    In this photo - one is a male and one is a female
    Take a guess?
    One is definitely a male as I just witness him calling her
    -------------
    My other pair ( from John Clare ) previously paired off --- are tucked away in their favorite spot.
    The male has been a been shy lately and backs himself into a brom if I open the door ; and the female hangs out in font of him. Eggs ?

    I just love these frogs !

    Thanks ,Lynn

    Grats Lynn, 2 pair, thats Awesome!

    I am gonna guess that the one on the right is the female.

    Eggs? Well at least you know you will have no problem getting them to good homes!

    How did i miss this thread? The one on the left is the male. And if your other male is backing into a brom, i would check that brom for eggs. Are you planning on removing the eggs? Or let them raise them on their own?

    Bingo !
    Yes......the one on the L is the male. This photo is of my newly acquire imitators. ( long story !)

    The pair that hangs out at/in the brom is -- John's pair. ( got them in Oct 2012)
    It has been very difficult to get close enough to see into the brom.

    I don't want to disturb them.

    the one on the right is more robust, pear shaped and a wee bit stockier so my guess would have been that one. in my defense i didnt read the thread when i typed my answer but just peeked and hehehe ............. anyhoooooo. I have a mantella that is very large and wide at the hips in comparison to the others who I think is a female. I am curious to see if any of the males try to whooooo her over. she is the biggest in the terrarium. i read somewhere that ebanuis are larger than betsileo (scratches head).
