    Question Bombina bombina

    I have some Bombina bombina(fire belly toads), and how can I know what is female or male ? If toad croaking , then it's 100% male ? (sorry for bad English)

    as long as it is really chirping yes, unreceptive females make a funny vibrating noise when grabbed by a horny male but it's different than an actual croak

    These toads are hard to sex. if they mount other toads, they're most definitely a male. and the ones that bark are male too.

    All of them are croaking when im took them in hand . But I don't know what is male croaking and what is female croaking ... Can you say me are they male or female if I take picture ?

    you sex them more by behavior than by looks. The male croaking sounds like a dog bark while the "dismount sound" can be made by both males and females and sounds like a quick little chirp or trill.
