He's pretty Smile The article said he could be orange from environmental factors, what kind of environmental factors could turn something orange other than someone spray painting him???

He could be fabulous and just trying a new look. You know, a little feng shui of the scales. It could even be an identity crisis. Maybe it is trying to look like a handbag.

I saw this a while back and thought it may have been dry clay. That stuff usually looks just like it when it's dry. There was thread on fauna that I thought pointed towards the answer, gotta find a link.

I agree with the clay idea. Or swimming through an area that had a lot of rust output from corroding pipes. Both would make sense. The color while neat, just doesn't look natural or permanent
