Female Bowfin Fins Green?

hmm, maybe it has the green fins by genetics and it simply has green fins all year, thats all i can think of
Thanks, but the fins just "greened up" in the last few weeks. I was really sure it was a female when we collected it. Then, it got the green fins. To me, that means a male Bowfin. But, when I opened it up it was loaded with eggs so...just wondering if anyone else have ever seen green fins on a female Bowfin.

IMO this is not all that terribly uncommon. I have seen quite a few females with greenish Pectoral pelvic and anal fins. They are not usually as brilliant as the males but they are not far off.
They definitely weren't as brilliant as the males fins. But green nonetheless. Thanks for shining some light on this one. I had just never seen it before.
