The Great Indoors
By Tim sullivan

A few months ago I wrote an article on sports products urging people to get off the couch and get outside. If you are one of the five people that read that piece, ignore it. There's no need to go outside anymore. Nature is coming in.

When I was a kid, a mayonnaise jar with a stick inside seemed to be a perfect habitat for all sorts of critters. The recipe was simple: rinse, add stick, and boom, instant perfect environment for frogs, newts, fireflies, and anything else I got my hands on.

Unfortunately for me and certainly for the creatures, the recipe was wrong and my new pets rarely made it through the night. I couldn’t even keep an animal securely in a real cage. Instead, I would come home to find an empty gerbil cage and a much-loved Batmobile chewed to pieces.

Luckily, your children do not have to suffer the same fate and neither do their pets. A number of companies have come out with some really cool, innovative habitats for creatures big and small. Check these products out and let the great outdoors into your home.
