Although the two look quite similar there are ways to tell them apart.- Dwarf frogs have eyes on the sides of their head and a smaller snout. Clawed frogs have eyes on the top of their head and a broader snout.- Dwarf frogs have 4 webbed feet they use for swimming and eating. Clawe frogs have individual fingers and long claws on their front legs for defence and eating.
