My husband purchased a baby african dwarf frog, completely aquatic, and placed it in our aquarium with our three goldfish. Within a few hours, we noticed that one of the frog's feet was gone! And with observation, noticed that when the frog would swim up to the surface of the water, the goldfish would get interested in him, probably thinking "lunch!" and would start nipping at him. I have no doubt that one of the goldfish ate his foot. I feel terrible. I've since placed him in his own tank, hoping he recovers and doesn't die. I've heard that some amphibians can grow limbs back? Can anybody confirm if frogs can grow back their limbs, or in this case, their feet?
Thank you very much for any information!
