Double Glazed Vivarium

A rare lizard has survived freezing temperatures after it was found in a Shropshire garden.

A PAIR of slippery customers are thrilled to be in their new vivarium home and it's all thanks to a Solihull double glazing company.

Burmese Pythons Sasha and Conan took up residence in the specially produced vivarium created by the Window Centre, after Solihull College Animal Management students Amanda McGill and Laura Stringer came up with the design.

Claire Perry, co-ordinator at the college's Animal Care Centre said: "We provided the designers at the Window Centre with the original design drawings that the students came up with. We realised that the technology we needed to produce the vivarium was similar to the double glazing used in the construction of structures like conservatories and that is what led us to approach the Window Centre.

I'm not sure they knew what to make of the original enquiry when we explained that the glazing was for a pair of 12 foot Burmese pythons - I think that they thought that it was all one big joke!"

Tyrone Bowen, sales executive at the Window Centre, is really pleased with the vivarium now that it is finished. He said: "At first, I thought that it was all a wind up but it has been a really good experience working with the college and it has to be the most unusual project that we have ever been involved with.
