Did anyone else own Upland Chorus Frogs?

Back when I didn't know better, I caught two upland chorus frogs in two days. The male had died, and the female we kept and named Amp. Amp had lived a long life (She was probably 3 or 4 when we found her) And lived with a cope's gray tree frog, until she broke her hind legs while I was getting the supplies to make a terrarium. (never keep anything (even if it's temporary) in a backyard safari 2 in 1 tank, The lining stinks, and killed every bug I put in there to feed them, and it killed amp by breaking her hind legs. ) But did anyone else keep upland chorus frogs? and if you did do you have any still available? thanks in advance!

I don't have any now, but I've kept P.crucifer, P.regilla, P.sierra, and P.maculata, the last of which is closely related to P.feriarum. P.maculata has done well on damp coir in plastic storage boxes, but most such boxes are not all that secure for small herps. I've recently found some storage bins with an actual seal on the lid, and have drilled small air holes in the lid. No Pseudacris in these yet.

I have some Cajuns that I’m keeping and I’m hopefully breeding this spring, they laid eggs last spring but I did something stupid and killed all the tads.

    @The-Axolotl, im a hug energy when it comes to axolotls, and decided i might as well “shoot my shot” and try to make a living out of it. lots of inspiration taken from margie, who used to breed and sell here on caudata- she was raising about 1000 juveniles at a time, which is my end goal
