This is a discussion on Sexing green tree frogs within the Tree Frogs forums, part of the Frogs & Toads category; I just got two of these guys a week ago and just wondering if there is a way to sex ...
I just got two of these guys a week ago and just wondering if there is a way to sex these frogs. i have heard some calling in the terrarium but i get up to see who it is and it stops.
They may eventually feel safe enough that they will keep singing when you look. I know whenh a lot of my frogs start calling for the first time, they have a tendency to shut up if I moved to look at them. But after a while they become bolder and won't care if you're looking. When my red-eyes went into the breeding chamber for the first time, they wouldn't shut up, even if I put my hand there with them. My male tomato frog started singing while I was feeding the tomatoes. My fire-bellied toads will even call if they are in my hand.
So just give them time to get to know you and realize you are not a threat.

its funny, 5 minutes after i posted this on the forum one of them started to call and i happen to be right by the terrarium and saw it. now im just wondering if the other is a female.
These are pretty easy to sex - hold the frog behind the forearms and lift up its head - check the throat area for (a) dark colouration and (b) if it has a vocal sac.
sweet than it appears i have a male and a female. without even trying.
So if they do have the vocal sac & dark colorations, are they male or female?
Also, I just added another American Green Tree Frog today, it is already made itself @ home in the enclosure... lol
Yea, I kind of figured that.. lol *thumbs up*
What about grey's are they the same??
I have 2 American Green Tree Frog (female) & grey=male if the above is the same.
quick update: i have a male and a female, the male calls but i have gotten no mating in the terrarium. any suggestions?
Please read the care article on Gray Tree Frogs. Same requirements apply to Green Tree Frogs in order to get them to breed.
