without calling
 
Hi I was wondering if female could get pregnant without male's calling.
Because I'm pretty sure that male havent calling.

Depends on what you mean by pregnant. Darts and other frogs have external fertilization, so no, the female doesn't get pregnant.

What type of frogs do you have? There are some species with very quiet calls, so is it possible that they are calling but you just haven't heard it?

Thank you for your reply :) , I forgot to mention the type of frog. It's bumblebee, so... I bet the male didn't start calling, since they make loud sound...
Anyway the female uesd to eat a lot, she used to be super fat. But a month ago she started to act weird. she only eats 3~5ffs a day since then. Funny thing is her belly is still fat, althouh her legs seems to be feeble than before.. hm... I thought about seperating her but then I didn't wanted to stress her out in this kind of sitaution. I just don't know what to do now;; I really don't want to let this one die :(

I hate to suggest this, but it kind of sounds like she is impacted. This is not a good thing. http://www.dendroboard.com/forum/bre...le-heehee.html

Yeah frogs don't get "pregnant". Fertilization is external. It sounds like one frog might be sick if it does not eat as much now. How old are they and were they sold to you as a pair or just two unsexed frogs?

Posting a photo of the frog may help us all decide if her size is normal or abnormal, just because you aren't observing the frog eating a large number of flies doesn't mean right away that it isn't eating an appropriate amount, such as when you are not looking or feeding on other food sources in the terrarium.

English is my second language actually.... sorry about the word choice :(
well.. I had them since they were froglets so... that makes them about 1year old.
They were from different parents and they show a huge gap in size, so I believed bigger one to be female...but now that I think about it, I never heard neither one calling, so they both could be female..
hm....but I think I heard that bumblebee shows huge difference in size between male and female. Don't they??
