Can you get a picture of them together in the same shot? I don't have experience with red eyes but I have some tree frogs so maybe I can help

calling=male, HUGE=female.

Do you know how old they are? and like frogface said, a side by side would be awesome. Those are some pretty red eyes bud

First guess, 2 males. You need pics from above preferably side by side with something to compare size to.

well one of those little buggers keeps me up and calls all the time. I am pretty sure its just one that calls because I have watched him do it and the other one i have never heard or seen puff up. But they are both the same size and when I got them they were prolly 4 weeks old and now prolly around 8 months old now maybe a little less.

The first three pics of the one frog is the one that calls all night. But I will put up a side by side as soon as I get the chance.

Your calling male will be the dominant male, the submissive may not call.

You definitely have 1 male. Only males call. If the other is female, it will get much larger than the male. If it is male, like bill said, it may not call. I have 2 males and a female. Only 1 of the 2 males call. And thank you bill for answering that, I always wondered why my second male never called.

So I have two last questions then, if I didn't want to breed them really could they live peacefully together and coincide, and also if I do decide to trade one for a female or buy a female should I trade the one that is less dominant and that doesn't call?

They should be fine together for pets. If you want to breed multiple males is better to excite the breeding process.Two males should be fine to house with a female.If your going to get rid of one it really does not matter which., Bill
