    Any thing I've ever read about this subject leads me to believe that this occurs when a Xenopus has suffered a stroke.

    Heart Attack: This may cause death, although if it doesn't symptoms will include - Lethargic behaviour, Not eating, Paler than usual skin, strange swimming stroke. Heart Attacks can be caused if the water is too warm, their heart rate is affected by their external surroundings. If it is cold then their heart rate will be slow, if it is hot their heart rate will be fast, if it's too hot the heart may not be able to take the strain

    Stroke: This is when blood flow to the brain is decreased due to a blocked vessel or burst small vessel. Symptoms of this may include Lethargic behaviour, not eating, unable to move back or front legs/arms, continuous trembling of a limb or unable to regulate balance in the water. Strokes can caused by stress caused by handling or movement of the tank, they can also be caused by feeding too much fatty foods like bacon fat etc., and temperature fluctuations can also be a cause.

    Very sad, I'm sorry.

    Looks like your frog is bloated , bring it to a vet before it dies,mine died because of that,or maybe you just overfed it and it became fat wait for a week if it doesnt get thinner then it's bloated
