when i say farms, i am refering to both breeders for the pet trade and for food, as many of the places that catch frogs for food also sell to the pet industry.. The vast majority of leptodactylus species are wild caught imports or are imported from breeding facilities in south america that have wild caught adults or wild caught eggs and tadpoles. they then raise them till they are of adequate size to be shipped out for sale. over the past 5 years frogs from this genus have become more popular in the pet trade in the US and some people have begun to do small, private breeding programs, but these frogs are not common in the pet trade and generaly are sold for double the price of wild caught specimens.
