The first one is 90% sure a male, but the regina might also be a male. Have any better shots of the regina in the front, or their toes?

this source (I haven't been able to find a better tinc morph guide) lists Regina and Giant Orange as the same thing... supposedly in Europe they are known as Regina (the town these frogs are originally collected by) but here in the US they are known as Giant Orange

The Azureus looks male to me. The other one, I'm not sure what morph it is.

Thanks everyone. So are Giant oranges and reginas considered the one in the same here in the US? I'm interested in moving this frog, but I wanted to get opinions on the morph first...the frog just didnt look quite like some of the other reginas I've seen...

Hi Josh,

Giant Orange and Regina are from the same locality (the town of Regina in French Guyana). They were all known as Regina in Europe, until someone importing them to North America renamed a group "Giant Orange" for maketing reasons.

In the U.S., the frogs with blue legs are generally known as Giant Oranges and frogs with little or no blue as Reginas. Sean Stewart follows the European understanding of the frogs, where the names are reversed.

Good luck with them, Richard.
