I've been trying to sex my T. pictum froglets by using a flashlight in an attempt to find evidence of sperm ducts but have been unsuccessful. I am able to see the sperm ducts under light in my 2 adult male frogs, could it be that they have just not become evident?

This is the most detailed picture I could take (no backlight). I will try to take better ones tomorrow.

Well I did a water change and took the time to inspect each and every froglet and found no Sperm ducts. I guess they don't develop until later, I will check again once they start calling...

If there are any glass frog owners/breeders I would love to know when/if you are able to see the sperm ducts / oviducts on your male/female frogs.

Can't help with Theloderma, but in adult male golden Mantella you can usually see the sperm ducts. No idea for juveniles.

I'll do a check with my reed frogs as they tend to have semi transparant bellies as well.
