the 2nd frog looks female. the 1st frog could go either way in my eyes. try and get a side pic, its easier to tell.

Ditto, a better pic of the first frog would help.

Cool, I'm thinking you have a pair based on the backs of the frogs. I'm not seeing much of a toe split on the male yet but toes can be deceiving sometimes. Could be their age too.
