i am looking for photos of blond boys, between the age of 7 to 12 that have very fuzzy/hairy arms. The best would be close-up shots and a higher resolution. The best would be if the face and at least one arm can be seen on the photo.
This will be used to document a university project about genetic inheritance and how certain genes can affect certain characteristics at a certain age and family background. (In this example, the theory is that blonds tend to start hair growth on certain bodyparts like arms and legs earlier before puberty starts than non-blonds).
thank you very much for your answer. I actually found one example. My gauge is very high, and this shows the minimum. Here is the link: http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2535/3937980725_cc97e3bc3f_b.jpg
It is important that the boy did not start puberty yet, so the maximum age is about 12. Some "triggers" on certain genes can cause much hairgrowth like that on a boys arm, depending on backround and other circumstances...
So the bottom line is, it sould be as much hair growth as possible.
Hi, sorry I thought that I had posted but I checked out the photo example and my son's arms are not nearly that hairy and the hair is much finer. I think it will be quite difficult to find a child of under 12 with that much body hair.
unbelieveably, i did a project very similar to this for an anatomy class in college a few years back. rather than a specific age group, it was on body hair growth among various ethnicities, postulating the common belief that middle eastern males (greek, turk, etc) were hairier than other ethnicities. while the common thought among society is that blonds are for the most part less hairy, I found the opposite to be true. Research was indeed tough, and finding pictures was even tougher. I didn't limit it t 7-12, but rather under 25. While your link certainly would be on the high end of arm hair for a boy under 12, I have seen several that easily exceed that. On my old desktop, I should still have some photos. You may email me at firstname.lastname@example.org , I'd be happy to share my research with you. It turned out to be a very interesting report!
