Our Story

Frogs 'n' Things is located in Hilltown PA, just 10min from the PA tpk NE extension (476), approximately 30 min south of Allentown PA (I78) and 40 min north of Philadelphia. It is a small business officially founded in 2011, although we have been keeping and breeding amphibians for >35 years. 

 Keith Q. Tanis, Ph.D. - Founder and Proprietor

Ask Keith why he’s obsessed with frogs and he’ll shrug his shoulders. He just always was.  Maybe it’s that they are the clowns of the rainforest.  Maybe it’s that they are the most toxic animals on earth.  Or maybe it’s having a slice of creation right in his basement.  Regardless, its an obsession that many of you understand.

So, did he really need all that schooling to sell frogs?

In his spare time, Keith applies genetics and genomics technologies for the development of new and safer medicines and therapeutics.  It’s a great distraction from the stress of the frog business! Check out his publications here.

Kyle has been part of the frog business since day one. When not helping at shows he’s most likely off breeding tropical fish or flying around in the sky somewhere.
