Frog eggs may be obtained from a variety of sources, including the natural world and agricultural production. Frog eggs are most commonly found in aquatic environments such as marshes or streams, but can also be found in ponds or lakes. Frogs that lay their eggs near people or animals often deposit their eggs closer to human habitation for easier collection. Eggs also may be collected from traps set for frogs, either as live prey—a practise that is illegal in many countries—or after it has died and been removed from its environment.
