Breeding question

Postby Didiman » Fri Dec 02, 2005 9:45 pm

I am just wondering if frogs from the same spawn are able to breed with each other? The reason i ask is that i have recently obtained three tadpoles (presumably from the same spawn) and hoping that they will breed one day if thats possible.

I know with reptiles (lizards/snakes) you can for at least a couple of generations without any known problems. I would presume that wild frog siblings do as well, but have no proof or other info. Will post again if I find out anything.
