Default Albino common frogs

I have some metamorphosing common frogs in my pond, some of which appear to be amelanistic. Thought people might like to see, I think they're illegal to trade unfortunately.

I've seen ONE in the wild, looks awesome.

Could always hide a couple back, grab a adult or 2 from elsewhere and keep them captive for next season, could be a nice breeding project. As much as people hate it, it's legal and it's no different to any other WC animal, it just doesn't come from a foreign country with a price tag.

You're allowed to sell the offspring if they were to produce, providing you prove they're CB. Pictures of the parents and clutches when laid should cut it I reckon?

I know I'd definitely have a pair if you were to go ahead with it, Rana Temporaria(sp?) are highly under rated purely because its native.

Reddevil(?) is the one to talk to, he's kept a few. I housed two fresh froglets in a 30cm square for a bit. Not sure on adults though.

There is a way of selling them as ADULTS, but you CANNOT sell them;
Quote:

a. between 15 January and 15 April (inclusive of those dates), in any year; and
b. at any time, as respects specimens taken from the wild between 15 January and 15 April
(inclusive of those dates) in any year.

It's good that you have some albinos though.. As they'd probably wouldn't last very long in the wild... Plus it would be a good indication of captive bred/raised stock??

I'm not too sure on the law, but being able to sell CB may be right. However I don't have the time to raise these.
