    Smile African Dwarf Frogs! - pic heavy

    Well, since I don't have a gecko yet, I have to talk about frogs. >_>

    These are my current loves (along with my betta, of course). They've been with me for about a year and a half, two years next January. c: I currently have four ADFs, Dorkus, Sporkus, Von Munch (Baron) and Bubbles. Munchie and Bubbles are both runts I raised from an unintentional spawning of Dork and Spork (just my luck that the guy would fish out a male and a female). There were initially 12 froglets, and for a while I had a total of fourteen frogs in my house, but the others have been safely adopted and now it's just these little sweeties with me.

    Dorkus - when I first got him ----> now




    Sporkus - Then ----> now



    THE BABBYS



    And Baron. Needs updated photo - he/she is much bigger now. This is from when he/she was just a month or two old.


    Raising ADF tads is hard work.

    Anyway, if anyone here owns ADFs, post your photos!!

    Those are so cute.
    I don't think I've ever seen them that small. Good luck with them

    Oh, well, the babies are all grown up now. c: The new owner of six of them sent me photos yesterday and goodness have they shot off. They're practically adult sized!

    Thanks!

    I love ADFs and their froggy yoga moves.


    Yours are really cute, it's nice to see chubby ones - these guys are often far too skinny. And the babies were ADORABLE!!!

    Awww! Your camera's way better than mine. :P

    Yeah, many people don't take care of their ADFs properly. Mine get nice and fat on HBH and bloodworms. c: Yours are really healthy looking, too - it's interesting, though, they have a different facial structure than mine do. On my frogs the nostrils are much closer together. I know there are different species, maybe we have two different ones? c:

    I noticed the difference too - their body shapes seem to be slightly different as well.

    And old and not very detailed site (but still interesting) - http://aquaticfrogs.tripod.com/id19.html mentions 4 species. I'll bet ours are both a mix of species, just stronger characteristics from one or the other. Intriguing!

    How old are yours? I only have one now, but she is something like 7 years old.

    Wow, seven!

    Mine have been with me for almost two years now, I'm not sure how old they were when I got them but they were both sexually mature adults. Judging on the growth rate of my baby frogs, that would have put them at or over one year old... so they must be about three now.

    Cool link, I'll check it out. I've only ever heard of three species - boettgeri, curtipes, and one other....
