Hi everyone!

Today I purchased another African Dwarf Clawed Frog( 2 actually). On the way home I didnt notice but shes kind of deformed. Her leg bones grow up. She can hardly swim and mostly pulls herself along the tank bottom. It takes all her might to get a breath at the water's surface. What should I do? Should I humanely cull her? Take her back to the pet store? Keep her? I have 4 other ADCF and they are very pushy over food. I really dont want to keep her and watch her starve if she cant fight for food. I need advice soon please!

I have decided to keep her. Shes so sweet and tame. If I returned her they might cull her and I cant do it myself. As long as the water is too deep and I hand feed her she'll probably live. BTW I have the frogs in a separate aquarium from the Moors.

I can't kill anything! Even 'pest' snails...

who I now keep as pets in their own home!

I think the ones that are not seen as good as the others are more loveable just for that reason! it's like the runt of a litter of any kind is always the most tentative because it doesn't get attention like the rest. Does that apply to frogs? :blink:

I love frogs, I have never kept any and wouldn't know how to. Although I did raise frogspawn when I was little! Does that count?

In the fishtank that was at my house when I was growing up, we had 2 albino frogs, the kind that stay underwater all the time. Well almost all the time.. they would go to the surface every now and then and get some air then DIVE back to the bottom smashing into the rocks everytime. You'd think they would have learned after a while...
