Pretty amazing when you read about them using the frogs to detect pregnancy. :O

I can't believe they are illegal. I see them all the time here in Atlanta so it must not be illegal here.

Depends on locality. Places more prone to native wildlife loss due to chytrid and competition is where they are usually illegal. It literally varies between neighboring cities here.

Not necessarily. There are a number of species that show up in the pet trade that were never legally exported from the country of origin but USF&W doesn't seem to be actively interested in. Typhlonectes natans (Rubber eel, Rio Cauca caecilian) is a classic example. Colombia only legally exports farm-raised boas, iguanas and tropical fish. The caecilians make it into mixed tropical fish shipments as 'miscellaneous eels'- despite being amphibians. There was a massive seizure in the mid 90s and USF&W donated some animals to zoos as a result.
