3.2.1…. What is the sex of the dart frog?

In dart frog Facebook Groups, forums, and other places people use the following shorthand to tell others what the genders of the frogs are.  


The following are examples of posts that people have used the shorthand in. 



This is an image of text.  It says 1.2?  The poster is asking if the frogs they posted in the picture are 1 male and 2 females.  The writer used oow which means out of the water.


This is text where the poster is asking for help in determining the sex of their frogs.  The frogs are 18 months old and are dendrobates tinctorius peacock.  The seller claims that they are a possible 2.1 which is two males and one female.

This image is where someone stated that the habitat that is built is housing 1.2 dendrobates lecuomelas which is one male and two females.


male.female.undetermined


The numbers are referring to the sex of the frog.  Usually the numbers are written in groups of three.  Undetermined can also be juvenile and too young to determine the sex of the frog.  If there are only two numbers they are still written in the order of male.female.

In this example the poster is asking the group if the frogs that are in the picture are 1 male and 2 females.  The next part is they are 12 months out of the water (oow).  It is often easier to determine the sex of dart frogs once they are about a year old.  


This is an image of text.  The person is asking if they can have a group of dart frogs, 3.2 , which is 3 males and 2 females in a 150 gallon tank.


The poster on this example is looking for recommendations of species that they can keep a large group of dart frogs in.  They would like to keep 3 males and 2 females in the same tank.


This is an image of someone posting that the habitat they have houses 0.0.4 Capurgana which means they have 4 juveniles of dart frogs of undetermined sex.


This is a post where there are 0 males, 0 females and 4 juveniles/undetermined in the same habitat.
