The 48"x24"x16" PVC Panel Reptile Enclosure by Zen Habitats is great for lizards, snakes, tortoises, and other small animals that require a low to high humidity environment. Zen Habitats Reptile Enclosure uses 1” anodized aluminum, bamboo printed PVC panels, front sliding/removable acrylic doors, a galvanized steel screen top, additional top humidity shield to retain humidity, and a 6" substrate shield (to keep loose substrate in the habitat when the door is open). The steel screen top includes screen support bars and wire grommets to give you the flexibility to install your lighting fixtures inside or outside the enclosure.
Why the 48"x24"x16" Zen Habitats Reptile Enclosures?
Large enclosures – 80-gallon equivalent. Many reptiles thrive when given room to run, jump, and climb. 48"x24"x16" reptile enclosures are twice as larger than 40 gallon breeder tanks.
Non-reflective surfaces reduce anxiety. Most reptiles are territorial and do not like their own reflections.
Front-sliding doors minimize stress when approaching your pet. Many reptiles and amphibians have a parietal eye which helps them spot aerial predators. A lot of reptile tanks open from the top - approaching from above can cause stress for your pet.
Bamboo printed composite PVC panels for up to 100% humidity. Allows for a high humidity environment without the disadvantages of glass aquariums.
Humidity Shield helps retain humidity while providing ventilation. Optional 36" sheet of acrylic that lays on top of the screen to help control humidity.
Substrate Shield included. All Zen Habitats come with an optional substrate shield for those who use loose substrate.
Lightweight – Only 42 lbs. fully assembled.
Easy to assemble – A rubber mallet sometimes helps.
Frogs and amphibians
Many other lizards, snakes and tortoises that thrive in high humidity environments.
Everything was an ease to set up. No issues with anything. I bought this for my female Ball Python who is getting chunkier and longer now and I wanted to kind of spoil her and give her a Habitat she can thrive in and enjoy. She seems to be doing just that. She has always been explorative but now she seems to explore alot more. It's aesthetically pleasing for me to look into her natural looking habitat. Feels like I'm looking at a Ball Python in the wild. The Zen Habitats enclosure is perfect for Ball Pythons. At least the sub-adults and up for the remainder of their life. I've gotten manu compliments on it, but most importantly seeing my girl thrive is what makes me happy. Thank you Zen Habitats for what you're doing.
High quality and great shipping! My daughter’s bearded dragon loves it
We love our Zen...and so does our skink!
This is the absolute best reptile cage and cabinet! My Russian tortoise friends are happy, clean, and even more social now that we've moved their beautiful habitat into the main room of the house. The set up instructions (written and video) need an update, but overall, the construction was easy and a fun experience. And now because my reptile care is so easy and accessible, I plan to purchase another 4x2 and cabinet spacer in the near future. ALL the animal friends have a space!
Best enclosure for the money. Easy assembly a definite plus. I love the aesthetics of this tank. Gorgeous!
Very nice enclosure. The video on how to assemble it is great. If you follow it step-by-step, assembly will be a breeze. If you jump ahead without really paying attention, like me, it's possible to undo your mistakes and put back together correctly, so no worries. I think this provide a comfortable home for my Russian tortoise for many years.
Beautiful tank for skink
Beautiful enclosure. Great size for my ball python. Front sliding doors allow much easier access for cleaning.
My enclosure makes my beardie king of the hill. ..
Very spacious and sturdy.
Loved these enclosures so much I bout two more
Vegeta loves it.
This enclosure is absolutely perfect for ball pythons! The humidity is perfect and it’s so spacious. My ball python has been more active than ever and it looks so beautiful.
Bought this after much research for our young red foot tortoise. It holds heat and humidity great. Looks beautiful in our living room. Hoping an extension kit for this size is in the works
We love the tank. And our boa is slowly getting used to it. At first, she stayed in the corner in her cave, but now she's exploring more. We are still having trouble with keeping it humid. The front doors are great for cleaning, adding leaf litter and putting in fresh water. It was challenging for us to put the tank together (we got it before the new video instructions came out). I'd definitely recommend it. Thank you!
Fantastic setup, my dumerils boa loves the space it providers her, easy assembly great customer service
I love this enclosure. Perfect for my Northern Blue Tongue Skink, Elmore. This enclosure gives him double the square footage than the low wide Exo Terras, which was much needed. The substrate shield also allows Elmore to burrow to his hearts content. The sliding doors are easy to work with while giving an unobstructed view of the terrarium. Elmore seems to feel safer and therefore is seen out more often because there are more opaque sides.
Both of my box turtles love this enclosure!
Looks very nice and once you get it set up is very easy to operate
This enclosure was the perfect upgrade for my corn snake! He has so much more space and enrichment now. It is stacked with my other Zen Habitats and looks so good!
The habitat is amazing and my tortoise loves it, only problem was actually building it, some pieces didint work with me as much as others did, definitely needed a rubber mallet.
New home for my Eastern Blue Tongue Skink (Tiliqua scincoides scincoides) with the old grow out box on top. 48x24x16 enclosure on top of 48x24x24 Cabinet Stand. Plenty of room for my skink to finish growing and live in forever, and plenty of room to change things up later. I love the sturdy bars on the top to hang the UV-B lamp in the enclosure.
I ordered 48×24×16 inch tank. Love it. Pros - it is gorgeous, has full sturdy screen on top and large doors for access, was easy to assemble, came well packaged, lightweight and the price is great. Cons - because of the size, the bottom panel needs extra support in the middle, it tends to sag a little without it; written assembly instructions were impossible to follow until we found the assembly video on the site; substrate shield position is flimsy and does not stay in place.
Jiren absolutely loves his tank and I do too! It's a great design plus has a nice sleek look. I'll be getting the deluxe stacking spacer for it very soon too. No question well worth the wait for this perfect enclosure!
Love the terrarium!! Easy to assemble, great quality and our Beardie is very happy!!! Took awhile to get it but I guess it’s because of COVID. However, it was definitely worth the wait!!
My Leo absolutely loves her ZenHabitat enclosure. She has a 48x24x16. Quality and customer service are top notch. So much so, I am thinking about purchasing a second and stacking it for another leopard gecko. Simply the best!
Very easy to put together. Our snake is very happy! She loves her new forever home. Thanks!
I love everything about this except the assembly video. It is a bit confusing because when it is being assembled on the video he doesn’t show close up what’s he’s doing.
The video was helpful when putting together. My Ball Python loves having all the room to roam and stretch out. The enclosure is well made and looks awesome! Might buy another for our tarantula.
This enclosure is perfect for my box turtle. He's enjoying the added space and opaque walls. The enclosure is large enough that he can have a cooler side with his shelter and a warmer, brighter side for sunning himself.
I just happened upon Zen Habitats while searching for reptile enclosures. When I viewed their products I was in total awe! I knew for several months that I was going to have to upgrade my tortis enclosure from a clear plastic tote but wasn't able to find another clear tote that was larger than what I already had. You can't imagine how excited I was to find something larger, much more stylish, and I didn't have to cut out and screw in. Whenever I show my friends their response is always, "WOW, that is nice!" My tortis love it and so do I.
The only "con" thing I can say is that I wish the top plexiglass came in smaller pieces so I would be able to "customize" where I put the heater and lighting but other than that this is an awesome product. Like me, you won't be disappointed.
Amazingly light and easy to build!
Easy to put together and it’s the best way to get your bearded dragon in and out
I am so incredibly pleased with the purchase of this enclosure. My Romeo loves it and is so happy with his new home. I will be buying more enclosures in the future❤️
a great purchase for a reptile.east to build.
Service and quality were amazing! Love it!
I wish I had bought the Taller one. This one is too short for a uvb light for a bearded dragon. I regret getting this one. Other than that I love it. I didn’t realize how short this really was to have a basking spot.
I have not even ordered my tank yet and I still had a few questions so I contacted them and with in 50 seconds I had my answer!! I am pleased with how quickly they anwsered and compared to other websites I may not receive an answer for a week sometimes I just don't get one at all!!. Any way, even when I do get my tank and even if it isn't the one for me personally I still highly recommend this.
Purchased this for my blue tongue skink back in September. It's been absolutely perfect! The pvc sides allow for the humidity he needs, the substrate shield keeps all of his mulch neatly inside. I love that it has a screen top that allows me to set my lights on top instead of mounting inside. Overall, very pleased with the product and I would happily recommend it to anyone.
