    OK! I was in Florida and a few days later one of my Fire Bellied Toads died. We got a new toad but she/he seems fat. I walked in one day only to see another one of my Fire Bellies hanging on to her/him. I pulled the toad off her/his back and put the female/male in a holding tank until I can see what happens. Her/his sides are chubby looking, and does not look like a feeding issue. The toad is perfectly healthy, I just need to know 2 things...

    1. What was the Toad doing on my other toad's back? Was it trying to mate or mating?
    2. How can you sex a Fire Bellied Toad (This Question Is Somewhat Needed)

    It sounds like the roads were in amplexus and you probably stressed them out a lot by separating them. Near impossible to tell unless they mate or you hear criaking but a pic would help anyway
