– Nasco has expanded its Xenopus colony!

Nasco has out-bred Nigerian Xenopus tropicalis frogs. These are from University of VA stock.

Nasco can also ship surgically extracted frog ovaries for your convenience.
We will ship them on wet ice, in insulated cartons, via Next Day Air

See Xenopus frog chart for details.
Why risk your valuable research on wild-caught frogs of unknown origin? Such frogs could be of uncertain age, diet, and exposed to environmental pollutants or parasites.

All Nasco Xenopus have been lab-bred in our Wisconsin facility under stringent care. These are vigorous animals selected for premium reproductive capacity and are raised exclusively on our custom frog diet, Nasco's Frog Brittle.
  • All Nasco Xenopus are lab-bred animals.
  • None are captured from the wild.
  • Good supplies of pigmented Xenopus are available for immediate shipment!
Nasco has over 60 years experience providing living specimens worldwide for education and research.
