Yes indeed and that's probably because your one is not fully grown..

Raiyan, check this out- https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=... have given the ID for this one. But i see that the abdomen of Atul's spotting is larger when compared to mine and also color is dark in his spotting. The eye position is slightly different. Also the color of front legs and the pattern on it is different too..!
