Aquatic Frogs

During college I kept an African dwarf clawed frog in my dorm. He lived for about three years.

There's not too much I can say, as compared to my other reviews since you can't hold this animal or be able to determine it's temperament, etcetera.

Before acquiring one of these, I highly recommend that you research their care a bit and decide what type of setup that you want. I used a 1 gallon tank with an air pump with gravel, a small light, and some soft aquatic plants (like anacharis). Cleaning was a bit difficult at first because you can't remove him from his habitat, but I got used to it and developed a system and was careful about how much water I took out. The water that was added was treated to remove the chlorine and make it safe for him.

They are entertaining little creatures and I think they are a good pet for children under 8 with parental supervision (and the parents doing the feeding and cleaning). Definitely a good pet for responsible college students as well.
