Have you ever dreamed of building a giant, naturalistic vivarium for your frogs? What does it take to construct, scape, plant and stock a 48 cubic foot vivarium (4ft by 2ft by 6ft)? In this 4 part series we will build a hypothetical large format vivarium from the ground up and address the challenges and rewards that go along with it!
In this episode (Part 1.) I am joined by Bill Rodman of In Situ Ecosystems and we discuss the creation of, and engineering behind, his large format vivarium, the Orinoco Grande. We talk about how the tank is kept light weight through the use of special materials, how important lighting and ventilation is, and some of the different frog behaviors that are only seen in large format tanks.
