I think I should like a terrarium

July 18th, 2009 at 06:01 pm

We have a number of frogs out of doors in the yard (one advantage to not spraying for weeds)

And the kids find them very interesting but it is very hard to study them at length, cause they naturally run, err hop from kid!

Anyway I was considering how to keep and observe them without endangering them, and I think a simple tank terrarium, or bowl would be ok. I just have to either make sure the kids let them go after a day, or find out what they eat (I guess flies?)

I have no desire for a pet resident, so not looking to spend a lot of money (or any if possible), I just want a temporary holding device that will last for a day or at most a week (though next year I mean to take the kids down to the creek and hunt for tadpoles early if possible-those we would keep till they morph, so long as we manage not to kill em)

Anyway, been racking my brain all morning, somehow a collection of computer parts doesn't lend itself well to a terrarium.

    Have you checked Craigslist or FreeCycle for an old fish aquarium?

    Aquariums change hands fairly frequently on our Freecycle group.

    Interesting! I had to look that one up. Learn something new.

    I love terrariums! Right now I just have one with an anole in it. Some day I'll build my own custom vivarium. Tiger salamanders are my favorite although I don't currently have any.
