    Apparently there was a Herpetologist named Schlegel (my maiden name) back in the early 1800s who discovered/named/cataloged a bunch of frogs in Indonesia and Japan. It must have skipped a few generations. :p

    Well there you go. You could be related back somewhere along the line.

    I would do some research and try to find out if you're related somehow.
    That's interesting information.

    See, now you have an excuse!

    Though from the title of the thread I got this mental image of a shady guy in a trenchcoat in a dark alley going
    "Pssssst! Hey lady!
    Want to buy a frog?";)
    And that flying frog looks like something out of a 60's blacklight poster!

    That Java Flying Frog is beautiful!

    It would be cool if you're related to the herpetologist. :)

    I totally want to build a setup for a java frog, but i highly doubt anyone is breeding in captivity and I'm very much against WC.

    I'll keep dreaming.

    I did a family tree back in high school. I don't remember any herpetologists, but I did have a ton of family in Germany, so it could be a distant distant relative.

    Either way, I think I would at least get the Rhacophorus schlegelii if I were You.

    If I ever found a bufo willis, I would buy up all I could find!!!!

    Wow that's amazing! The Schlegel's tree frog looks a lot like a White's tree frog. I wish I had a herpetologist somewhere in my family background! That's so great!
