At some point in the far future, another massive lake opens up along the great rift valley system in East Africa. Among the first creatures to colonize this virgin habitat are the wholly aquatic clawed frogs. They become adapted to a midwater existence, developing large hind feet, stabilizing/gas exchanging fins along their flanks, a fusiform body and tiny front limbs to capture and manipulate food. These frogs feed on small cichlids, and are the top predators in parts of the lake.

Probably about hand-sized, the same as modern African clawed frogs.

I really like this one! :w00t: Am I seeing front-legs on the head:?

Thanks! The front legs are indeed very close to the head, but not actually attached to the skull.

Awesome!
It would be cool to draw a picture of them even further in the future.
The fins could become more Diplocaulus-like and the arms could form mandibles.

I was thinking about taking it to that extent, but I wanted to keep it more "believable". After all, those great lakes won't last very long.
