Default African Clawed Frog Croaking

Hi! My African Clawed Frog has been croaking and calling a lot from underwater, but according to my parents, only when I am in the room. Is this a sign of a health issue or does he think I am a female frog for some reason? Heís grown fast, only an inch or two when I got him but now he is nearly the size of my palm 5 months later!

I'm no expert, but my guess is since they don't see well, he hears the vibration when people are walking in the room and thinks food may be coming. Have your parents stomp around in there without you and see what happens. If he doesn't react, then he is in love and you will have to marry him

Froggo is croaking more than ever before. 24/7. Should I try to get him a buddy? Also I am still curious, should I be worried about his black hands? He doesn’t mind it, but it looks like a ammonia burn. There was an ammonia spike a few weeks ago and his hands turned blacker. The problem has been resolved, there is no more ammonia, but his hands are still black. His appetite sure hasn’t diminished either, he’s getting enourmous, nearly 5 inches in length at this point.

It's calling for a mate. They do this often as adults but can be triggered by water changes of high pressure fronts. I can't say I have heard of them calling for food before.
Black hands and forearms are the signs of a sexually mature male, it's fine.

Interesting! I didnít know most of that. I had thought he was a male, but began to suspect female just because he is about 5 inches now and usually males are smaller.
Glad to hear it isnít ammonia burn!
He calls all the time, but it gets louder and more rapid and he starts jumping at the glass when people go by his tank.
