Yes it’s basically the same thing, a vivarium is an enclosed space where you can keep organisms in - e.g an aquarium, which is a vivarium with water. A terrarium is a viv with only land which is what you keep a hedgehog in.
Pretty much everyone except the UK calls it a terrarium, but vivarium is correct as well, just a more broader term.

I don’t have experience with them as I’m not in the US but I’ve heard good things about Animal Plastics.
