Gray-brown body with light colored diamonds down the back. The area before the tail is black, which is where they get their name from.
This was as found, just hanging out on a cloudy, rainy day trying to soak up the sun rays it could. In the desert, on the side of a mountain.
This used to be considered C. molossus, but was split apart and only C. ornatus is found in Texas now.
