African clawed frogs (Xenopus) are illegal in CA. I seen tropical clawed frogs (Silurana) once at a pet store, not entirely sure if those are legal. The best you can do is find dwarf clawed frogs (Hymenochirus), those are pretty easy to obtain. BTW African clawed frogs has been introduced and established into SoCals waterways, hence why they are illegal in some states. I've been told they are pretty common down there.

Do you know when they were made illegal in CA? I remember having one about 5 years ago.

Also. Not that I condone it or anything, but you can always look online for these kinds of things.
For example I have order some Red Bellies from http://www.Aquascapeonline.com They might even have the frog you are looking for.
