Members of this family live in many different watering holes including mucky swamps, small pools of water that dry up during part of the year, large ponds that are filled all year long, and slow-flowing rivers and streams. They rarely leave the water. If their pool dries up, they typically burrow into the still-wet muck at the bottom and wait for the rains to return.

I purchased three tadpoles two years ago from Grow A Frog. As they got bigger and were not the albino I thought I was getting I googled them and have thought all along that they are African Blackclawed Water Frogs, that is what they look like from the pictures I googled. The lady at GAF told me they are Pipidae, seems like the same difference to me. I now have over 50 tadpoles (GAF told me it would be very unlikely that I would ever be able to have eggs to tadpoles). I know they are not to be put out in the wild and I love the ones I have had for two years. I took the female out of the boys tank because there were so many eggs although she was eatint them. It has been a month and she is still laying eggs. How long before I can put her back with the boys? And are they Pipidae or A BC WF's?



Thanks
