The most characteristic feature of Strophurus strophurus are the bright yellow rings around its irises as well as single yellow segments of its tail which are best visible when the tail is bend. Its skin is strongly interspersed by tubercle scales of different sizes which you can also find on its tail. S. strophurus is a peaceable contemporary. Without any problems males can be kept together with bucks of other species like S. c. ciliris, S. wellingtonae et cetera. Although caution is advised together with S. taenicuada and williamsi.
