noun (plural vivaria /vʌɪˈvɛːrɪə/ /vɪˈvɛːrɪə/)
An enclosure, container, or structure adapted or prepared for keeping animals under semi-natural conditions for observation or study or as pets; an aquarium or terrarium.
Early 17th century: from Latin, literally 'warren, fish pond', from vivus 'living', from vivere 'to live'.
Blaphat carefully observed the vivarium
to study the behavior of the tiny organisms thriving inside. His probe was not a danger to the container, though the container before him believed it was, itself, being studied. If Blapaht did his job well, the container should not remember it's time in Beaphat's care. Once returned to the planet below, the container would carry Blaphat's organisms for the rest of its existence. If things worked as well as they usually did, the fresh injection of Kalamah life would continue to grow and reproduce. They would follow their endless life cycle, passing from this container to it's thousands of neighbors. In turn, the Kalamah life would move outward from the initial community to the entire continent.
Blaphat hoped the advances in sea-travel technology and the new spirit of exploration would allow these adaptable vivarium creatures to carry the Kalamah phuzze with them as they explored the wider world below. Blaphat had enjoyed his time here. He was content that he had done his best. After returning the container to the planet below (during its night phase, to avoid too much disturbance), Blaphat would prepare for his jump to the next suitable planet. Seeding this section of the vast galaxy was his pleasurable duty.
