It's hard to tell from the photos. Look at the front feet. If there is webbing between the toes it's a dwarf. If there's no webbing it's a clawed - and you'll need a separate tank before it grows big enough to eat the fish.

Hi I had a look at all of his toes and they are webbed arms and legs? Idk what to call them 😂 I’ll attach a photo just to double check.

That's an African dwarf frog. These stay small and won't eat your fish :)


Many stores can't tell the difference and use whichever name, dwarf or clawed, they feel like using. It comes as a nasty shock when what were labelled as dwarf frogs turn out to be the fish eating clawed :(. The other way round isn't nearly as bad.
