Slide Show: Oh Terrariums, How I Love You!
One of Robert’s counter displays: this one includes a moist terrarium (far right) with humidity-loving plants; a still-life shell and stone terrarium (center) and a terrarium habitat with a live, active tarantula creeping about in it (far left).
Only a thin layer of glass between this tarantula and visitors!
