African Dwarf Frogs are the same as African Dwarf Clawed Frogs. Just a different name. :) ADFs DO HAVE CLAWS. They are small, black nails and they are ony on the hind feet. They're used to aid in shedding.
Your frog is looking female. I say that because of her body shape and the thickness of her arms. Also, only males, sing, so if she is quiet than she is definitely a she. Tail length is not a very good determinant of gender in my experience. It may just be the line that I've worked with, but body shape and arm thickness are really the only indicators I've seen to be reliable. Males also get a small swollen gland in their armpits, but females occasionally have that too. In my mature females, I can also sometimes see eggs through the abdominal wall. :)
If you want a frog that will sing, the first thing necessary is that the frog is a male. Secondly, my male frog never sung until I added in my female frog. Some males will sing in the absence of females and it isn't uncommon for them to do so, but having a girl around (I think) makes them sing louder and more frequently. They also seem happier, although that may just be me anthropomorphizing.
I have pictures of both my adult male frog and my adult female frog, as well as some photos of their babies (that was an accident, who would have thought out of all the frogs I'd have the misfortune to get a mating pair? ...But I learned -_-) in my photo albums on my profile.
Anything else you need to know? :P
