A carapace not only a mother could love

Tlitocatl albopilosus juvenile male and a stunningly golden carapace
My male t albo juvie also has a pinkish/gold carapace! I thought nic albos usually have a more silvery black carapace compared to hondurans, but it seems like the females have that. Could this be sexual dimorphism or just the result of hybrids of this species?

I am not sure. I picked this boy up as a Nicaraguan, and the setae looks correct but we will see what the next molt looks like. I believe is he 1-2 away from pen.
