Perfect for dart frogs

I order these cultures once every few weeks and they always arrive on time and alive. They can't fly, so no worries about them flying off. My little dart frogs love em!

Great product and excellent price. My original culture lasted well over a month and produced thousands of flies. The local pet store pays more than 3.99 per culture.

Always alive

They always arrived alive some times the shipper delivers them all stirred up but there are always a lot of lie flies that will refresh my old cultures. I have also bought a few frogs from josh and they are always very healthy froglets that have survived to adulthood. I have gotten an actual male/ female pair that I bought from josh. I just love josh´s frogs. My frogs are big beautiful and robust. If you give them the environment they need they will live a long long time.


Always alive

These flies are always alive. They get stirred up by the shipper some times.. I have bought a few frogs from josh and they are healthy and robust. They have thrived in my viv. I got two froglets and they were male/female and quite robust. I could not be happier with my purchases from josh.
