When you hear the word “pixie”, the first thing that comes to mind is probably a tiny, fairy-like creature with wings, making magic and causing mischief — not a giant bullfrog. The African Bullfrog, pictured here, is also known as a Pixie Frog and it gets its common name from its scientific name, Pyxicephalus adspersus.
This frog is brand new to The Animal Store and is already bigger than a baseball. Young Pixies are bright green in color, but they become duller as they age, and adult males have a yellow/orange neck, while the females will have a creamy white one. These animals are native to sub-Saharan Africa and are the second largest amphibian in the world. Adult males can grow to nine inches long and weigh more than four pounds. They have been known to live as long as 40 years.
