A vivarium (Latin, literally for “place of life”; plural: vivaria or vivariums) is a usually enclosed area for keeping and raising animals or plants for observation or research. Often, a portion of the ecosystem for a particular species is simulated on a smaller scale, with controls for environmental conditions.

A vivarium may be small enough to sit on a desk or table, such as a terrarium or an aquarium, or may be a very large structure, possibly outdoors. Large vivaria, particularly those holding organisms capable of flight, typically include some sort of a dual-door mechanism such as a sally port for entry and exit, so that the outer door can be closed to prevent escape before the inner door is opened.

Wiki says;
This article is about the enclosed area for keeping and raising animals. For other uses, see Vivarium (disambiguation).

Which family member?

Sure looks like a washer or dryer in it?

Thank you all for putting up the definition of Vivarium. I assumed everyone knew what one was
