Bizarre. Morality regarding frog-keeping is different than morality sensu lato? I ain't buying that, not for a second.

This also implies that moral=legal in general? Unless there is something fundamentally different about frog keeping, somehow.

Also, this implies that while morality is typically subjective (note that I'm sure not making this claim), morality just happens in this case to be objective and furthermore is completely described by legislation (and what's more, legislation that is somewhat in disagreement [Lacey and CITES don't square entirely]). Wow.
I think I could turn and live with animals, they are so placid and self-contain'd.
