  1. Captive breeding frogs

    A replicated study in 2000–2004 of captive tarahumara frogs Rana tarahumarae in Arizona, USA (Rorabaugh 2005) found that frogs bred successfully at both high and low maintenance captive facilities. Animals were collected from northern Mexico in 2000. They were reared and bred at a number of facilities ranging from high maintenance to semi-wild low maintenance. In June–October 2004, 56 adult, 229 juvenile and 328 tadpoles were released at four sites in south central Arizona.
