    Question Gender and Type Identification?

    Hi everyone!

    I was hoping I could get some help on determining gender as these two are to young to tell behavior wise. So looks are the only way I believe at this point will tell. I've been holding off on names for them since I don't know genders.

    I believe I have at least one female (the green) and I think the brown one is I think female but I can't tell by the spot on it's ear.

    The other question I have is, can you tell whether I have southern or northern leopard frogs? I thought northern before I got them, but am thinking southern at this point. They just turned to frogs a week or two ago so they aren't full grown at all in terms of length yet.

    I can't get pictures uploaded so you will be directed to my account on instagram with the frog pictures.

    (Not the best pictures but hoping good enough)

    Key for the comments

    2 - Green frog

    1 - Brown frog

    (I'm aware holding them is very bad for their skin it was very minimal and probably the only time in their lives I will do this.)

    Leopard frog two (green) length atm 1" (they just turned to frogs time wise, not full grown)

    Leopard frog one (brown) length atm 1.5" (they just turned to frogs time wise, not full grown)

    Thanks so much for any help!

    I can't see the ear of the green one but they look like northern specimens! The brown one may be a female with how big the frog is already. You can always wait until you hear one calling to know the sex. Sometimes they can be photogenic and sometimes not. Glad to see I helped you on the other thread. I think you would be very satisfied with a 40 or 75 Gallon. They look healthy!

    The ear on the green seems pretty small compared to the other brown one. If the brown is female then the green definitely is. So I'm going to assume I've got two females then! I will be keeping an eye out for noise but so far nothing.

    Wow northerns! I assumed southerns which I believe are slightly smaller. Guess I should really be keeping my eye out for a larger tank, I've got some very big ideas for tank design just need a larger tank!

    Yes you were extremely helpful on the other thread as well as this one! Frogs are a whole new concept for me so I like to be informed, and can be a little over board with my question relating to them. I've owned gerbils, cats, betta, mollies, as well as two dogs, so this is really a new concept haha.

    Thanks sooooo much!
