African Dwarf Frogs are a great addition to a community aquarium. They are unique, adorable, and peaceful. These frogs will get along great with the other animals in your fish tank.
An Overview of African Dwarf Frogs
African Dwarf Frogs are nocturnal, and you will usually find them active during the night.
There are four species of African Dwarf Frogs. They don’t look very different; the four different species of African Dwarf Frogs simply come from four different native locations spread throughout Africa.
- The Hymenochirus boettgeri can be found in Gabon, Nigeria, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Equatorial Guinea, Cameroon, and the Central African Republic. It is the most common African Dwarf Frog and has the largest native environment of the four species of dwarf frogs.
- The Hymenochirus boulengari is found in the northeast part of the Democratic Republic of the Congo.
- The Hymenochirus curtipes is also only found in the Democratic Republic of the Congo.
- The Hymenochirus feae is only found in Gabon.
African Dwarf Frogs are incredibly small (and also incredibly adorable). They don’t get larger than 3 inches long and only weigh a few ounces.
