    They have a completely different skeletal structure. I have a harder time telling the difference between lobo and symphyllia sometimes.

    Yeah, I agree. I know a guy who scored 2 wellsos at a frag swap for barely anything. I asked him how he could tell, his answer was "It's not really easily explained" haha, I said, that's cool.
