  1. The frogs are well . I was wondering though. Do they get their pads AT sexual maturity or BEFORE it? They're getting bigger now but i dont know how to determine how old they are or anything.
  2. they are about 1 inch, the albino isn't showing any signs of a nuptial pad. My 'wild' type's hands look black... Are the hands supposed to be lighter colored like the rest if the underbelly?
  3. I figured it out, they both just fat lol. They both are active and eating, so i'l presume they are healthy. I detoxed the tank before they went on with baking soda and water, just in case jeremiah had a disease. It's proving to be quite difficult to sex them though because one of the is almost black and the other is albino, Do albino's develop black nuptial pads too?
  4. Hey you posted on my thread about my frog changing colors and what not. Unfortunately he passed away yesterday. I cleaned out the tank and got new frogs today i was wondering about on, there about 1.5 inches (fro the store, so they're little) One of them has a bigger belly. Is it just fatter than the other or is it possible that its just a female? Just hoping its not the bloating disease ya know..
  5. Congrats new Moderator!!

African Bullfrog Identification Guide

by tgampper on January 4th, 2013 at 12:20 PM
Hi fellow froggers:

Over the last few months, I have noticed there was considerable confusion over which species of African bullfrog that you are keeping. I have prepared a guide, along with generous support of Frog Forum members and scientists is South Africa, that may help in resolving some of the problems. It is considered a work in progress and I hope to add to it as new information becomes available. The file is in PDF format and available at my Xenopus in Gopherspace web site
