Check out Zilla’s new home! Everyone’s favorite lizard (A Bearded Dragon) just got an upgrade to a bioactive terrarium. What is that you ask? A bioactive terrarium (or vivarium) is a tank that includes live plants, as well as cultures of microorganisms called isopods (such as rollie pollies) that consume and break down the waste products of the animal living in the tank. This allows our tanks to become better, cleaner environments for animals, and better replicates their natural environment!
