Anyone have some ways to identify yuma and florida ricordeas? I mean I see many ricordeas around but not sure how to tell the difference. Pics of the types would be a great help.
Thanks!

Yumas have bumps around the mouth opening floridas do not

Thanks for the clarification. So I assume that is the only way to tell?

yumas also almost always have only one mouth, and florida rics tend to have more than one...

Thanks for responding. I always thought when there are more than one mouth, it means they are splitting.

my yuma has never gotten a second mouth before splitting it normally walks and leaves behind part that forms into another. with my florida rics alot of them have 2 or more mouths and stay that way unless i cut them...
