Assasi Triggerfish (rhinecanthus assasi) coloration?

I have kept a lot of different types of triggers, but I haven't is the Assasi Triggerfish. I have only seen one in person and it didn't have the bright orange eyes. I was wondering if maybe the juveniles don't have orange eyes and as they mature they develop with beautiful coloration of the eyes along with the beautiful green body, or if it just depends on the location where the specific assisi triggerfish came from.

Does anybody have any information on this trigger?

I've never seen an Assasi with a green body, they are very similar in coloration to the huma huma (picasso) trigger. FWIW...they are meaner than damsels and have big teeth.
