    My favorite frogs belong to the family Pipidae...African and South American "aquatic frogs". They are easy to care for and fun to watch.

    Favorite:
    1. African Bullfrog (Pyxicephalus adspersus)
    2. Suriname Horned Frog (Ceratophrys cornuta)
    3. Glass Frog (Hyalinobatrachium fleischmanni)

    Why?
    Well, the African Bullfrog is first for me because of the overall size and look. Great personality, not much to taking care of these guys besides providing large quantities of food, big water source, and bedding. C. Cornuta comes second, appearance with elongated horns and especially green-phase makes these frogs truly amazing. Hard to acclimate and feed this species though, notorious for not eating when caught in the wild. The glass frog comes last; I'm not particularly into small tree frogs, but this species really tops the best. Translucent skin and visible organs makes me really interested in this species. That is my favorites in order.

    Mine are...

    My Ceratophrys cranwelli "Tank", because he's solid as a tank and he's a little eating machine . I love the little guy. He's an aggressive eater and fun to watch. He is not shy at all. I like the ornates and fantasy frogs also for their variations of colors and pattern designs.




    My second is Agalychnis callidryas because of their beautiful colors and agility. My babies are so smooth moving and cautious. I love their cute boggly eyes. Just like a puppy looking up at you. How could you resist to taking one home with those cute faces?

    This is my female, Stickers.

    The smaller one is my baby Bubbles.

    My third favorite are Bombina orientalis. I like them because they are energetic and love to swim, climb, and bounce around their homes. They are silly little critters. They have vibrant orange bellies and cute little brown eyes. Adorable. I do not currently have any pictures on my new phone of them because it was some time ago that I had them.
