aside from being illegal to release them, realize that firebelly toads are from europe and asia and live in climates and habitats that differ greatly form that of the USA. they are also highly toxic to other species of amphibians, small reptiles, birds, fish and other wildlife that may come in contact with them or attempt to eat them. you would be putting local wildlife in danger by releasing such a species into their enviroment, and depending on where you live, the toads would probly not be able to survive most climates and predators. once they were removed from the wild and sold to you, you became responsible for their proper care, which is not releasing them into a foreign enviroment.
