I was wondering how things went with your trying to find some females. I lost the link and have been busy so haven't been able to post for awhile. ;)

Hiya LJean:

I can NOT find any females to save my life. They have to be fairly large in order to determine whether or not they are females; otherwise, they ALL look like males. All I can find is teeny tiny to almost there sizes. I'm at my wits end. And, my boys aren't too happy either.

OK, the person that does this website might be able to help you. Just send them an email, tell them you are looking for two females but you have no intent to breed (you don't, do you?) and they might be able to help you.

I would love to send them an E-Mail; but, I don't know who they are. And, NO, I have no intention of breeding. Just looking out for the needs of my boys.

they are a great predator but not one that should be kept with fish, or anything else you prize.

btw Xenopus means strange food, a reference to their eating habits.
hmmm i have one of those and i keep it with my turtle...surprisingly and i have no damn clue why but they get along!!! O.O and yes they do eat alot ._. it ate my tadpole!! i pulled it out of his mouth and then he swallowed it back in ._. i was mad...

Escapee

Hello All........

I have to share this w/you. This morning (4am), I was doing my every morning routine before work and went to refresh the dogs water bowls and found one of my african clawed frogs in the bowl. Neither one of them has ever escaped before and I'm thinking that the only reason George did was because I am in the process of converting from gravel to sand and the 3 heavy ground plants that I have are at the moment floating. And, my fat little friend used them as a launching point. I can't believe that he survived. He not only had to get down from an extremely high point to the floor; but, then, get across the living room and dining room and FIND the water dish and jump in.
Has anyone ever heard of anything like that?

Lisa

Yup. I've heard of one getting dried out but as they were finding a box to bury it one of them saw the nose twitch just a tiny bit. They stuck it back in the tank, it dehydrated and recovered just fine.

Moral of the story: Do not leave a single inch available for them to get out!!!!
