Tell Ace Hardware to Stop Selling Live Frogs!

UN LAB Middleware Label: Title Ends

You aren’t gonna believe this, but Ace Hardware stores around the country are selling mini tanks with African dwarf frogs trapped inside. 😨 🐸 These tiny cubes are way too small for these fragile animals. We need to hammer home this message to Ace Hardware: Stop selling live frogs like merchandise!

African dwarf frogs need specialized care—but many consumers are misled to believe that they’re “low-maintenance,” which has caused many frogs to die. They live 15 years on average in nature, but they’re lucky to make it to five in captivity. 😞

Selling frogs in these tiny transparent boxes is inhumane. Period. The artificial “biospheres” aren’t proper substitutes for frogs’ natural environment at all—they don’t give them enough space to live comfortably. These tanks don’t have a filtration system to prevent water from becoming filthy and toxic. 🤮 Plus, frogs can easily pass salmonella to children or immunocompromised people, so selling them to anyone with a credit card is dangerous af. 🤦
