    They drop their tails easily unfortunately, its name is Senor Stumpy.

    Maybe "Forest Stump"?

    Forrest. ? Looking at that pathetic dangle of a tail he had, he's better off without it. Come to think of it, Quasimodo the empennage challenged does come to mind.

    He runs pretty fast, though. :D And his tail is NOT pathetic! Just non-existent.

    This species does not regrow dropped tails. He's gonna be a frog-butt for life.

    Should be big enough to sex, by the way. Any manly bulges between the back legs?

    yeah, I knew they don't regenerate. I kinda think it adds to its charm. Though I'd still prefer that it had kept the taol.

    Yannoe, I've never bothered to take a look in the direction of sexing it. I hope it is a male.

    I got a ventral shot, but I'm unsure if it is good enough for the purpose of sexing. I don't see any femoral pores, myself, so it may be a female.
    Of more interest to me at the moment are those "spurs" on either side of the vent. Normal?

    The cloacal spurs are normal, yeah. Looks female to me, but the pores are very small in this species and if it’s a male the bulge will be very obvious as it gets older. Other people will be better at this than me, though.

    I'd say female. I got what turned out to be a male a month before you started this. He is noticably male too, the punk spreads out on the front glass regularly :hilarious: So comparing the two I'd say you have a little girl.

    I'm inclined to agree. I'd prefer a male, but really either way is fine with me.

    You shouldn't breed it anyway--the babies will have stumps for tails!

    And what is wrong with stump-tails? Tsk. Prejudice is such an ugly thing.

    Looks to me like this little girl landed in high cotton when she caught your attention.

    Well, I guess she is doing alright, considering I'd never kept one before and had to do research nearly spontaneously. :)
