It’s hard to believe that we are already working on the fourth issue of The Vivarium. Winter, Spring, and Summer have past and Autumn is upon us. I love summer for the opportunities to go outside, search for wildlife, work on outdoor and greenhouse pens, and enjoy the heat. When fall approaches, I’m sad to say goodbye to the long, warm summer days, but find myself with time to catch up on some of the reading I ignored while the sun was beckoning me outdoors. If this is your first time sitting down to read The Vivarium, you will find that this year, we have compiled a large variety of articles ranging over many different vivarium topics.
In this issue, articles cover some popular species such as Leopard Geckos and wrasses. We have included articles on some of the possibly overlooked species like Curly-tail lizards and Paradise fish. As a hobbyist, I am of course intrigued by the new, unique, and rare species but will always hold a special place in my heart for those species that brought me into the hobby in the first place. I find joy in knowing that these species that have meant so much to me are not forgotten by the rest of the community just because they are not “new on the market.” So, now that the sun is setting a little earlier, grab this edition (and maybe past issues too!) and enjoy!
We would love to hear your story.
