Not so handsome male!! Usually most of the frog species doesn&#039;t have much difference between a male and a female. The only common difference is the size. The males are smaller and the females are larger. There are few species in which the males change colors during breeding season. They become brightly colored. While the females remain as is! Only in few frog species a male and female can be differentiated not by its size but Other features. One such frog is Raorchestes sigantus in which the males doesn&#039;t have the signature feature of this species - radiating eyes<br />
