Those aren't both Ceratophora stoddarti are they? They look totally different,even if they are male and female.
What a world....

I personally love the horn of the Ceratophora stoddarti. Looks like a elephant tusk. Almost a ivory look to it. It's bad but no one would find any of them. Not likely anyway.

Found a great link and quite a nice website informing about Sri Lankan reptiles.

You have to have a look at this website. WOW.
