@Jolly: From the reference link here (sorry I forgot to add it earlier), I think they may be the same species: "Color and pattern variation is extensive in Florida juvenile specimens and in adults in more tropical areas. "

I have a similar spotting. Do you think they are related? http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/160...
