Sale price$5.99


The African dwarf frog (Hymenochirus sp.) is a charming aquatic amphibian native to the freshwater habitats of central and west Africa. With its petite size and endearing appearance, it has become a beloved choice for aquatic enthusiasts and hobbyists alike.

Measuring only about 1 to 1.5 inches (2.5 to 4 centimeters) in length, these tiny frogs possess a streamlined body adorned with smooth, moist skin. Their limbs are short and delicate, equipped with webbed feet ideal for graceful movement in water. Their skin can come in various shades, ranging from olive green to brown, providing excellent camouflage amidst aquatic plants and substrate.

One of their most captivating features is their expressive eyes, which protrude slightly from their heads, providing keen vision above and below the water's surface. These eyes, along with their lateral line system, help them detect motion and locate prey efficiently in their aquatic environment.

African dwarf frogs are predominantly nocturnal, exhibiting heightened activity during the evening and nighttime hours. They are peaceful and sociable creatures, often found in small groups in the wild and thriving in communal setups in captivity. Their gentle nature makes them suitable companions for a variety of aquatic tank mates, including small fish and invertebrates.

Feeding primarily on small aquatic invertebrates, such as worms, insects, and crustaceans, in the wild, they readily adapt to a captive diet of commercial frog pellets, freeze-dried or live bloodworms, brine shrimp, and other protein-rich foods.

Due to their aquatic lifestyle, African dwarf frogs require an aquarium setup with ample swimming space, as well as aquatic plants and hiding spots to mimic their natural habitat. They are sensitive to water quality, necessitating regular maintenance and monitoring of tank parameters to ensure their well-being.

With proper care and a suitable environment, African dwarf frogs can live for several years, bringing joy and fascination to their keepers with their adorable antics and aquatic charm.
