With those colors, I wouldn't doubt it.

Hi Scott,
Just recieved two of these beauties last Friday, (June 13th),eager to hear anything you might have to say about them, especially about determining sex. One is noticably larger , both healthy and acive. Would I be right in assuming the larger to be a female?

Hi Michael,
Congrats! From what I have read the females are larger and the red/orange area is brighter and the males area is more of a pinkish tint than Orange/red.
I keep mine in a rubbermaid container with a few inches of coconut stuff with a layer of moss scattered around but not tottally covering the substrate. I feed her phoenix worms and small mealworms with an occasional wild bug. Coat the prey every few feedings with a calcium/D3 powder with a small amount of vitamin and mineral powder mixed in occasionnally .
Do you have pics?

No, Scott,
Waiting on a friend w/ a better camera for pics.
I'm almost certain , from what you've said, that I do have a M/F pair. Also, I pretty much exhausted every internet resource I could find , and they say pretty much the same.
Never seen a frog with so many different common names!
Mine are in a 10 gal. w/ a Hydroton & bark layer topped in places w/ long fiber sphagnum, some live pillow moss & a selaginella moss that's local. They still have places where they can & do back into little burrows & seem at home .
Feeding tiny crickets for now, will try other foods as well.
Thanks,
Michael

OK, here's the link to one of the female, at least.
http://i44.servimg.com/u/f44/12/64/46/10/422_or10.jpg
and this is of the one I think is a male, harder to see against the Hydroton red.
and http://i44.servimg.com/u/f44/12/64/46/10/dsc_0513.jpg
another of the female.
They don't like to pose often.
