    Default Pixie frog male or female?

    Just bought this frog yesterday from a local pet store.
    The owner of the pet store told me it was a male, but I want to be sure.
    I don't know the specific age of the frog.
    It it 5 inches from nose to butt.

    I'm pretty much certain. Do you see how the head is broad and the mouth has a very slight "beaked" apperance? Those are factors that indicate that the frog is a male.

    I once read that you could sex them by the size of their eardrums, males should have eardrums bigger or same size as their eyes, females the opposite. I never saw pixies in real life so I don't know if this is really true...

    That's American Bullfrogs, not African Bullfrogs.

    I say female because the eyes look more bulging than the males would at 5 inches. Also in picture 1 you can notice the small head.

    male because females have a line coming through the back males dont have lines and males have bigger and wider heads than females
