    Still a little too young to be 100%, but I'd say he's a male based on the early coloring and the width of his wad in comparison to his body.

    Male. Picture that gave it away is the one he's looking at camera.

    Please wash your frog off after letting it run free on the floor. The pic where he is facing the camera shows a large hair stuck to his face which could be quite devastating to his bowels if it were accidentally ingested.

    still too young to tell, looks male to me, based on a shape of the head, but not 100% sure, he would have orange ( ish) armpits even at that size, and he has none that I can see and middle green lane on his back is quite visible too, but then they differ in their coloring, so just wait and see he should croak ( or not) at about 4'size
    Save one animal and it doesn't change the world, but it surely changes the world for that one animal!

    orange armpit is not a reliable way ton sex these frogs. I have had with with alot of orange and full grown males with very little.

    Eel Noob is right.
    I have a female with a lot of orange.
    To me, the pictures show a male, no doudt with the one on which the frog is facing the camera.

    yeah, male - very big and wide head in comparison to the body, love facial expression in the last pics : " do you have any food for me? please I'm cute little hungry frog"

    From what I understand, they should have some yellow under the jaw and arms. That frog is all white underneath, so it's probably female.
