Viveruim?
 
I have been looking into a cool cage type deal of my new hedgie. He currently lives in a tote but wanted to try and research other things just for fun & maybe some day get something new.

Can anyone explain what a viv really is? Are terrariums pretty much the same thing?

Were would one in the US acquire such a thing?

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.

Thank you so much for the response!
I was wondering, been trying to dig up some information but haven't had too much of luck. But will continue to check out some stuff :)
