When I was approximately ten years old my grandmother bought me the Grow-a-Frog kit, thinking that shortly after I grew a frog from a tadpolesI’d be out of my frog phase. Little did she know that after I grew my first frog, which was an aquatic African Clawed Frog named Freddie, that I would believe he was lonely, and grow a second one, Eddie. ( I was ten, not creative.) She also thought the poor boys would die within the year. To my delight Freddie lived to the ripe old age of eight, and Eddie went on to be ten. Both had translucent skin and grew to be about the size of my palm. For a youngster, they were great fun to watch, and as a teen an interesting addition of my family to show off to friends. There maintenance was liken to that of any aquatic creatures, lots of filter changes and rock cleanings. Generally though, an easy and amusing pet.
