I was in Petsmart the other day buying fish food and I spotted a light pigmented African Dwarf Frog (Hymenochirus boettgeri) in the live fish section. (I always checkout the frogs. Laughing ) He didn't appear sick or unhealthy and was quite active. Since I've never seen an ADF this shade before, I decided to get him. I assume it's a he based on size, although it could be a young female. I'm not sure if the light coloration is a result his previous environment and diet or just genetics.

Yes, they're rather small, usually 2-4cm snout to vent. A 5cm individual would be large indeed.
