    Default Male or Female Pixie Frog?

    Okay, so I know I posted the exact same questiom a few other times and everyone said it looked male. But I was researching and it said males should grow fast but females don't and mine has stayed its same size for like 6 months. Can you guys tell me a definite gender so I don't have to keep posting around. Btw I'm hoping its male. I WANT A 9'' FROG LOL. But its sorta 50/50

    Definite male.

    Just so you know most captives don't reach tbat size and both genders grow at the same rate until they reach around 4" to 5" then females will stop or slow in growth so much that it isn't detectable whereas males will continuew to grow rapidly until around 6" when they slow down, but may continue to grow at a noticeable rate, but will be much slower. This is a male. Mine is just over a year old and is only 7" SVL and wrighs over 2 pounds.

    Male! Now; the 9 in. frog you want is probably not going to happen. It is normal for captive fish, amphibians, etc. to grow smaller than their wild counterparts.

    Also, there appears to be various GABF morphs that include big heads, smaller heads, and size variations depending on their source of origin. Among captive bred one's; there might even be hybrids in the commercial population.
    Remember to take care of the enclosure and it will take care of your frog !​
