  1. Captive breeding frogs

    A replicated study in 2007–2008 of captive amphibians at a facility in Hanoi, Vietnam (Truong et al. 2009) found that Hylarana maosonensis, Rhacophorus feae, Rhacophorus maximus and Chinese gliding frogs Rhacophorus dennysi bred successfully in captivity. Following successful breeding in 2007, 300 Chinese gliding frog froglets were released into the wild in June 2008 at the location that the parents had been collected. Rhacophorus feae and Rhacophorus maximus were also to be released into the wild.
