Tonight I was misting all my tanks and my male started to croak. Well I went over to where my Female is being quarentined and started to spray her down and she did a one second, deep, whispery croak. she only did two of them. Ive heard her do it before,and none of the sound sshe emits last longer then that. She is 5 inches StV and is enormous compared to my male. her croaks have nothign on him. Her throat didnt blow up or anything, i watched her do it. but if i wasnt standing next to the tnak,i wouldnt have heard it,thats how light it was(my males you can hear all the way outside) all this croaking got my pacman to start up too. my house is a zoo...

So anyways,back to my original point, do you think my Daphne could still be a Daphne? I was told it was just a responsive or defensive croak. I really hope thats thee case. I mean it was seriously miniscule compared to my male. what do yous think?

Females will make a short, brief call in response to a male. I believe it's purpose in the wild is to help them find one another to mate - or maybe just her way of letting him know if she's in the mood. With her size and your other description I would wager that Daphne is in fact a Daphne. And isn't the froggie chorus just the best?!?! I love when all of mine get going to each other - so cute! I have a bass (WTF) a soprano (GTF) and an alien (RETF) - gotta love em!

Frog "concertos" are the best! I can't wait until the RETFs start calling, although I'm pretty sure I've heard some kind of noise from their tank!

there is a zoo chorus in my house,its insane!!!!

first the dogs will start barking, which will make the parrots start screaming, which makes My male WTF start croaking, which makes the female do a response, which makes the Pacman do his weirdo meowey noise. and when the frogs start callign the bird starts dancing,because hes crazy and singing "take me out to the ballgame" ugh! id like to say i love it but when your trying to sleep after a days work it can be a pain in the butt. Thankfully it only lasts about a minute or two,depending if the dogs will ever shut up. OI!

as becki said, females will make a "respones call" to the males after or during the males call. it sounds more like a higher
pitch "eeekkkkkkkkk". when females make this call their throat does not expand like the males.

Does anyone have tips on sexing as both mine are adults, but very young. Maybe at the subadult stage, but just barely.
