About Me

about me


I’m Brad, the founder and creator of Vivarium Vibes!

An Australian native, I just love to travel and explore new places and scenery. I have always had a passion for nature, animals, and the ocean and would be filling my time with any combination of those things any chance I could get.

A few years ago on a family trip, I noticed that my 3 year old was really interested in really small plants, insects, stones and pebbles. She would ask me a million questions and constantly want to go exploring to learn more about the beautiful world around us.

I was already familiar with the concept of a terrarium but I started to do more research to see if some of the small animals, my daughter would collect on our adventures, could be taken home with us. That’s where I learned about Vivariums and Paludariums and that many creatures are able to live in these types of enclosures.

From there I was hooked and I have done nothing but immerse myself into this magical world so that I can share my passions with my family and plant and animal lovers alike.

This website is a combination of my passion for nature and animals where I explore the intricacies of Terrariums, Vivariums, Paludariums, plants, animals, and any other related areas.

My goal is to share my knowledge and create a community where like-minded nature and animal enthusiasts can continue to learn and support each other and their amazing creations.

Thank you for joining me on this journey, where nature and creativity intertwine. Stay curious, keep exploring, and enjoy!
