OK, this made me really mad.....

So, I went to one of my favorite pet stores today. I was having a great time, until I saw these.....

They were selling them as "Painted African Frogs" for 9.99 a piece. They were dyed all different colors..Orange, green, yellow..

made me so mad.... Poor frogs. Just wanted share this little piece of cruelty. It doesn't made sense.. aren't the frogs beautiful enough with OUT the stupid green and orange dye!??!

And shame on the people who buy them. If there was no market, they wouldn't do it.


Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.

Most of the people that buy them don't know they have been dyed. I'm sure if they did they wouldn't buy them.

Not to worry, the 'painted' frog is just the name of the species (african painted reed frog), it is a variety of colours naturally :)
