What Are Vivarium Rooms? The term "vivarium" comes from the Latin words for "place for" and "living things." In short,. That can include a range of functions and sizes, from a heated glass box for a bearded dragon on a teenager's desk, to the penguinarium at the Prague Zoo. For research purposes, vivarium rooms can also be called animal research facilities, and they are used to house animals and/or plants in a specific, controlled ecosystem. These microecosystems are a fundamental aspect of observing plants or animals under certain conditions, or safely housing animals who are being used for research purposes. Things to Think About When Purchasing a Vivarium Room in St. Louis, MO There are numerous environmental controls necessary to keep a vivarium room functioning properly. For your needs in St. Louis, MO, you need to know that the controlled environment room can properly maintain: Lighting — Different plants and animals have grown accustomed to different types of lighting and heating. "Cold-blooded" animals need sunlight to keep their bodies warm, while some plants do best in the shade. Simulating the right light can take different types of bulbs, and your vivarium room may need a controller to simulate light and dark periods. Temperature and Humidity — In a similar vein, some animals have little tolerance for high humidity and temperature, while others need it to survive. Heat can be provided through an HVAC system or special lamps. Air Flow — Ventilation is crucial for circulating air, staving off mold growth, stopping the growth of damaging 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. A life form's physical environment plays a vital role in their health.
