Dear Ken,

OK, if it IS in fact a species of Gonotopus and is all-green, then, and
ACCORDING TO THE EXPERTS who have examined the 'naughty bits', it is a but
color form of the common giraffe knee, G. bovinii. I have never been real
'comfortable' w/ this determination, so maybe you can make
observations/photos, collect specimens, and maybe send a sample of leaf
tissue to be compared to that of the 'real' G. bovinii (so you must also
send a leaf sample of the 'real' G. bovinni for comparison) to someone who
has the capabilities to do this DNA testing (Eduardo is the only one who
comes to mind at this moment) and see what comes back at you!

Good Luck,
