...talking about frogs, i saw live frogs sold at chinese stores. The color is green and the
average size
is same as the computer mouse. I had eaten frogs from the rice field but not this kind.
Anybody out there knows where to get the babies of these kind of froggies?

Dont know if this will help tim, but

  Rayne Louisiana is the FROG capitol of the world.
The Louisiana frog company is located there.  They deal in frozen products I am sure, But they
may be able to put you intouch with
some one who would supply you with wild caught live frogs.   You might also try contacting
Rayne Louisiana Chamber of Commerice.

   I dont know anything about raising them although I have grown up with them around all of my
life.   We have 600+ acres rice farm.

   I can say they seem to be pretty territorial AND independant.
You may find 1 frog staking out a claim to the out fall of a culvert in a drainage ditch where
there is permanent water puddle.
Never I have  seen 2 or more in same place.

   I do often find frog egg masses in the rice fields and tons of tad poles.  However lots of
different kinds of frogs around so I
am not sure how to tell which is a bull frog egg and which is a leopard frog egg etc......
