I really want one

Do you have a question about anatomy, life cycle, taxonomy, or anything else that isn't covered by the other frogs.org.au projects? Ask them here (or provide an answer to other people's questions).

Is there anyway I can get a turtle frog?
I'm obsessed.


I am in VIC and they are in WA.
Can you even get them as pets?

They are listed as LC, so they aren't as protected as vulnerable or endangered species. However, I don't think they are on the pet trade, so it would be illegal to aquire them. They would also be hard to care for, unless you want to raise termites in your house. :D
