Product Overview

African dwarf frogs live their entire lives underwater, but need to rise to the surface to breathe air because they have lungs and not gills. These frogs are small in size and do not weigh more than a few grams. These frogs vary in color, for the most part ranging from olive green to brown with black spots. The average life expectancy of these frogs is 5 years, but they can live as long as 20 and grow to 2½ inches long. When young, African dwarf frogs can be mistaken and sold as African clawed frogs, African frogs of the genus Xenopus, which are larger and more aggressive than the dwarf.

    The African dwarf frog I got from APB a few weeks ago is happy, healthy, and entertaining. She was freaked out by the fish for the first day or so, but now she will just shove them out of her way to get where she's going.

    She did eat a guppy fry, so if you have excess guppies, you may want to consider frogs to help you keep the population down.

    If you add one of these to your tank, be sure that the lid is secure and has no frog-sized gaps to escape through. We lost a previous frog that way, so I used plastic craft mesh to block the excess space in the top around the air line and power cords before adding this one.
