    I saw some of these guys in a Zimbabwe fish shop while i was there... i love how freaky they look. Because i WANTED some badly back in the day, i did some emailing and found that they are outlawed here in SA. The only examples i could find in SA was in Bloemfontein at an amphibian exhibit.

    They should ask all the home breeders worldwide to breed them and we could rebuild the population
