Default Sexing Leucs

I have had 4 leucs for about a year now, and they were about 4 months old when I got them. They have all grown a lot and have been doing great. About 4 or 5 months ago I began to hear calling from their vivarium. I always try to sneak over to their vivarium when one of them is calling but they always stop before I can see which of the 4 it is. Anyway, as a first time frog owner I would love to breed this group in the future, but I'm having a very difficult time sexing them. If anyone could help me with this it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks so much.

Leucs are hard to sex unless they are gravid or seen calling. Some people can do it. But, you are going to need better pictures.

As a general rule of thumb, the rounder and fatter they are usually means that they are female. The males tend to be a bit more sleek.

This will help you get a general idea of who to keep an eye on because spotting the caller is def going to be your definitive answer...
