The show is Scaled, and the team at Cornel’s World, a custom terrariums and woodworking business in Calgary, will be shown constructing big-scale reptile terrariums. They build terrariums like a giant Mayan temple, a post-apocalyptic nightmare and an Avatar blue dream-world.
“I wasn’t actively looking for a TV show, so it was just coincidence,” says West, the owner of the business. “We’ve been filming since May and today is the final day of shooting season one.”
Eighteen years ago, Cornel’s World was a small business in West’s garage. He began by constructing fun terrariums for his own reptiles but thought he could make some extra cash by building homes for other people’s cold-blooded pets. It’s now a full-time business for West and his 10 employees.
