I'm wanting some arboreal terrarium critters! And I want BIG terrariums to go with them!!! Can we get some 1x2, 1x3, 2x2 terrarium sizes, please?

Also: It'd be awesome if they could do some terrariums to go with ants. With the little ants running around in their nests showing along the sides. I mean, it'd basically be impossible to buy individual ants, lol, but they could just use queens or colonies, I guess.
The first thing I would want to see is a third type of terrarium - a temperate display that would look different to either the tropical or desert one. The Zoopedia seems to indicate that a number of terrarium species in the game can occupy the temperate habitat but are placed in one of the existing displays; including a specific temperate terrarium would allow species that could not be so easily slotted into the other terraria.

With that out of the way, fifteen terrarium animals I would like to see represented in Planet Zoo include:
  • Large arboreal gecko (a number of species could fill this role, including the Madagascan giant day, the Asian tokay and the New Caledonian crested)
  • Chameleon (honestly can't choose which species)
  • Ocellated lizard (would add a large, colourful, threatened European species)
  • Peter's banded skink (maybe a bit of an odd choice, but it is a very striking desert species that would help represent the skinks)
  • Frill-necked lizard (probably the most instantly recognisable of Australia's lizards)
  • Cobra (don't really mind the species, although the Indochinese spitting and Cape coral cobras are two particular favourites of mine)
  • Scarlet kingsnake (a good choice for a temperate North American snake)
  • White-lipped tree frog (the largest tree frog and another Australian species)
  • African bullfrog (a species of amphibian that could be suited to the drier-looking desert terrarium)
  • Fire salamander (an ideal inhabitant for the temperate terrarium)
  • Eurasian giant mantis (a very widespread species - from Albania to Nepal - that is also very easily recognisable)
  • Stick insect (any larger species would probably do - the Malaysian jungle nymph may be the most ideal one)
  • Ground beetle (there are a number of large species suitable - I would personally choose from either the Olimpia's ground beetle or tyrant ground beetle)
  • African giant millipede (a very commonly-kept species)
  • Leopard slug (another temperate European species, very large for a slug and a species I have seen displayed in zoo terrariums before)
