    Smile I think my Western Toad is a male?

    I have a Western Toad (Bufo boreas) who is about 4 inches long. When I first caught him he made a chirping noise that sounded just like a dog's squeak toy. Sometimes during the night he makes a short series of quiet chirps which remind me of a bird "cooing." I know Western Toads lack vocal sacks so their calls are rather quiet and sound like a chirp, so that makes sense. I'm just not sure if females also have the ability to make these chirping noises or if it's only males?

    Tonight I was tong feeding him crickets and he made the quiet bird-like call right after he had eaten one. It was really cool to see and hear and I'm guessing it's safe to assume he's male now?

    The males do have the faint cheeping call. Females are unable to make any noise whatsoever. I have a female, and she's never once made a noise. You have a boy!
