This extremely popular hisser comes in two color forms; red pronotum (pictured) and black pronotum, with some individuals having blended features of both. The color change from newborn to adult is drastic: young nymphs are gray and quickly transition to black. From there, they gain hints of orange and yellow before gaining vague stripes of orange or yellow on a black base color. Once mature, they gain their final beautiful orange, yellow, and black color scheme.
