    Default Pixie frogs giant or dwarf

    Hello bull frog lovers I have a few questions regarding my giant african bullfrog. I bought them yesterday and they are about 3 inches long from butt to nose. I bought them at a store and it was labeled 10/13 or something like that. So I ask what is that the date of birth. He replied no thats the date we brought them into the store. Now makes me wonder if these are the dwarf pixie frogs. I have another pixie frog and in two weeks he doubled in size. He was like an inch or so. So the store owner had them for 6 months? I really hope its the giant and not dwarf but anyhow here are some pictures
    Pixie #1



    Pixie #2



    I just got them yesterday only snapped a few pictures. They were eating machines already. Fed them a couple of dozen crickets. Very active exploring in their new home. Love them!

    Ok that's what I thought. Store owner told me he had a giant and it actually turned out to be a dwarf. From what I see giants had a stripe going down the mid and have spots. He told me it was a giant from the sound of his voice it didnt sound so confident. Thanks for replying!

    Pet Shops are known to underfeed animals IOT lower maintenance costs and keep animals small and cute for as long as possible. 3 in. SVL for a 6 mo. old GABF in a shop is probably within average. Both of yours look like giants, specially no. 2 .
    Remember to take care of the enclosure and it will take care of your frog !​

    Yup no 2 is shy but no 1 has a great personality! He would come out of his hide when I turn on his red basking lamp and sits and watch me while im on my laptop. Great eater too! Ive only been a gabf owner for less then a month and really dig these guys.

    Be careful bathing the smaller one with those other two. They may try to eat it.

    I know thanks for heads up. They are well fed and I supervised. They are shy eating in front of me or perfer to be fed in their enclosure.
