I was told it was a boy but I'm leaning girl. Skittles is now 9 months old and has very little color. When I brought it up to the guy I got em from he told me that they wont get full color till 18 months. Well I expected some by now tho lol. I'm worried it's a girl and i haven't even begun research on making the habitat girl friendly yet! These are the two colors skittles displays, when real angry he can go bright red but I didn't want to stress him out for a picture.
