    Male or Female FBT?

    I know it's hard to tell without watching the toads for awhile, but I have also heard about the bumps on their skind indicating which sex they were? I was curious which is which? My toads skin is almost smooth, he/she has very few bumps. It's still young I'm thinking judging from size, but I also haven't heard it "call"

    No idea really. The best way to tell is the size of their heads. Males tend to have broader heads than females.

    I agree you can tell by the size of their heads but also if you have several together body size and habits can help you. I have 17 of these little hunnys in a large exo with green anoles and when they start calling its amazing

    AHHHHH no no no!!!

    They should NEVER be in a captive environment with any other frog or lizard. FBTs emit a toxin which in the long run WILL kill your anoles. I don't think exoterra makes anything big enough to allow the proper riddance of such toxins. You would need a good strong canister filter with ample water.

    not to mention I'm sure the anoles are stressing out the poor toads.

    Needs to separate ASAP.

    I have had these together for just over 18mths and they are totally fine. I do regular substrate cleaning and also my fire-bellied toad book and anole book say they are ok together. If the anoles were stressing out then surely they would'nt be laying eggs on a regular basis.

    There actually is a short list of other creatures that can be housed with fire-bellied toad and will live long normal lives. Such as Green Tree Frogs, ADF's, Firebelly and Eastern Newts, Green Anole...even a Paradise Fish. However strict cleaning guidelines must be upheld, the more space the better. But yup it can be done.

    I would like to see this "short list" and their reasons as to why its OK to mix species. Especially species that emit toxins.

    My statement above comes with 27 years of keeping, breeding and living in Peru, Ecuador, Hawaii to study amphibian biology, physiology and mating habits. It seems that Trent University saw fit to graduate me due to my thesis of these animals, not to mention, they have been thriving in my 75 gallon for 11 years now and breeding VERY successfully. Not trying to be a jerk...just do some more research before you jump down someones throat!

    cheers

    My research is preformed in the field and a laboratory as an intern thank you. Any online studies are from government websites...where do you study? As a man approaching 50 I have dedicated myself to the study and care for all of gods creatures for roughly 30 years.

    Cheers

    Re: Male or Female FBT?

    The problem is, is a blanket statement like you said above, can mislead novice keepers in thinking that keeping these animals are ok, WITHOUT knowing that they need a larger enclosure, stronger filtration, more hiding spots, etc....

    And how the heck were we supposed to know your level of "expertise" on a web forum.

    And I hate to say it, your screen name doesn't exactly portray you as a scientific expert. No offense.
