How can you tell if a southern toad is a boy or a girl.

With toads, the male is the one that can inflate its throat pouch and vocalize; females are basically silent. Also the males often have dark throats, especially during the breeding season; the female’s throat tends to be white. In addition to this, the females generally grow larger because the males ride piggyback on top of them during amplexus (the mating embrace).
