TROGDOR THE BURNANATOR by Neko--Chana TROGDOR THE BURNANATOR by Neko--Chana
TROGDOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOORRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!!!

Thank you strongbad for this epic name!!

This is Trogdor-- he is my wonderful African Clawed Frog (for you aquarium hobbyists out there, my 'ACF')

He IS the most awesomest thing I've ever kept in a fish tank. Period.

Here's why;

1) He's albino (so we relate with the whole pasty thing >..<)
2) He only has three legs. (which handicaps him from growing any larger, because the fourth leg grew inside his body.)
3) He's Hilarious! He always makes my day, I mean just look at his smug smile in this picture!
4) His best friend is a dragon goby named Maelstrom (meaning "whirlpool" in the olden days)
5) I tend to look at him and scream "TROGDOOOORR!!" in my head.


*R.I.P as of July 3, 2011*

Axolotls are definitely one of my favorite creatures. The ACF, too, now that I know they exist! :)

He passed about a year and a half ago. (he was only 2 when it happened) He didn't live too long because he had a defect-- one of his arms grew inside him so it stunted his growth and I think it killed him cuz it kept growing inside him. (not gonna say aliens, but ALIENS.)

One of my friends has several though and she says one of them is 18, so hey usually live a pretty dern long time!

Yea! He had one arm inside his tummy (so it looked like it was missing) and a bug eye ^_^ but I lerved him. <3

Strange- they live in the um.. bad conditions

well hey, if it's working for them why change it? Maybe they like their environment the way it is and that's why they've lived so long. I think maybe I cleaned my tank too much! >_< that probably didn't help my frog out at all, I know they're finicky to any change in their environments.

Umm... at first they lived in by granddad's flat, and the tiny aquarium looked like marsh :omg: and they were eating spoiled food. Anyway, they survived! In their age of 5-6 I took them to me. Conditions turned a bit better, they were even mating and singing in the night! Yeah, clawed frogs are enough fragile... But they don't mind cold water and poor light :)

wow I've never seen a frog quite like that O,o he's very cute X3
My sisters used to take care of frogs that they would find around the neighborhood. We had this huge tank but one day when we were cleaning it outside right after we finished our cross eyed cat came and ran into the tank....breaking it and letting all of the frogs out XD

Thanks! He's an aquatic frog. They sell themfrom time to time at the pet stores

Word of advice: They are NOT rare African Dwarf Frogs (which only get to be the size of arond an inch [including legs])

ACL (African Clawed frogs can become the size of a man's palm, or even bigger, and can live for 20+ years. Don't let the pet sotres lie to you!!)

I got lucky with Trogdor, he's deformed so he can't get any bigger.

OMG-- you have a cross-eyed cat? Is is siamese?

I see O,o I don't think I've ever seen any frogs in the two pet stores near where I live XD only toads. Then again, I don't exactly go into pet stores a lot since I'm pretty animal phobic ^^;

He was a tabby xD but my older sister said he might have been part Siamese, we never really know with our cats lol

noooooooo!!! Don't be animal-phobic! *gasp*

and true-- my grandparents live out in the boonies, so cats are dumped on their property ALL the time, and I swear you can see every sort of cat there is (now, none of them are full-blooded, but the pattens and personalities of the breed seem to show up oddly. >.<)

XD I've been scared of animals basically for as long as I can remember. I was bitten by dogs a lot as a very young child ^^; I can still enjoy them from a distance though 8D

I think we get most of our cats (we have three now O,o) from our cousins who have a farm XD They get a lot of kittens : )
