My juvenile African Clawed Frog made a break for it at cleaning....
 
As I was cleaning my ACFs tank today my frog made a break for it. He fell a good two feel and was out of the water for at least 15 minutes as I tried to get my arm under my nightstand to catch him. I was just curious if he was going to be okay. He's acting normal so I'm not too worried but I just need reasurance. He's been a full frog for about four months now and is three and a half inches in size from head to toe when stretched out. I hope he'll be okay.

Sincerely,
British

My newphew had one that managed to escape 3 times. Once he was out for about 1/2 hour or so (best guess) with no sign of trauma afterwards.

Frisky little buggers aren't they?

Yes, they are. I was just worried. He's all I have right now. I also noticed him last night (this is a DARK brown and spotted frog) and he was silver; almost completely white. When I turned on the light and touched him he slowly colored up. Is this something I should be worrying about?

I wouldn't worry yet. He was probably just stressed out from the jump. Just keep an eye on him and post another message if he doesn't come around.

Good luck.

Thank you so much. I just love my little frog and don't want anything to happen to him.
