I went to my lfs after a long absence. Nikki posted the some juvenile kubotais possibly. Anyhow I checked them out, there seem to be two distinct species. One was definitely kubotais with proper arkings at a mere 1 inch. Theother otherssame size but with a histrionica type pattern but with horizontal peaks on the bars with a much higher contrast black whitish yellow. The latter looked exactly like this pic.

Which later turned in this at two years at 2.5inches.

I will post some comparison pics of these two guys this week.
