    Default Load up your photos please...IMPORTANT!



    Hi all...testing a theory on sexing BUT we need a lot of specimen photos in order to do it.
    We need photos of your Bullies;
    One from above,
    One from the side (low down so you see it straight on)
    One from an angle of about 33´ so we can see the back bone.

    Photos need to be taken in a light setting please, no murky ones.

    DO NOT WRITE DOWN IF IT IS MALE OR FEMALE !!!!
    AND DO NOT LIST THE NAME (because it may give us a clue).
    As many of the moderators know you and your frogs I will do the guessing from the photos.

    Hmmmm thank you that´s all...continue as before

    I actually thought of you when getting a new baby. I will be keeping this thread up to date. Some of my reasoning for getting a new baby, was this thread, and to keep accurate amounts of exactly how much is fed on the path to adulthood. I realize my one addition is a drop in the bucket, but hopefully we can get new owners to contribute to it.

    Well your participation is very appreciated, seems you are the only one helping so far.
    I actually think a lot of people will not help simply because it seems that I have noticed something very simple which was missed
    by more experienced people.
    I used to keep Cane toads and you can tell the male from the female the same way at a very early age.
    Spine/tail bone seems to show on the male much more.
    I am just doing this to show others, I basically know it is true, just I have to provide some proof.
    Depending on the husbandry of the animal it seems to be at least an 80% rate of sexing correctly, the animal has to be in good health and been fed
    a good diet firstly. Underweight examples seem to be harder to sex because the spine protrudes in skinny animals a lot more.
    So your help will be wonderful

    Sounds great, let me get it all comfortable. I'll give you pictures from the requested angles and let's see how this pans out. I assure you it will be fed a varied diet, temps and humidity will be spot on.

    Keep in mind I have considered your theory on this sexing technique, it's one of the reasons I got a new baby. I would consider myself an experienced keeper, but my thirst for more knowledge is greater than my experience.

    ok let's guess I say it is a male probably given the monster ate 30 dubias in one sitting
    Save one animal and it doesn't change the world, but it surely changes the world for that one animal!

    Yup, I stated it in my "sex my frog" thread about a week or so ago. I took a couple quick shots with my cellphone today, I'll post those. =)
