Clawed Versus Dwarf

Can you spot the difference?

If you've ever had an African Dwarf Frog as a pet, you know how cute they are, and you know how easy it is to care for this species. But did you know that they are often confused as African clawed frogs? If you want to make sure you have a true Dwarf frog, check for differences like these...

Front and back webbed feet. While the clawed frog has digits on two limbs, the dwarf variety has all webbed feet.

Eyes should be on the sides of the head, looking out left and right. Clawed frogs, on the other hand, are always looking up, as their eyes are on top of their heads.

Have you ever had either of these species as a pet?
