Sandy_Bear - thanks for asking for additional pics. Hope these are helpful. It's so nice of you to take the time to reply.

All opinions welcome !

First 4 pics are the same frog ( ? I'm calling a female)
She is always this color.

This frog was in quarantine for 3 months. I actually rescued it. It was at a little hole in the wall place and looked half dead-really skinny. It had scratches all over it's face from the stupid things they had in thank. The crickets in the tank were almost as big as the frog! It is with the others now and is doing very well.









Pic 5 - male
Pic 6 - male
No mistaking these 2 frogs are males.
They croak and call ALL night. One dances on the leaves and shakes the hole plant.





Thanks for looking !

Another way to try in sex the frogs is to measure them. You want to take a measurement of their Snout to Vent Lentght (SVL), which is the tip of their nose to their bum.
Males should be smaller then females, and be around 2 inches to 2-1/2 inches long.
Females should be larger then males, and be around 2-1/2 inches to 3 inches long.
Females should also be more robust then the males. (chubbier)
There are always exceptions to that though, I have a friend that has a male Whites tree frog, and he is ginormous! He is bigger then my biggest female.

The new rescue frog looks like she's coming along nicely, and starting to put some good weight on.

I have 4 RETF, two that are living in a 40 gallon breeder vert, and two that I just bought and are in quarantine. My two that are living in the tank, I'm pretty sure are female. They've never called to my knowledge, and they their tank is right next to my Greenies tank and my Whites tank, and they call back and forth to each other.

She? is longer and younger then the 2 males. She is very shy.
She has a little scar on the tip of her nose. It almost looks like a worn spot. Poor thing must have hit things so many times. It was actually an open abrasion when I brought her home. I don't care though. I she's great little survivor! She hit the honey pot- lives in a mansion.

I might be crazy !
I have a blue discuss ( I have 2 fresh H20 aquariums with discuss in them ) whose mouth is on the the side of her face. I bought her because I knew no one else would.

That does not make you crazy...I hope. I have a male crested with a severely twisted spine and a great disposition,a skunk gecko that I got with no tail and stuck sheds everywhere, and a skinny male red eye that unfortunatley didnt make it. Got em all for those same reasons. Cant help but root for the underdog.

lol well you aren't the only one. I have a soft spot for all those "neglected", "disposable", "retarded", "throw away", "less then perfect", "got bored of" type pets.
I have a parrot fish that is missing an eye and was at the pet shop for ages, I adopted a fat tail gecko that had fatty liver disease (RIP), a pair of baby clawed frogs that had their arms ripped of at the pet shop because they were housed with Jeweled Cichlids (RIP), and I just got adopted a group of 6 cresties that are very emaciated and malnourished.

It makes me happy to hear that there are other people out there that care enough to help out animals in need.

Jawsofafrog,
This happens every night. He is a very busy little man!
It might be the light and /or camera though?
I take these with w/my iphone, send them to myself, and then upload them into bucketphoto. It works.

Thanks for looking

What is a Cranwelli ?

It's a type of pac man frog. This species of pacman usually comes in Albino, green, brown. There are other colour morpsh too, but you usually find them in these 3 morphs.

Let me know how they do !!
They are coming along, I've only had them about 3 weeks or so now, and I don't expect them to be back to a normal weight until next summer.

I have 2 unsexed juveniles (one is 3 grams, one is 6 grams). The heads on them are much larger then then any of my healthy babies that are about the same weight. Both of these babies have no tails either.
I got 2 males, both around 25 grams, 8 years old, one is tailless.
I got 2 females. one is now tailless, 8 years old, and 28 grams. The other female is 21 grams, around 5-7 years old, has FTS and I should probably remove her tail in the near future as well.
