Picking Out Hold Backs

20180910_181630.jpg So I'm getting ready to sell my babies and I'm picking out some male hold backs. I'm hoping for a red bodied chameleon and wanted to get some opinions from those who have had baby red bodied panthers. They are 4 months old.

First this is a male, right?

Would you think this would be a red body? All my other males are beautiful greens and blues but this one I'm just not 100% sure on.

Looks male to me. Depends on the lineage, because if he has blue bar parents who don't have a lot of red, he might just be partly red. He seems like a red bar, but that could of course change with age, and he appears to be getting some yellow? Definitely a handsome little guy.

What lines are in the clutch @Chameleon Mike? My vote would be late blooming male. I'd be happy to grow it out and let you know .
Very kind of you to offer but I'll have to decline that fine request. lol.
I tend to agree with you being a late bloomer. He doesn't look like the females and most of the males look like the sire, second pic. The first pic is the sire to the female.
Should be exciting seeing his colors come in regardless.

Thanks for the response. I see the yellow like in the dam's sire. I'm having high hours for this little guy.

I love his color combination! My opinion is that unless you have another male that you decide to keep instead, this guy would be interesting to see his colors as he grows. You have some gorgeous lineage in your chams!

Thank you.
I am planning on holding back another male, for a while, to see the colors come in and keep track of the coloring from the pairing.
