It's an enclosed environment, normally a glass container, in which plants and/or animals are raised under conditions that approximate their natural habitat.
There's like terrariums which are 100%land, vivariums have land and sometimes an aquatic part.
Paludariums (which is actually more what I'm building), is part land and part aquatic, often with land creatures and fish or amphibians... and well you get the idea...

Thanks for the comment =)
It's a different art form that I though people should take a second look at and realize how beautiful these vivariums/paludariums etc can be and to show the process of the build just like a painting or whatever... ^^
See ya

WOW
guess what I'm gunna do with this informaton?
TINY SET TIME!!!

it is time to put this vivarium tutorial into good uses-I would use it here in my apartment...but there is no humidity in the desert....

For my many mini film ideas I will certainly use this tutorial and certainly ask questions...I think my mother will be very happy to join in on this!!

WOOHOO! I remember when poeple would use their imaginations and build tiny sets like this...I will bring back the glamour of it all!!!

and not to mention make a living space for a ll the lizrds i like to catch : D

So:
Rule #1: The BIGGER the BETTER =D
mine is 60x30x30 cm... but it's going to double or more in size I don't know how much that is in inches...
Doesn't matter where you live; If you want a tropical or continental environment, just use a fogger + spray bottle and a water recipient. You can get up to 100% humidity in your tank!
If you live in the desert, you can always get a reptile that lives in hot conditions and build a vivarium to meet your pet's needs, wich is always Sooooo much fun!
Keep posted for the fogger demo ...
