Sexing your pdf

I was wondering is there any easy way to find out what sex your frogs are?

Determining sex in PDFs varies by species.

I'd post pictures of the frogs in question. Try for dorsal and profile shots.

That's probably too young/small to be anywhere near accurate.

auratus are a little harder to sex than most PDF's.

Hey, grab a beer or a 7-up if you are not old enough, and kick back and enjoy the hobby. Your frogs will still be there 1.5 years from now, so you'll have plenty of time to pair them up, design breeding situations ect. Plenty of time for all that.

Hey Tony. They do need to be a bit older before trying to determine sex. As Phil mentioned auratus really can be a pain in the butt to sex sometimes as well.
