Someone should grab the chat log after the event so those who were not in attendance can check it out.

Wow, this sounds like a very interesting topic! However, since I have no experience whatsoever in building terrestrial vivaria, I don't even know where to begin with questions.

What about material no-no's...? Maybe you experts out there can recount old disaster stories of materials that turned out to be hazardous or started to warp, etc.

A question like "What does a newbie need to know to get started?" seems a little too broad. Perhaps someone can better articulate a question that caters to us newbie vivarium architects

That is a good start. We have some serious (and quite a few professional) vivariasts here and I am certain those questions will be addressed. I know I have some hysterical materials disaster stories from over the years. I may even recount the now infamous "Fruit Fly Incident of 1987" which you all will have to tune in to hear. You will realize what an amazingly tolerant couple my parents were with me as a young "home scientists"...


Here is my contribution to the questions:


What are the differences between terrariums, vivariums, paluadiums, and aquariums?


(I look forward to answering myself on this one)

I'll be there to provide the comic relief. What do you call a newt with only 1 leg? Triturus trilegus. Thank you, thank you very much - I'm here all week.

I am also curious about the pros and cons of different substrates and false bottoms for terrestrial caudates. Additionally, I have seen foggers that pet stores sell for ridiculous prices. What do you experienced caudate-keepers prefer as far as keeping your vivs at the proper humidity?

Sadly, a friend of mine just up and decided to celebrate her birthday this Friday evening (rude, I know ) so I will not be able to be present for this chat event. However, I still hope that all goes well and that the discussion gets saved so that I can check it out later

Cheers.
