Fred, the Pet of the Day
Name: Fred
Age: Five years old
Gender: Female
Kind: African Clawed Frog
Home: Minnesota, USA
   This is Fred, an African clawed frog. Fred was bought from a pet store in Minnesota five years ago as a very small dwarf frog. But Fred grew (and turned out to be a she)! After Fred was over three inches long and tried to swallow her tankmate we realized that Fred was not really a dwarf at all.

    Fred, being a frog, is very useful during housefly season. Fred and others like her can supposedly live for 20 years or more and we're glad to have her in our family.
