  1. Good afterooon, I was wondering if i could use your image of the PAnamanian golden frog for a science projec. I’m in Balboa Academy and I need the image for my project of “Go Wild with Jane Goodall” I would really appreciate if you could answer before Monday SEptember 30 2013. Thank you for your time.

  2. I would like to use your image of frogs and how they are used medicinally in my PowerPoint for FrogWatchUSA training. I saw it on the “Save the Frogs” website.


  3. We have a frog we no longer want but don’t want to release into a stream- any ideas what to do? Not sure of the type- it was a grow a frog kit where they sent a tadpole & it turns into a frog – that was @6 years ago – the kids aren’t interested anymore & we feel bad for this frog:( can you direct us on what to do?
    Thank you

  4. Dear Kevin:

    Please do not release this animal. This could be a potentially harmful invasive amphibian species, like Xenopus that could have very bad effects on native frogs if released. It also may harbor diseases that don’t harm your pet, but may harm wild frogs. We would suggest advertising to re-home the animal, keeping it for its whole life or by humanely euthanizing it. Here is a great resource developed by the Amphibian Ark for pet owners
