 Sexing Bombina Bombina (European Fire Bellied Toad)

I am going to get a Fire Bellied toad because i want to breed them but i want to make sure that i get 1 male and 1 female. I’ve heard that the male makes noises and they have the pads on their toes but are there other ways that i can sex them?

I doubt it... the sexes basically look alike, even the pads on the toes only appear at breeding time. I suggest you get a larger group of them to increase the probability of having both.

No, I kept 2 of them for a long time which I think were a pair, but they never bred... however I hear that if you keep a group of them, they are more stimulated to breed.
