How do I sex Solomon Island Leaf Frogs?

Ceratobatrachus guentheri are never easily sexable. Both sexes may call, although males will call more often. Males may call as young as 4-5 months. Visually, SILFs are not sexable until 10-12 months of age. Male Solomon Island Leaf Frogs tend to be smaller than females, which often appear both longer and wider. Males may have 2 visible white lines running parallel on their body - some literature suggests this may be the frog's ureters. Breeding conditioned females may have visible eggs when their belly is examined. Josh's Frogs sells 2-3 month old juveniles that are not sexable unless otherwise noted.
