8 Oaks Terrariums

Photo by Josh Leo
Direct your self to http://8oaksterrariums.tumblr.com/ to see some truly gorgeous terrariums by Josh Leo (and not to mention some great photography).  I love the rabbit's fern terrarium in the above photo; the characteristic furry "foot" of the fern adds a lovely texture to contrast with the delicate fern fronds.  Also note the longer "tendrils" of moss - a sure sign of a balanced terrarium environment supporting further plant growth. 

Josh also has a consice and simple guide on terrarium care here.

  1. The keel-billed toucan one of the colorful Latin American member of the toucan family.

    The keel-billed toucan impresses people with its substantial beak length of 20 cm. It is the national bird of Belize. The fantastic-looking beak mixes with the bird’s head, consisting of stunning color combinations of green, purple, blue, and orange. The body is black, the front of the head is covered with pure yellow fur. About 55 cm long and the bird weighs 380-500 grams. It is mainly found in parts of southern Mexico to Venezuela and Colombia.They tend to travel at very slow speeds and can fly at altitudes of 6,200 feet. Finally, the bird is considered endangered because many people are left to hunt its beak.
