    Default African Dwarf Frog Help!

    So I recently purchased a new african dwarf frog after my other one died. I cant seem to tell if its a guy or a girl. It has a white spot behind its front legs but its not like a white pimple. It is also kind of fat. I'm really confused. Any help would be nice.

    thanks alot but now she is acting kind of weird. She keeps floating at the top and cant seem to swim down. The other two frogs are okay. Is she sick?

    hmm..Males: Behind the front arms (on their side), males have distinct white “bumps” or “pads,” which are called “nuptial” pads and sometimes referred to as “Post-Axillary Subdermal Glands.” These somehow play a part in mating. While some females have small, indistinct pads, males will have very prominent ones.





    As for the behavior..ADF’s can be very lazy creatures, and some prefer hanging around one spot all day. Some will hide in their cave, some will come out and balance on their two hind feet for hours. Some will float at the surface as if they are dead (Don’t be too alarmed at first. Poke them gently if you feel the need and they should prove to be quite alive.). Some will do headstands and some will practice odd Yoga positions. It’s just their amusing nature.
