Frogs

At Kellyville Pets we love our animal friends and are committed to matching owners with the right pet and providing customers with unsurpassed advice, service and selection of products. This is our way of ensuring our animals have the best possible start in their new home with you.

Unfortunately, due to licensing laws and requirements, Kellyville Pets are not yet able to sell Frogs. 

All frogs (and tadpoles) are protected in NSW under the National Parks and Wildlife Act, and it is against the law to take them from the wild to keep as pets. This will ensure that risks to wild populations from illegal collection and key threatening process such as Chytrid Fungus and other diseases are minimised.

You can get a licence from the NPWS to keep frogs, but you must obtain the frogs from a licensed breeder or society. You can only keep frogs that have either been bred in captivity or for other reasons cannot be released back into the wild.

For educational purposes, schools in NSW have been licensed to enable children and their teachers to collect and keep a maximum of 20 tadpoles to watch them grow and transform into froglets. Tadpoles must never be collected from national parks or other reserves. Once tadpoles have transformed into froglets, they must be released back in the location where they were collected.

If you wish to keep frogs or tadpoles, you must get a licence from the Office of Environment and Heritage. The amphibian licensing and record-keeping system allows OEH to monitor which amphibian species are being kept, bred and traded amongst enthusiasts.
