If wild frogs they are protected so itís illegal and there is a hefty fine.

Not all frogs are protected.
Wild or not its illegal in the UK to see nd live vertebrates through the public postal system.
You can only do it using a DEFRA licenced livestock courier. Generally you are looking at around £35.

Tarantulas & other inverts are usually posted. But vertebrates have to be couriered.
