Are Zen Habitats Enclosures Worth It?

Zen Habitats Enclosures Are Designed With Your Pet in Mind 

When it comes to finding the ideal home for your reptile, many owners become overwhelmed and frustrated trying to track down the perfect option for their pet. In this article, we'll take a closer look at Zen Habitats enclosures, and discuss the variety of features that set them apart from the competition. Zen Habitats boasts a wide variety of products designed to meet the unique needs of a wide range of species; but are Zen Habitats worth the investment?

Zen Habitats are able to accommodate a wide variety of species. From the smallest enclosure, 2’x2’x2’, perfect for small lizards such as crested geckos to the largest, 4’x2’x4’, ideal for medium to large lizards and snakes, Zen Habitats is sure to have an option for most species of reptiles and amphibians. Zen Habitats offers the most popular enclosure size in two materials - wood and PVC. The 4x2x2 wood panel reptile enclosure is perfect for arid species that require under 50% humidity, such as bearded dragons, uromastyx, and leopard geckos. The bamboo-finished panels retain heat up to 10 times better than glass tanks, which benefits animals with higher ambient heat requirements. PVC panels are available in all enclosure sizes, and are designed for any humidity level between 0 – 100%. This option is the most popular choice for tropical species such as ball pythons and blue tongue skinks, as well as those wanting to create bioactive habitats for their pet. The 2’x2’x4’ and 4’x2’x4’ PVC habitats include an optional screen bottom panel for species requiring higher ventilation, making these popular choices for chameleon owners.  

From Your First Reptile to Your 10th  - Stackable and Expandable Reptile Enclosures 

Whether you're a beginner pet parent bringing home your first reptile, or an experienced reptile keeper, Zen Habitats product line offers something for everyone. For those with several animals, Zen Habitats enclosures can be stacked to create a seamless, professional looking display for your animals. Zen Habitats enclosures also have the ability to be expanded using extension kits, allowing you to merge multiple habitats together to create a perfect sized enclosure for your pet as they grow, eliminating the need to purchase multiple enclosures over the course of your reptile’s lifetime. In addition to length extension kits, Zen Habitats offers corner extension kits, allowing you to give your pet a large, enriching habitat in the smallest of spaces, or otherwise unusable room corners.

More Than Just Reptile Enclosures 

In addition to enclosures, Zen Habitats offers various enclosure accessories designed to enrich your pet’s life!  

The Zen Mat is a perfectly sized solid substrate option for 4’x2’x2’ enclosures. Easy to clean and maintain, the Zen Mat can be wiped clean with reptile safe cleaners to provide a hassle free clean up experience. These mats are textured for optimal grip for your reptile, and padded underneath to provide more support for your animal than traditional solid substrate options such as tile or shelf liner.   

The Zen Cave is an all-in-one basking platform and hide, featuring a slate top basking surface for excellent overhead heat absorption, and a roomy cave underneath for resting.  

If you plan on making your enclosure bioactive, the Zen Habitats Bio-Basin is a perfect choice to keep substrate and moisture contained to your habitat. The Bio-Basin is a durable, crystal clear, pre-cut vinyl sheet that acts as a protective barrier to hold bioactive media and reduce the risk of leaks or spills.
