It was bought at a pet store, but I saw pictures of the ones with yellow stripes on their head, but this one looks different. He has 2 bright orange stripes that sort of fade to yellow closer to the body. He also has an orange dot above each eye.... :I have 3.5 of them and they are great. Can you tell me more about it. Does it have the 3 yellow stripes on the head? If you bought it at a pet store it probably is. They like 50:50 land and water. enjoy your new asian.
