I could be wrong but I think That's just an African clawed frog and I don't think anything is wrong with it. But if it was labeled as pink frog then they aren't very educated in the stock they get into the store

Awwwwh.... :(

I hope my LFS doesn't get this. I know the manager hates glo fish, and they were avoiding selling them for so long, but apparently a LOT of people were asking for them so they finally caved in and carried glo fish products.

Poor frog! It's hard to tell from the shot. I hope he was born that way. . .and not tortured to get there. :/
I didn't realize they were dying/modifying clawed frogs now, but I know it is somewhat common with the African Dwarfs. And needs to stop!

Thanks for the information, Sandy!
