Tetsonot is one of many [article title=Pod]observation pods[/article] (D'ni: zik) in an unnamed '[article title=Pod age]pod age[/article]', possibly used by the D'ni as a zoo or museum. The pod itself is often mistakenly referred to as a 'pod age', although all known observation pods of this type exist in the same age.

According to the pod age map released by the DRC, the Tetsonot pod just off the coast of a landmass named Cheecho. The pod is underwater, and it is unknown what sort animals live in the area. The buttons in the pod play sounds of aquatic animals.
The pod itself is typical of the style of pod. However, the pod does not seem functional. The pod is completely dark when the power is turned off, unlike other pods. When the power is turned on, intermittent red emergency lighting flickers on. There is nothing to see outside the windows. However, it is uncertain if this is because the windows are still opaque or there is just no light outside to pod. Nothing happens when their buttons are pressed either, besides a click sound different from the pods of others.
The lower level of the pod is flooded, with knee-deep water. There is a constant trickle of water into the pod, but the water levle never rises, indicating some sort of outlet for the water as well. The pod is labeled with a large D'ni "6" on the lower floor.
Initially, Tetsonot appeared on the DRC restoration list. It was on Phase Four of its restoration when Ae'gura was closed to explorers in 2003. Tetsonot was the fourth and final pod age released by the DRC on April 19, 2007. The linking book was placed in the museum in Ae'gura.
