    Yes, there is a species of frog called the African Clawed Frog. It has three claws on each of its hind feet, which is probably uses to stir up mud to hide itself from predators.

    The frog is aquatic and grows up to about 5 inches long. It is found throughout most of Africa and in small populations in various places in North America, Europe, and South America.

    There are a few remote and isolated species of frogs that have evolved claws. These are not the type of claws used by carnivores for tearing through flesh, but rather used as anchors to stay firmly planted on trees and vegetation. One such example is the African Clawed Frog. Found in the dense jungles of Central Africa, they are a common frog that is sometimes sold as pets in the US.
