Xenopus laevis, the African clawed frog is originally from southern Africa. It inhabits shallow ponds or lakes with warm, stagnant water. This amphibian is entirely aquatic with olive-brown to grayish-black dorsal coloration. Always treat live organisms with respect and proper care. For student and frog safety, minimal handling is recommended. Do not release any animals into the wild.
