    Apart from Kermit and Robin, there are some other genetic frogs that appear from time to time. To me, they all look quite male. What do you think?

    Genetic frogs? :laugh:

    But to answer, I think it varies for me, mostly depending on color and sometimes eye focus. To give you an example:

    In this photo, I assume the 2 in the back to be male, and then in the front row, going from left to right, male, female, male, male, female.

    My reasons for the female ones are pretty vague...for the first one, I think it's due to the body and neck shape, and the second would be due to the coloring. Mouths also play a big part in my decision, for example the third frog in the front row would be female if it wasn't for mouth shape that tells me otherwise. It's weird how I associate gender with shape and color, but I do for some reason.

    Yeah, I have no idea how to tell the difference between male and female frogs. Perhaps they could have stuck some hair on the female ones.

    That's a good question but for some reason, I've always assumed those frogs on the picture are all male. Don't know why but I just do... It would be easier perhaps to tell male and female frogs apart if the females would wear bows on their heads or other accessories or if they, like charlietheowl said, had hair.

    I always assumed they were GENERIC and no one really thought of giving them a specific gender. So they all just look male *shrugs*

    Though some frogs can be specifically picked out as female, ones that have eyelids of sort that give them a female look to them.

    I assume that generic Muppet animals are male unless they're referred to as otherwise.

    That's easy. Female frogs wear female wigs.

    I think that Frogs, like Fraggles, are non-diamorphic, so until you hear the frog's voice you can't tell. Well, unless you're another frog.

    In that skit, the frogs all seemed to have male voices, so that's my vote.

    If you want a real head-scratcher, try to explain the frog with ears in The Muppets at Walt Disney World!

    Frogs with eyelids does look female

    Yes, I agree that the frogs in the skit were all male based on voice, but I was only using that pic as an example to show what I think in regards to design.

    Female frogs seem to have hair, like Jill or Mrs. Appleby.

    That is true...or is it a stereotype? Maybe some female frogs oppose having hair? :p

    On the other hand, I've seen male frogs with hair. And wasn't Kermit's mother bald in Kermit's Swamp Years?

    Some mail frogs actually have had hair, good point.

    (And I just realized I accidentally typed "mail" rather than "male," but I think it's too hilarious to fix...)

    It just hit me... Bill and Gil both have hair! Maybe it's a city vs. swamp thing. Frogs who live in the swamp are bald and don't wear clothes, but city frogs have both. Kermit and Robin, who've left the swamp, are probably still swamp frogs at heart, which is why they only wear clothes on special occasions.
    Hey, there could be mail frogs, as in frogs who deliver mail.

    Or maybe the swamp just happens to have scissors?

    And the city doesn't? :p
