Acquired: Pet store

My son got three albino African Clawed Frogs. We were told they were dwarf frogs, but that was incorrect, and we discovered this rather quickly. When we got them they were small, could fit in a five year old's palm, a year later, they were as big as my hand. Two of the were, one died shortly after we got them. The habitat was easy to create, they are aquatic so we had a fresh water tank with a temperature regulation system. They ate frog pellets and freeze dried shrimp and worms. They loved to swim around, especially at night. When my son fed them they would almost dance around at the top. One of them occasionally would hide in a fake log, but for the most part they were out and about and swam around. The little guys were hilarious to watch. They liked to "stand" on their back legs at the bottom of the tank so that it looked like a weird naked human standing up doing jumping jacks. They do eat other creatures, as my brother found out when he was watching them and put them with his fish to clean the tank. I told him not to and now he is a few fish short. They shouldn't be handled, but you can touch them if you take the precautions of making sure your hands are clean before and afterwards.
