{more terriums...old ones revised}

{i found this moss at lake castaic today. i was excited to replace my old brown moss with the fresh green. i don't know if this is normal but i suprisingly found a 3 inch worm in one of the terriums. it looked happy so i left it in there. hopefully it can not push open the top and escape. gag.}
