You got some newts and African dwarf frogs...

I agree Marco. Wild animals don't make very good pets, they stay semi-wild and can have a tendency to turn on their "owners." While fish and frogs don't really do that, I believe every last one of the species in the spotting has been raised for the fish/aquarium trade, and are more than likely many generations removed from the wild.

I think these are for sale, I don´t really like wild animals being pets...

As these are for sale in a pet store I have moved this to Pets for you.

Thank you Marco! It was just an odd portrait seeing so many frogs/fish/salamanders/snails all bunched up in what looks like a very little tiny space. ;-)

Is it enough?

Marco, can you go into a little more detail about the spotting? Very curious as to if this is a large fish tank or a small one, and whether or not these are perhaps being transported or up for sale in a local pet store?

Yes are all alive!

Are these alive, or is this a specimen jar?
