    Rough-skinned Newts are naturally here where I live. I only have a Horned Frog.

    I remember when I started with one frog. Then I ended up with about 4 lol.

    Same with lozards. Bought one, ended up with like 10.

    You always want something else that looks cool. Are you planning on catching one?

    It is against state law to capture or keep them here. I live in a condo so I don't have much room.

    I figured it was illegal. I think it is in most places, especially here in Florida

    I have never seen them. Just talk to people who have seen the adults. I'll go looking for them next spring. The adults can be very toxic
