Maybe I'm in the minority here but "why do you need to take them out of the wild?"

Besides it being illegal, you are taking away a potential breeding pair from nature that may produce hundreds or more other frogs. There are already so many other factors that have dwindled the counts down that we don't need to play a part in it. They have been breeding naturally all by themselves and have no need for interference from us. Besides, the stress from being captive will likely stress them out and could kill them not to mention trying to get them to breed you would likely need more than just two of them.

If you really care about them, leave them be. Let many other generations be able to see these same things that you have been able to see. Find a nice CB frog species to keep in your house and enjoy these guys were they are happy.
