Thanks for the head's up Blogie! :) The C. leopardus is also the one with the wide mantle that usually does a marilyn monroe thing, right? Do you have any idea why they follow each other like that?:)

Hi Ike. This isn't C. leopardus, which has black spots that are hollow. Also, thi sis the right body shape for H. tryoni. You know what, this species is often seen in groups of 2 or 3, arranged like a train. :)
