If I were going to sex them, I would say auratus #1 is male.... auratus #2 female and both cobalts female. Both species can be fairly dimorphic so that is purely opinion, but just on looks that is how I feel.

given the frogs provided how early in (months) can you usually start to tell the sex of them?

Thanks for the help tclipse. when do you think I should separate the females?

Most people say the frogs have to been over a year old to be able to sex them my frogs are just over a year so I figured I would post them to see if anyone could tell yet

Whatever sex those auratus are, one thing is for sure...their markings are absolutely stunning. Nicest looking ones I've seen!

I'm no expert, but with my costa rican auratus the females are noticeably larger than the males (fatter and a little longer). Toe pads on the males are larger but the difference is not that noticeable. I would guess auratus #1 is male, and #2 is also male. Try playing some auratus calls too see how they react.

I have played some calls before and they really didn't do anything, I get the calls off YouTube so I don't know if the background noise scare them. If anyone has a good clear call I'd love to use it.

I'm going to agree that your two auratus look like two males. Females are noticeably larger (girth and length) compared to males.

Hi Wayne,

If you have raised the two female cobalts together, you probably won't see too much stress until you try to add a male to the group. The best thing to do would be to try to make a trade for a male with someone here, then you'll be set.

Good luck with them, Richard.

Wayne, go to mistking for some good audio calls of auratus and other darts. You can find them under resources I think.

I have raised them together so it is nice to know that they won't stress each other out, that's why I was wondering if I should split them.

I do have a local show coming up this weekend I'll see if I can make a trade with someone there. But if I can't if anyone is with in driving distance I'll make a trade for a male. Would ship the the temp. Here is starting to drop
