Josh's Frogs

Josh's Frogs is an inspiring story of success from humble beginnings. It was all started in 2004 by Joshua Willard, a former pastor, dart frog hobbyist and vivarium enthusiast. Josh made flightless fruit fly cultures to serve as feeder insects for his poison dart frogs. From his apartment, he started selling the extra, pre-made fruit fly cultures as well as supplies for kits so others could make their own. After moving to a house, Josh utilized the space in his garage, where he expanded in selling other products as well and hiring his first couple of employees. His dedication to customer service and quality supplies quickly led to a growing success. In 2009, the company moved to its 1st facility in Corunna, Michigan, where it only employed about 4 people but continued to grow. With the extra space, we were able to bring plant propagation, care, and shipping in-house and were able to carry a full line of live plants for dart frog vivaria. We continued to expand our product selection and further develop our own product line, but we quickly began to run out of space! In 2013, Josh's Frogs moved into a 37,000 square foot, 5-story warehouse in Owosso, Michigan where we currently reside and employ over 20 people. We’re now the largest online retailer of reptile and amphibian products as well as the largest breeder of captive bred dart frogs in the United States, and probably the world. We’ve utilized this large space to greatly increase the now even wider variety of live plants, animals, and feeder insects that we offer. Our facility is closed to the public. However, being the leaders in the industry, we are trusted as a hub of helpful information via our website, blogs, videos on our YouTube channel, and other social media. Our knowledgeable staff is always willing to help in any way that we can.
