Not Xenopus laevis?

I recently took in two small male clawed frogs from a shelter, and thought they might be something other than X. laevis. They are very small males, the smallest I've ever seen for adults (13 years old!) and have FOUR claws on each hind foot - looks like there's an extra claw on the back "heel", because they have two plain toes and three clawed toes on each foot as normal, but then there's an extra claw on the back of the hind foot. Both of the frogs have it, and since they are so small, I was wondering if they might be a different species of Xenopus. Anyone have any ideas?
