Your last pic, is that a hole in the foot? I would need to see the complete throat pictured and top of front feet with emphasis on inside of the thumb toes to try and sex, it is more difficult in albinos, Bill

When I said "not a hole" I was talking about this. in the previous photo it looks like a hole, but as you can see. is the opposite.

It looks like your frog has not reached maturity from the pics you provided , therefore I can't tell at this time, Bill

Sory about all the questions, But why it looks like not mature? When will I know if my frog as reached maturity? It is about the age? It is about the size or it is just about maturity? I'v never heard him.

Thanks Bill

Maturity is a generalization taking into account age, size, and type of animal. Your situation is hindered or made tougher by the fact it is albino. The best way to tell male is when it calls, after that secondary traits would be a black throat, not seen in yours because it is albino, in albino the throat spottings color would have to be seen to be more prevalent than the background color. The next trait would be the nuptual pad located on the inside knuckle area of the thumb, in normal frogs this will be a raised pad of flesh that is grey or black, yours is albino, there is no color to see, I also don't see flesh raised therefore taking this into account with the size of frog it is my opinion it is to young to tell, if the frog was a little larger with these traits I described I would say it is a female, hope this helps , Bill

My opinion is Female. Comparing to that pictures, It realy looks like female to me.
I'v already placed the sound of "male call" close to my frog sometimes and nothing happens, usualy males start calling lauther than the sound. I read somewhere.

A frog that size?

If You have not seen a nuptial pad or heard a croak by now, it's female.

And the thing on the back foot is the frogs digging spade.
