kinzo Pretty sure it's a BIG negative on that...can you say Coqui? Well, maybe they aren't quite as obnoxious. But you never know!

zsxking I am doing research on this and it seems african dwarf frog is not prohibited.
It lists [ Xenopus laevis frog, African clawed ]. But in the same doc there is no Hymenochirus sp. ( African Dwarf Frog )

Fuj thanks for the lists. it seems that it might not be allowed here. I went to a few of the better pet stores and petco and they all said that they cant import them. if there is a local breeder then i could get from them. Kalihi says they have had some African clawed frogs on occasion hiding in the plants they get, but only by accident.

I would like one but it dosnet look like its gonna happen.

James4226c If you can find the scientific name of the frog you can read this:

and try to find it on this list:

if it isn't on the lists I shouldn's see why you wouldn't be able to own them
