Acquired: Breeder (non-professional, hobby breeder)

Of all my exotic animals, I love Kip the most! Kip lives with his two friends in a plastic transparent tank that I constructed for them when I first got them from a neighbor who breeds the frogs as a hobby.
Kip is the most active of the three. I love how he darts across the tank especially when he see someone. I have place three medium sized rocks in the tank that the frogs uses to hide away and also to step on as they come up to breath.
I enjoy feeding them on small insects like grasshoppers and crickets, and worms. It is more fun because they have amazing appetites. I feed them by throwing the food into the tank after which I enjoy the spectacle of seeing them compete for the food. I usually spend some time after work to watch them as the excite the water with their sudden movements across the tank.
I enjoy get kip out of the tank and holding him in the hands once in a while. It is an incredible feeling because he remains in my hand until I release him back into the tank.
I had introduced some catfish in the tank but they did not appear to enjoy the company of the catfish. I would recommend the African Dwarf Clawed Frog to anyone who love the company of some amphibian friends. They are really cool pets!
