Hello, all. I wrote this in mz main thread, but will ask here again for help.
I need some help sexing mz two frogs. I do not think they are male and female, rather same sex. But wich? I know that the pictures are not good and not enough, but I w`ll try to make some better in the future. Any idea?

(1) How old are they currently?
(2) Have you heard any calling or seen any aggressive interaction between them?

My guess is that from these photos nobody can give you any confident answers.

I would make sure the room they are in is completely silent. The call Tincs make is low pitch and low volume and almost impossible to hear outside the tank unless there is total silence in whatever room they are in.

Based on the larger heart shaped toe pads id guess male, but this is totally speculative. Hearing them call would confirm.

1. They are at least 2 years old
2. I haven`t heard a call yet. But I didn`t also notice aggrassion. The are mostly on their own, but sometimes move together. I think as well they have a different sleeping coconut hut, if that matters.

I thought on the picture, where both frogs are seen on the glass can be told if theq are same sex or not. I will try to hear, but so far there was nothing.

One of the other ways to sex tincs is by looking at their backbone. Females have more of an arch while males are more streamlined. A picture of the frogs where the backbone is visible would probably be helpful.

The glass picture is excellent. I would say both males. I don't know that I have ever actually heard one of my Tincs call. It's very, very quiet.

Thanks Mark, I think so as well. They are very identical and with big toe pads. And because there is no conflict between them, I thought they should be both male.

No problem. Just be careful and keep an eye on them. Neither look very fat and the way you will probably know there is conflict is if one or both lose weight. This can happen with two males, too.

I will keep an eye on them. I do not feed them too much, as I read somewhere, that often the frogs are overfead and too fat. I don't notice, that anyone eats less or is somehow harassed. But in the last days they do interfere a lot with each other. I am not sure if it is agression, affection or nothing :) And they both sleep in the same coconut hut while in the Terrarium there are 4 provided. Is that typical for two males?

You are doing the right thing with the feeding. You are right that most of us have fat frogs :) Just make sure that neither one loses any weight. It depends on what it means that "they interfere with each other". That could be aggression. The fact that they sleep in the same place could mean lots of things. Not a good or bad sign.
