African dwarf frogs are not semi-terrestrial, so they live their
entire lives underwater, but need to rise to the surface to breathe
air because they have lungs and not gills. These frogs are small in
size and do not weigh more than a few grams. They vary in color,
for the most part ranging from olive green to brown with black
spots. The average life expectancy of these frogs is five years,
but they can live as long as 20 years; they can grow to 6.35
centimeters (2.5 inches) long. When young, African dwarf frogs can
be mistaken and sold as African clawed frogs, African frogs of the
genus Xenopus, which are larger and more aggressive than the dwarf.
All species of Pipidae are tongueless, toothless and completely
aquatic. They use their webbed feet to shove food in their mouths
and down their throats, and a hyobranchial pump to draw or suck
food into their mouths. Scroll up... and click on "Buy Now" to
