    Default My new Bullfrog - Is it a P. edulis or a P. adspersus

    I've just got this baby from an online shop, and I couldn't figure it out that it is a P. adspersus or a P. edulis.
    Here is some pictures of it.

    you can tell by the neck at that age, it gets really wide, whereas females just seem to have a stumpy head which goes straight onto the body if you know what i mean.

    males also croak (moo) like mad at that age. also the males eat like pigs while the females not so much.

    males also get a lot more colourful underneath the armpits, mines has a dark orange/red where the female remains cream all over like in your pics.

    your frog is a spitting image of the female i had. i kept a male and female in the same enclosure and by 3.5 - 4 inches it was so obvious which gender they were.

    generally by 3 inches you can sex them easily. hope this helps.
