    In the wild or store bought? Not that I know either way but am curious if your looking to collect from the wild or buy one. Good luck!

    Here's some info about bullfrogs: B.C. Frogwatch Program – Environment – Province of British Columbia

    Under the 'How You Can Help' heading it says this: Bullfrogs are considered wildlife in B.C., and it is actually illegal under the Wildlife Act to capture, transport, keep or sell them.

    Yes, as an invasive species, catching bullfrogs could arguably be described as helping out BC's natural fauna since bullfrogs are major predators of local frog, salamander, insect, and fish species. At least that's what I would argue if I was caught.

    The fear is that you may be moving one species to another body of water that is clear of that species. In this case, if the bull frog escapes or is introduced to another waterway that has no bull frogs, that waterway is now infected.

    It'd be moved to my wok, so no chance of escape or expanded infestation.

    meanie. Actually i had one nesting the winter out in my crawlspace when i lived in maple ridge. I got this motion detector thing that croaked like a frog when u passed it. It woke the poor frog up from his hybernation and we would here it occasionally answering back..........it was cute.

    I think if you go to one of the gravel pits you'll find them. I also remember walking along the dike by the mission bridge, there were ponds south of the bridge that had thousands of large tadpoles, I believe they would have turned into bullfrogs, they were huge. We were walking our kids down there with friends, (almost 20 years ago but I still remember this), our neihbour waded into the pool, slipped on the grass and went under, she came up with the tadpoles wriggling all over her, some got down her shirt, it was hilarious. probably still some there, at the pond that is. I think if your going to eat then you should euthenize them their, I doubt your allowed to transfer live ones, but I bet you can take all the dead ones you like.
