The Albino African Clawed Frog is one of the most unusual looking aquatic frogs you can own yet in its own way it is extremely cute. These frogs are extremely docile, non-venomous or toxic, and very inactive unless startled. You can find their food (meal worms, snails without the shell, little dehydrated shrimp, bloodworms, etc) at pretty much any pet store. These frogs can be, and should be, hand fed. This is very easy. All you have to do is hold the food you are trying to feed them in front of their mouths under water. This type of pet is great for someone who is looking for an easy to care for, unique, uncommon pet that can sit inside a tank on a shelf or desk and look good! This type of frog is happiest when it has a companion or two of similar size in the same tank. It is recommended that you have approximately 5 gallons of water per frog for them to be at the healthiest and happiest. These frogs are exclusively fresh water frogs and require either distilled or purified water. If you use regular tap water, you will more than likely kill the frog as there is usually a high level of compounds that are very toxic to these animals present in regular tap water. These frogs are very sensitive to their environment and MUST be left in the water. If they manage to jump out while you are changing their water, they can survive but not for long. Also, they are extremely slippery and difficult to grab a hold of should they get out. It is important to keep a lid, a low power electric filter, and a gentle light that wont heat the water.
