The 4'x2'x2' Wood Panel Reptile Enclosure by Zen Habitats is great for desert lizards, snakes, tortoises, and other small animals that require a dry environment. Zen Habitats Reptile Enclosure uses 1” anodized aluminum, bamboo finished wood panels, front sliding/removable acrylic doors, a galvanized steel screen top, 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 Zen Habitats 4’x2’x2’ Reptile Enclosures?
Large enclosures – 120-gallon equivalent. Many reptiles thrive when given room to run, jump, and climb. 4’x2’x2’ reptile enclosures are 3 times 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 finished wood panels retain heat better than glass. Wood panels have been shown to retain heat up to 10x better than glass.
Substrate Shield included. All Zen Habitats come with an optional substrate shield for those who use loose substrate.
Worth the wait! Wish I ordered this earlier for my girl, Rex. She is thriving in all this space. I had her in a 55 gallon fish tank that was the same length as this but 18 inches wide instead of 24. That extra width made all the difference! Plus the front opening instead of going in from the top is a game changer. So easy to get to Rex for me or even my kids. Plus, cleaning is so much easier from the front instead of the top. I also suggest the zen mat for the base. Also makes it easier to keep it nice and clean!
She loved it!
We had issues with tightness of the pieces fitting together. It's not as tight & sturdy as we'd like. Also, the double sided tape for the inside guard piece doesn't hold the piece well at all, but ours isn't cut to specification either. It's about 1/2" short. We made it work though.
So far so good. With the mat, super easy to clean. Doesn't feel as sturdy as I would like, but sturdy enough and lightweight. My guy really seems to like it which is the most important thing!
I love love LOVE this tank!!! I rescued a bearded dragon and he desperately needed a larger enclosure. It’s bare right now but I will be adding more things to it soon! It was super easy to set up and SO worth the money!!
When getting our baby bearded dragon, we decided to invest in her full-sized enclosure. Zen Habits has excellent reviews online, and this enclosure has lived up to the hype! It arrived quickly and was easy to assemble. The front sliding doors make it easy to access our dragon, and it is a breeze to take them off when you need to do a thorough cleaning. We also got the base which is also sturdy and lightweight; I highly recommend getting both!
Thanks, Zen Habitats!
The enclosure is fantastic! It's beautiful to look at, well-engineered with quality materials.
Easy peasy to assemble.
It arrived fast –– the day after I ordered it! Wow!
We –– and Beardy –– couldn't be happier!
I bought the enclosure as a gift for my grandson. I was able to watch him and my son-in-law assemble it via a Discord session. It went together well with no issues and a follow up text showed his bearded dragon chilling in his hammock in his new diggs.
Great mansion for my young beardie. Lots of room and solid construction. I got a stand for it and the kids love their new buddy
Love this habitat! Great service with great shipping methods. Very satisfied and so is Spike our bearded dragon!
I broke one of the corner joints of a zen habitat I was building for my daughter. I contacted Zen Habitats and they immediately sent me a new corner piece at no charge. It was pretty amazing! The enclosure looks beautiful.
I love it get beardie soon
the box was not good & one piece was bent
My dragon loves his new home! I was able to put it together rather quickly and it looks beautiful! I am so unbelievably happy with my choice to get this habitat over others on the market!
I love this enclosure! Super easy to out together. 2 small downsides:
1. The paper that comes on the acrylic doors takes a TON of patience to get off. Definitely not easy to peel off.
2. It would be nice if the kit came with something to buff out the scratches your acrylic doors will inevitably get when your beardy goes glass surfing. I ended up getting something on Amazon that was recommended, but would have preferred it came from zen.
Other than that, it came quick and the videos for assembly were great! I followed along. 10/10 would recommend again!
My daughter loves it for her Skink
The cage overall itself is OK. A little overpriced. My issue is with shipping and packaging. All the PVC panels are wrapped in plastic. And that plastic does not come off in one piece. You have to pick and scrape in order to get the plastic off. If not, it’s in your reptiles cage. The fit and finish of the frame is not 100% perfect. You have to bend and bang to get it into place. Not to mention my package was delivered to the wrong address the first time. However the customer service is very well. They issued a replacement within two days and thankfully I got the second one. I just think that even the base enclosure for the entry level is a little overpriced for what you get.
Cage is fine, but construction was difficult due to a stuck joint that ended up breaking during our attempt to remove it from one of the frame pieces. However, customer service was *excellent* with response time and sending us a replacement part.
Exactly as described, easy assembly, light weight!! Beardie loves it, it’s perfect! Would highly recommend for our lizard friends!!!
Love this enclosure so much! Easy to assemble, and has a unique look. Will definitely buy from Zen again!!
Wonderful product and service
It's so much bigger than my beardies past tank and she loves it
I like the look of this enclosure quite a bit but there's definitely some cons
-Bamboo texture looks nice
-assembly was really easy
-screen top was decent quality
-rubber cord hole for cable management
-Acrylic is such a horrible choice for reptile enclosures imo and it sucks here as well. Acrylic just scratches SO easily. Day one of cleaning and it's scratched which just really sucks and is definitely the biggest con for me
-some of the joints fit together really lose and some fit together really tight which makes the final built less sturdy than it would otherwise be
It's a beautiful enclosure and very functional. Assembly does require a rubber mallet. The glass does not appear to be non-reflective as advertised. Overall a great investment for our special boy.
Super easy and I love it
We love this enclosure! Bigger, more affordable, better quality, & nicer looking than anything else we saw on the market. Easy to assemble using the instructional video. Excellent cus
All 4 of my Bearded Dragons couldn't be happier . Definitely take your time and watch the video . Rewind if necessary. Love all the space.
Was easy to build. It came with one broken part but customer service replaced it quickly.
My bearded dragon is very happy in her new enclose it gives her plenty of room to walk around. The only problem I have with this enclose is how tight the corner pieces were to hammer in and the wood panels chip real easily. The overall design is very nice to look at. The price was affordable! Customer service is excellent their is always a live person on the website to talk to you that gets back to you within minutes.
Very nice enclosure! Only complaint is that it is a little flimsy. When cleaning the enclosure, it really shakes around and you kind of have to hold it in place while cleaning. Otherwise no complaints, my beardy loves it!
Happy lizards. Sexy setup. Love it. Literally nothing I don't like.
This habitat was basically everything I expected from the good reviews as far as function goes, but did have some issues.
Smaller issue: Some of the metal supports were slightly bent on arrival which made assembly a little harder and left a few miniscule gaps between pieces.
Slightly bigger issue: the door panels have a tiny bit of roughness on the edges and scrape against each other which is leaving etch marks. I try to be careful with it since noticing the issue, but at this price point I feel like this shouldn’t be something to worry about. Picture is of the etched door
This cabinet is great. It’s sturdy and well made just like the enclosures. I like that it has a “bottom” unlike the stacking dividers. I keep our dubia colony’s container in it and it’s awesome at maintaining their temperature.
My little man loves it!
Received my enclosure today !!!! I couldn’t be happier with it !!!! Thank you Zen Habitat !!!! My beardie Mushu absolutely LOVES it !!!!
My bearded and I love it. He is a lot more active since his move. Holds heat really well. The only issue I am having is hot side humidity doesn't like to stay above 20% without a humidifier but that could just be because it's winter in SD. Definitely recommend and really want the 2x2x2 one for my crestie.
There was a little bit of damage and I contacted customer service they were very quick in their responses, gave me advice for my issues and options as far as refunds or doing a return. I appreciate how professional and understanding they were about the situation. Yes the damage was disappointing but the manner in which they handled it made up for it.
I’m a little disappointed bc I figured at almost 400$ the quality would be a little bit better. Almost every piece I received had some amount of damage. But I still put it together hoping those things wouldn’t show no matter if I use a rubber mallet as suggested or not to of the top rails that hold the screen won’t stay together the plastic corner piece slips out. But I do really like the size and the materials it’s made out of. I couldn’t figure out hour to attach more then one picture or I would have included all the damage. Waiting to hear back from customer service.
My bearded dragon absolutely loves her new apartment, I upgraded straight from a 20L tank for my juvenile bearded dragon and she is thriving and so happy in her new home. it’s huge but really doesn’t take up all that much space and assembly took about 20 minutes by myself including the stand and was pretty straight forward
I absolutely love my Zen Habitat! Planning on converting all of my reptiles enclosures to Zens and I’m super excited. Lightweight, durable, perfect sizing and aesthetically pleasing!
Wonderful product. Easy set up, light weight, easy to move. 10/10.
We love the zen enclosure! It was easy to assemble and looks great! Gave our bearded dragon "Ashy Larry" a huge amount of room. We are very pleased with our purchase. If I had to find a negative it would be that Larry scratched the acrylic doors up within a few days but that was to be expected. When we need another enclosure this will be the way we go.
Upgraded from a 40 gallon open front glass viv to the Zen 4x2x2. I absolutely love it. It's easier to maintain the correct Temps and humidity. And Dragon loves the extra room to move around. Was super easy to put together.
The first one I received was bent and messed up and wouldn't go together, customer service was good and they sent me a new one. This one was also messed up. No matter how hard we hammered the pieces together they wouldn't fit. The plastic pieces were too big for the metal bits. The video shows that. I got it together enough to make it kinda work but its not fully in place at all still gaps all over which really sucks. I wanted to complain and return again but I was so done at that point and didn't want to wait another week for another one to show up and be possibly faulty again. I recommend doing better quality checks for the price of these things.
Got it as a gift to my granddaughter. It was easy for her to put it together, looked well made and she was happy with its looks and functionality.
Looks nice and well made. My granddaughter put it together and really likes it .
This is the perfect habitat for my little bearded dragon. I’m so glad I decided to buy a nice one. Easy to put together and looks amazing.
My little guy Fred loves his new home!
I have the Zen mat in all 4 habitats. Easy to wipe off. Fits really good
My granddaughter has a 1 1/2 year old bearded dragon. This set up is amazing. Very easy access and so much space for him to run. Best investment I have made for him.
Our dragon, Phineas, loves his new Zen Habitat enclosure! It was well made and fairly easy to put together after watching the video from the website. We live in South Florida so humidity was always a concern in his old class enclosure but the Zen enclosure with the bamboo walls has stayed below 40 percent since we started using it! I would highly recommend this enclosure!
The enclosure is beautiful however, assembly was hard and took me hours to hammer(with a rubber mallet) everything together. Some pieces were to large and refused to snap into place. Anything with suction cups will not stick and I’ve tried everything. The size is great but there a few things here and there that could be improved on.
My bearded dragon, Cornelia, loves her new enclosure! I can't wait to get one of these enclosures for my ball python!
I had upgraded my beardies tank from a 40 gallon to this 120 gallon and he was in absolute heaven. There is so much room for him to run around and it is very easy to keep clean! I definitely recommend this tank! I honestly wish I would have bought this from the begining!
4 x 2 x 2 is awesome! Easy enough for 75yr old great grandmother to assemble in 45 minutes!
There is so much room in there. Took a bit to get lighting basking area right . I now have 4 of them. Bearded Dragons love them.
Easy enough to put together with the helpful video and it's beautiful!!
Casper loves his new Zen.he is only 3m buy he deserves the best of the best.. Great quality and your MUST get the zen mat
We absolutely LOVE our habitat and cabinet! I am happy we purchased both together. Its 120 gallons and our bearded dragon loves it so much. The storage cabinet below is open and spacious and hides everything nicely. This companies customer service is the best I have ever experienced! They take calls or you can use the online chat. I am happy with my experience with them. Our beardy is happy in his forever enclosure too! Thanks so much Zen Habitats!
Once you got the method down very easy to put together. Hold temperatures nice and well designed
I got this enclosure for my Leopard Gecko's bioactive set up. I love it and have zero regrets about going big for her, she uses every bit of space she can reach
I've assembled a few of these and every time it's pretty easy. The first time took me maybe 2 hours because I have a hard time following directions in general, but now I can do it in about 30 minutes. If you can assemble basic Ikea furniture, you can handle this.
The enclosure is much stronger than it seems when you first put it together. At first I thought it felt a little flimsy, but even with 6" of soil, several rocks, branches, and a cork background on 3 sides I have minimal bowing. I think the bowing I do have could be resolved by adding a few more support bars which is pretty easy.
A couple of suggestions for anyone buying this:
-The rubber mallet makes assembly MUCH easier. Spend the $10 on one, it's worth it.
-My Leopard Gecko can fit in the gap between one door and the substrate shield. Two days after she moved in she got stuck in there somehow (she was fine, but it was a whole thing). If your animal is a similar size: Seal the gap with weatherstripping, tubing, or get a taller substrate shield so the space isn't accessible. Honestly even shoving in a piece of cardboard or something would work fine.
-If you have heavy substrate, make a platform so you can move the enclosure easily. Just screw 4-8 heavy duty casters into a 2x4 piece of 3/4" thick plywood and you're done :)
-If you stick some USB powered CPU fans on top and have them run a few times per day, you get better air circulation. This really helps in an arid bioactive set up.
Zumi and I are very happy with his Zen Enclosure! It’s so versatile and you can make it anything you want!
Fast shipping and everything as expected. Working great for my northern blue tongue skink. Assembly was simple.
My son set it up. He had no issues. It was fun adding and rearranging the various items. And our pet beardie seems very pleased.
I got two of the 4x2x2 wood panel cages along with a an enclosure stand, and it's alright it gets the job done. It was light weight and easy to put together, but being stacked on each other it's not very stable while I don't think anything's going to fall off the whole set-up sways when I have to do something like open the doors or clean the enclosure. The wait times when I bought mine were ridiculous and would keep getting extended by months, the team communicated well though and would let me know and answer my questions about arrival.
Love! Will be adding a stackable tank soon!
Our beardie is loving his new Zen Habitat - he has so much more space and has been exploring more (when he's not brumating :D). Easy to put together!
So much more room for my bearded dragons! They seem really happy. Super easy to set up with the video! Definitely will be buying from this company in the future
It’s great! My bearded dragon loves it. However, definitely watch the assembly directions. My husband just went for it and threw common sense out the window and broke a corner piece with the mallet. Don’t be him.
This product is highly cost effective!! Overall, I would say the enclosure could be significantly more sturdy. I worry about the bottom panel in particular because of how heavy substrate can be. Although, the plastic corner pieces seem to work pretty well.
Love it! Super fast shipping easy to put together love the size of it ☺️☺️. We accidentally broke a corner piece putting it together so I called customer service and in 3 days I had a replacement piece for free. Love this customer service will definitely do business with them again!!
I love the ease of putting the enclosure together and the sturdiness of it! My dragon is very happy!
This cage is great. The size and reinforced screen top work great for my bearded dragon. I did add a few pieces of 1/16" adhesive foam to the outside edges of the track where the sliding doors stop and also where the knob on the inner door would hit the other door. This helps quiet down the doors when sliding open or closing the doors. Overall a great cage for any large reptile.
Absolute cakewalk to put together. It looks amazing, and my beardie is SO happy having all this space!! 100% would purchase this again.
When I first got it I was unsure because two pieces had chipped corners. However once I put it all together it was fine! Me and Phoenixx love it so much! Thank you for the beautiful enclosure for my baby I plan on buying another for my other dragon Marley.
I got this tank for my blue tongue skink Slinky, and she uses every bit of her space! she loves to dig more than anything, and this tank provides her so much room to do that. it also holds heat and humidity really well for her so far. when the outside temps started to drop, I had to fiddle with my bearded dragons' tanks to get the temps right again, but the zen habitats tank didn't need any changing at all, so I'm really happy with it in that regard.
it also arrived super quick! now, I'll admit I'm not much for putting things together, and I hate having to assemble stuff. but this tank was actually super easy to put together. the video instructions are great too!
honestly, I think I'm gonna start recommending these tanks to people in the future, and I might end up getting another someday for one of my beardies. they're expensive, but they're worth the price in my opinion. just because you CAN keep a lizard in a 40 gallon, doesn't mean you shouldn't provide more, so I love Zen Habitats for providing tanks in bigger sizes. I find my lizards seem so much more active as I've upgraded their enclosures :D
I love it, definitely has a lot of space. The only issue I have is the boards and metal pieces aren’t flush with each other in some spots so makes for an area for the bugs to squeeze in between and can be difficult to get them out sometimes.
Love it! And so does our bearded dragon!
We got this for our house for when our daughter and her bearded dragon come to visit. I like it a lot better than the glass one she has.
Love how easy it was to put together, I did it along with the video and didn't have any problems at all. The box came completely beat up but the way it was packed there wasn't any damage to the product at all. Great enclosure for my Uromastyx, plenty of space and the cross bars are perfect to hang your lights from. I'm sure I'll be back to purchase another one and no doubt a cabinet for the bottom. I'll also be buying the mat for inside my enclosure as soon as I get some extra money. I highly recommend buying an enclosure from this company.
Best habitat ever! Easy to configure, easy to clean and my beardie LOVES her new home.
The enclosure is perfect and my bearded dragon loves it. It’s the perfect size for a full grown bearded dragon. Customer service is great and answers back promptly.
Very happy with this cage! My biggest concern, and when shopping around it seemed to be some others also was the spacer on top not having a top piece to enclose the lights for a more finished look. I reached out to Zen and they had a great solution. They sold me an additional panel for the top a 4x2 that just set on top and it worked perfect. I spoke to one sales person that said it wouldn’t work, that it would fall through, but the second person said no problem. So I’m here to say it works and it looks great! Most importantly my bearded dragon loves it!
Assemble easy and the quality is great. Will definitely be buying another for out albino ball python as soon as she is big enough.
Working progress but easy to build ! Only thing was one of the pieces was cracked but they took care of me ! They quickly sent a replacement for that piece without any hassle , workers respond super fast and we’re very nice ! Item itself I love it my bearded dragon Phoenix sure does Aswell. Thank you workers :)
The vivarium is pretty nice looking but all the metal parts were extremely loose and the floor wasn't air tight and needs to be caulked.
Stepdad had to take a drill for metal and create screw holds so it wouldn't fall apart when picked up, bumped, moved, or looked at wrong.
The doors are nice and have a very simple lock for any escape artists you may have. The paneling is pretty and there are three reinforcement bars below the top mesh which is a very nice feature. The wood is pretty and hopefully will help keep my lizard insulated.
If you don't have a lot of money to burn buy it on sale or not at all.
Great products and fun to build
Please share my photo. Leroy LOVES his zen habitat!

Great habitat for our baby beardie
Since getting my beardie, I knew I wanted a Zen. And we are not disappointed! Quick shipping and very helpful through email. From start to finish a wonderful shopping experience and my Bud is loving the space! Will continue to recommend!
Love this enclosure. It's very spacious
Absolutely love it. He loves it as well!
It was a pain in the bum to put together using the directions and the video on the website. One of my connecter pieces broke and the side panels came chipped. My tortoise very quickly scratched the acrylic beyond belief which was a major bummer-maybe not good for any creature that digs or has nails. THAT SAID, it is super lightweight and looks fantastic. I do plan on buying more and love the overall design, I just think it's a bit overpriced for how easily breakable the enclosure is. Again, still worth buying if you want a nice pretty enclosure with the option to expand or build upon!
Great quality and pretty easy to put together once you get the pattern down.
Love it and so does my girl
Nuri loves her Zen habitat. I can’t wait to get more for the rest of my babies.
So happy with this tank. It came 2 days after it was ordered and our little guy absolutely loves it. It was easy to put together and the YouTube video was great. Very spacious and beautiful!
My Zen Habitats Enclosure is amazing! It was super easy to assemble and my little guy has never been so happy. He's got tons of room to do zoomies, there's enough room and it's the perfect dimensions for a proper heat gradient. I couldn't be happier.
