The African Clawed Frog is well known because it has been used as a laboratory animal and kept as a pet. Although they are native to southern Africa, they have been introduced to many areas of the world. This frog has a flattened body and wedge-shaped head, and webbed feet which are suitable for its aquatic lifestyle. They can be found in streams and warm, stagnant ponds in arid and semi-arid regions. They are hardy and long-lived, some captive individuals living for more than 20 years. This is a 3-D printed, hand-painted model.
