I'm pretty sure that's illegal but I could be wrong?Maybe its re-releasing WC animals?But it's not really great to do because you could introduce diseases to native populations.

I've also read of the dangers of exposing non-native diseases to native populations when releasing animals back into the wild. Too bad, as I was keen on releasing most of my H.tokyoensis larvae to the same location where their egg sac was found once they morph. There are a couple articles on this topic at:
