To most animal owners, a pet is an equally important family member. They may have fur, feathers, scales, or tails, but an animal is just as special as its humans. And that’s why so many pet parents go above and beyond when it comes to creating special homes and environments for their animals.
Some animals are especially lucky, though. Their humans are crafty, and they can turn a basic animal habitat into something extraordinary. And one of the coolest ways humans show off their love for their pets is by designing a habitat that combines their pet and their geekiest interest. From comic books and superhero films to literary or video game heroes to beloved children’s TV shows, there are some seriously impressive – and nerdy – animal living spaces that have been created.
Whether you’re looking for some awesomely geeky inspiration to build your own animal habitat or want to see how cool animals’ playgrounds can be, these scratching posts, aquariums, and even reptile terrariums are going to wow you.
