How Much Is That Froggy in the Window?

"I'm getting a frog for my birthday," a young girl declared to me.
"Oh, what kind of frog?" I ask.
"I'm not sure but it is from the tropics."
"Why are you getting a frog?"
"I think they're neat. I saw them at the pet store and my Dad said I could have one."


The first thing to consider about frogs is that they are wild animals. Frogs and other exotic pets such as snakes, lizards, scorpions, arachnids, etc., have not been domesticated and in most cases, have been captured in the wild and shipped to pet stores. Most people recognize that wild animals should never be kept as pets, but many do not make the connection that the exotic animals they see in pet shops are in fact wild animals.
