Watching the new episode of Lost is wild with this DIY project. Lizard lovers Genevieve Morwen and Laura Mansfield of Springfield, Massachusetts, built this 6-foot-square vivarium made of wood and plexiglass to house six to 15 reptiles from the Rhacodactylus family (mostly crested geckos and chahouas). They placed a fan behind the television so it doesn't overheat and positioned the speakers away from the vivarium so the noise wouldn't hurt their pets. It is currently being refurbished because the dedicated pet-centric DIYers wanted to add new elements to the structure.
