So it's around 9 months, my guess its 99% female if its that old and that size with only peachy coloration. My male had colour coming through when I bought him at 4 and half- 5 months old

When we bought it we were advised that they thought it was a male as it shows red coloration and when we spray the viv we have noticed this as well, what does this mean?

Hmm.... Red where? On the bars? What was it advertised as when u bought it? A blue bar ambilobe? Red bar ambilobe? Or not an ambilobe at all? Just most males have a green background colour ( depending on locale) nosy be's have blue and others are different

Haven't had a sambava but it could be late developing colour, my blue bar ambilobe had red bars up until just a month ago and since then till now have completely changed to blue, was a quick dramatic change really, this could be the case with yours, they keep developing colour up until around 2 years old I believe so there's plenty time yet, mine is changing bit by bit every week or so I notice differences and mine has just turned 1......I'm newish too chameleons myself but maybe wait till more of an expert gives u a reply...bump for u
