Default Help sexing Brazilian Yellow Head

Hello everyone,
I have been researching darts for around three years and finally purchased my first forglet 15 months ago. All has gone very well, im just a little curious on the sex of the animal, I have my theory but would like to get opinions from more experienced keepers. Thanks.

Welcome to the board!

Looking female to me. These guys are among my easiest frogs to sex (I think). The males seem to have not only really big toe pads, but for mine, they are also white, so it is a bit easier than some of the others. Also, she seems to have an angle in her back that I have learned to associate with female tincs. That's my guess, anyway.

Looks like a female due to the small toe pads.

Awesome. Thanks for your quick response. I have this angle to if it helps, physically I have to agree with you. I could have sworn I heard a slight call a few months back but I could have been mistaken. .

I suppose it's possible, but I have never heard any of my tincs or my azureus call. And, I actually have seen their throat pouches puffing out and still not heard anything :-) My ears ain't so great, though ...

Maybe it's just the pics, but the frog looks quite small for a 15 month frog.

I agree it is slightly small for the age. I acquired him from the Pomona reptile show last year so its a rough estimate on the age. I will try and get a better size reference pic when I get home from work.

I dont know where it all goes. She eats 20-30 ff a day, dusted with rapashy (replaced every 6 months) she also has springtails in his viv. She seemed to be growing fast until a few months back, growth slowed down. Any suggestions?

You might of gotten a runt. Looks healthy, great pet frog if that's what your looking for. At 15 months, not much your able to do to add much size.
