Scorpions, Death Feigning Beetles, Mexican Jumping Beans, and so much more! Over the past 100 days, I documented my little chunk of the desert. Watch as it transforms from a barren wasteland into a thriving ecosystem!

The transition from "See that little drop of liquid, that is a potent venom and I need to be extremely careful." "So I picked him up and started putting him in the tank." Is just so funny to me

I love how the drying up and rain cycle works, not only is it pure genius and amazing, it’s also pretty close to how some of these creatures would actually live in the wild, I find it astounding, how you put so much effort into simulating a desert environment.

I don't normally comment twice. But this was legitimately the best thing I have ever watched in 2023. Please do more ecosystems when you find the time. I loved the dune scorpion's ultraviolet light and the blue beetles. I love how you weren't afraid to truly simulate life in the desert. And the Jericho plant expansion was the coolest event because that was just straight beautiful! Keep it up, the bell is on!

It was pretty incredible to watch you go from around 22k subs to over a million. I started watching for that insane Jungle Terrarium with the weather cycles, and I've watched this a fair few times as well. The idea and execution of weather AND changing terrain conditions with the pond are not something I would ever expect to be possible. I eagerly await your next upload. What's next, a woodland forest?

i have been thinking of doing something like this too, unfortunately, blue death feigning beetles and mexican jumping beans are impossible to get in the netherlands, add to that that our best invertebrate shop closed recently, making it harder to get scorpions and isopods. the only invertebrate sellers left almost exlusively sell tarantulas. i'm going to need to find some local community to actually start building this.

In part 2 you should put another apex predetor that competes with the scorpion like a Desert gecko maybe a Desert snake like a Kenyan sand Boa although the Kenyan sand boa is really big slightly less longer than the Bearded dragon but the Kenyan sand boa is less wide

I won't lie fully panicked when I thought you were serious about the bearded dragon! I own one and the tank being too small is only the tip of the iceberg on how unsuitable and dangerous a home like this would have been. That aside, absolutely gorgeous set up for these little critters!!! I love the ecosystem videos because it's something that takes a lot of patience and knowledge to get balanced but is so beautiful and worth it when you are able to achieve it!!
