What is a Vivarium Room?

Latin for "place of life," a vivarium is an enclosed area where animals and/or plants can live in conditions similar to their natural habitat. That can be a range of functions and sizes, from a tarantula cage on a teenager's desk, to the penguinarium at the Prague Zoo.

In the scientific community, vivarium rooms can also be called animal research facilities, and their purpose is to house animals and/or plants under conditions simulating a natural environment. These microecosystems are crucial for observing life in a specific environment, or safely housing experimental animals.

Important Aspects of Vivarium Rooms in Bellingham, WA

There are several environmental controls needed to keep a vivarium room functioning properly. For your needs in Bellingham, WA, you need to know that your controlled environment room can properly maintain:

  • Lighting — Different life forms need different levels and types of lighting that meet their adapted needs. Reptiles, amphibians, and other animals warm themselves with external heat like the sun, while some plants do best in the shade. Different bulbs offer different levels and types of heat and light, and we can also offer a regulator to simulate night and day.
  • Temperature and Humidity — Similarly, different animals and plants have adapted to different temperature and humidity levels. Heat can be provided through an HVAC system or heat lamps.
  • Ventilation — Proper air flow is crucial for circulating air, preventing mold accumulation, preventing the proliferation of harmful bacteria, and balancing the air flow between the holding room and vivarium room. There are a variety of exhaust fan options available, depending on what works best for you.

An organism's habitat plays a vital role in their health. You need an impeccable vivarium room to guarantee not just the health of your specimens, but the validity of your Bellingham, WA research.
