    Of the hundreds I have seen that is the first juvi I have seen that looks like that. Most look like the adult even in the juvi state. PI is one of the big exporters of those.

    You should be OK, that's the upper threshold though, especially as they age. You do know how big they get, right?

    When full grown I think a deep fry in peanut oil with a tempura batter would be excellent! :)
