Help! I want to name my new little friend but I don't really know how to tell if she's male or female. I'm leaning towards female. She's about 8" from snout to vent if that helps! I haven't heard a peep out of her even though I've held her in different ways.... If I need to get more pictures that's fine just let me know what you need...thanks. Super psyched! I've always loved toads!

Sheesh, that's a tough one. I understand males grow sturdier forearms during breeding season and females grow larger than males, but unless you have a male and female side by side, I think it would be hard to tell. ???

I would have no idea how to sex a toad. I'm pretty much lost with any critter who's junk is not on the outside. But that is the coolest toad I think I have ever seen. Congratulations on your new pet, it's beautiful.

Thank you! I saw it at the reptile show in Tampa and thought so too.
