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.
Just put it together today. I cannot say enough about Zen. Even though there were shipping delays, all of their updates were accurate in regard to shipping information and they were quick to respond to questions without missing a beat. I probably drove Lenny crazy with my messages :) But seriously, the enclosure is well worth it. I have seen some mention the stability issue but bear in mind, this isn't a heavy aquarium. That said, unless you're playing tag around it, it's perfectly stable. Don't think twice ,buy it already!!
It was a long wait but so worth it! My 9 month old bearded dragon Delilah loves her tank always running and climbing. Highly recommend this tank 100%
Do not buy, if you make a mistake and put it together wrong and try to correct that mistake it is impossible disassemble to take these pieces off they’ll break like candy , the product is very cheaply made. And the doors fall apart .
I absolutely love this enclosure. My boy Falcor is one happy beardie. Only issue I have is that within the first week my doors got scratches on them. Kind of a bummer but other than that this is an amazing mansion for my boy.
The one I ordered was great the other the wood was chipped and is beat up looking I have it together now but will be looking else where when I have the money. The one tank is great which is why I'm so sad about the other.
Very happy with my purchase staff was always ready to assist me with all my questions best choice I ever made
The waiting was worth it! My bearded dragon loves her new home :)
Huge tank! Lightweight. Definitely need a rubber mallet and instructional video. Suction cups don’t work on the bamboo walls so keep that in mind. All over I love her forever home! I plan on buying the mat that goes in the tank as well.
Easy to put together and our bearded dragon loves it. Took a while to get it but it was worth it.
First of all, Zen habitats provided really nice customer service. The included video helps you put the habitat together and you won’t get frustrated. It’s very easy to follow and you can do it by yourself! I hate putting things together but this was easy. Shipping was also free. It’s hard to find something that size that ships for free. This habitat saved our beardie, he was very sick and now he has more room to roam and the bamboo Insulates heat better than glass. There’s also no fear of the beardie seeing their reflection and getting angry. I can tell this habitat will also last a long time, and it wasn’t as expensive as other options online. We are really pleased with the product but also the process. It does take awhile to ship, but consider the size and that the shipping is totally free. It’s a great deal. We love this company and will definitely buy from them again when we have More reptiles.
The enclosure looks very nice however some of the brackets are too tight and others are too loose. So when I put it together the ones that were loose would come undone while trying to tighten and pound in the tighter ones using the rubber mallet as directed and in their videos. If I hadn’t waited for three months to receive the cages I would have returned them. Some of the brackets broke and were difficult to remove. The cage looks nice when put together but they are still coming loose even after adding the double stick tape that the videos tell you to loose if the brackets are loose. Overall I’m disappointed when I weight the cost and the time waiting for the cages to arrive.
We decided to upgrade to this enclosure, after our male bearded dragon had spent a few years in a 75 gallon glass tank. It was too narrow for him to turn comfortably.
This habitat took about 3 weeks longer than expected to arrive. However, their customer service is fantastic. I communicated via Facebook messenger. It was relatively easy to assemble, with the rubber mallet. It is very beautiful and definitely so nice and roomy.
My main concern was the strength of the top, as we have cats that loved to lay atop the old one, more for the heat than wanting to eat him.
This one is very strong, and I also feel they could not open the doors alone. They haven’t been able to even get on top of this one yet because it’s so much bigger.
That said, I do feel he sort of misses looking out the side, he enjoyed having a view through the glass and our window. First day he roamed it unhappily… but now seems pretty content. He loves soft stuff so we put a soft bed in there. Suction cups do not hold as well on the wood as they did on the glass.. so hammocks need to be hung.
Overall very happy with this purchase, it looks clean and modern.
We desperately needed to upgrade for our bearded dragon. He is full grown at 23.5 inches and this enclosure is plenty big enough for him to do anything and everything he wants.
It was easy to put together and feels super sturdy! I personally would have like physical directions instead of the video to prevent using the wrong piece for top and bottom in the front, and having to take it apart (which is not easy to do). Other than that one thing it is an amazing enclosure and I would definitely purchase again!!
I love these tanks. Easy to put together for the most part and they look great. Much bigger than my previous tanks because my babies deserve it.
Some good and some bad.
First, the bad: 1) there were no instructions included, 2) the plexiglass is packed in a protective paper that is attached with an adhesive. It wasn't too difficult to remove, but it took some time. I wonder if paper or styrofoam sleeves would be a better choice.
Now, the good: 1) the terrarium was easy to assemble, with help from an online video. The video was well-made and easy to follow. But printed instructions would be nice, in case the customer does not have internet access. 2) it looks great 3) it is spacious. There is room to organize stuff and for my daughter's bearded dragon to move.
All in all, my daughter and I are very pleased with the terrarium. We recommend it.
While it did take a while due to COVID to revive the set up once it arrived it was somewhat easy to put together definitely suggest watching the video for it. Mine did come with 2 corner pieces broken thanks to our fedex guy and the customer service was above expectations & shipped 2 replacements right away which arrived shortly after. I will definitely be buying for my other reptiles
My guy loves his new space.
Worth the wait! I really like this habitat for my growing bearded dragon (Phoenix/Lizzo). She's been in it for about a month now.
It was pretty easy to set up - watch the Youtube video, take your time and go slow as some of the frame pieces and orientation are tricky (and a pain to take apart if you made a mistake). Once it was assembled, it looks great, is super easy to clean and maintain. It's a habitat I am proud to display in my home and Lizzo is thriving in her new space.
This is the best tank ever. Can hang lights. Was totally worth the price. Easy to put together. Happy overall!!
Bearded dragon loves his new habitat! Just wish it was made here in America to support American people and maybe not take so long to get.
I was super excited to get my enclosure after doing tons of research on what would be the best fit for my growing beardie! It was initially on back order, which is understandable because of the shipping issues from COVID. When it finally arrived I set to work on getting it put together and the issues that can arise during setup unfortunately did precede in this case.
I used a rubber mallet (in fact, I absolutely had to for some pieces) and had to use complete brute strength to get some of the pieces together. In the end, a couple of the corners simply will NOT close up neatly entirely. This is because some sides are loose and did not need a rubber mallet, and some were very tight and did, so in trying to force it together it just keeps knocking the other side loose. I had to give up. Also, I didn’t realize until I was finished putting it together, but flakes of wood were all over the interior of the enclosure. I realized this was due to putting it together, parts chipped off. It is purely cosmetic, and it’s on the inside towards the very top, so I’m not too pressed about it, but still sucks a bit. I have attached pictures of both aforementioned issues. There is absolutely no way I would ever be able to take this thing apart again, too.
Also, be warned that when you are using the rubber mallet, not only is it LOUD, but when you are putting the screen top on, it is extremely loud. My ears rang like a flash bang went off next to my head and it took about 5 minutes for my hearing to come back (only to be destroyed again because I had to keep hitting it to get it snug).
The paper on the plexiglass was not as bad as some have made it out to be, too. While you t did come off in quite a few pieces, I did not need a razor as some have mentioned. It just took about 15-20 mins.
Altogether, putting it together and the defects aside, it is a stunning enclosure and I love it, so does my beardie. I have only gotten compliments on it, and keeping it clean so far has been an absolute breeze. I don’t know how I ever survived using an enclosure that opens from the top, this thing is incredible. I was able to get my UVB light strip fastened securely on the beams at the top, and while I did need to get a higher wattage basking bulb to hit the temps I need, the temps were met in the end.
I’m not sure if I would necessarily recommend it to friends, only because I think there are still some manufacturing issues that need to be sorted out, but maybe in a few years once they get those issues down, it would be a no-brainer to trust the company to meet all of my enclosure needs!
Great size terrarium for my bearded dragon, and great quality!
Overall, the habitat itself meets all the needs of both my bearded dragon and myself. It was fairly easy to assemble, although not as easy as the instructional video might let on, and it provides my bearded dragon with ample space to roam around. My only two complaints are that the acrylic doors are easily scratched and that the aluminum shields the interior of the enclosure from too much heat from head lamps, although this can be remedied by using smaller light fixtures for the interior of the enclosure.
LOVE this amazing habitat, and more importantly, so does Stinky! Lots of room to roam and hide. We aren’t done decorating yet, but the mat is a perfect fit (totally recommend getting one!) and the whole thing looks so clean and inviting!
Well worth the wait! Our rescue, Spike, had been in too small of an enclosure for most of his life and now he gets his big beautiful Zen to thrive in. The Zen mat is so easy to keep clean, and the enclosure was super easy to put together. I wish we would have ordered the glass doors, the acrylic ones got scratched up within days of receiving our habitat. We will probably end up ordering the glass soon. Overall, we're really happy we made this purchase.
The overall product was great! It’s the perfect size for our adult Beardie. The set up was slightly challenging and didn’t slide in as easy as the video showed, but once it was set it up it turned out amazing!
Great product. Bad customer service experience. My order was placed apparently while they updated their website, which meant I was not contacted about a different shipping date (I had assumed it was the one, you know, posted on the website) until a month later and my package didn't arrive. I had to message them who did nothing to make up for their shitty advertising- UPDATES, people, updates. You want customers? Don't make them feel screwed by saying it was an advertisement screw up. Especially on a site you manage yourself.
Enclosure is great but the time it took to get here was not!!!!! Ordered april 15 got it late June
Extremely easy to assemble. Our 12 year old was able to follow the videos and assemble 95% of it without our help. Great customer support and communication in regards to delivery information. Enclosure is good looking and well built.
Got it for my bearded dragon- Angelus. She loves the new space and is so much more active after moving her from her 40gallon.
It's so large & he has so much room to run! It's so easy to keep clean & it's never ending in decoration choices!
When I finally got the tank together, it worked well. However, it came damaged. Corners were broken off. Also, the end pieces did not fit in the side pieces as easily as on the video. We had to really hammer, shaving the end pieces down in the process.
Absolutely love the 4x2x2. So much more room and easy to put together
Was beyond excited for this tank to come in and I am still waiting months later. If you want something for your bearded now because he/she’s in a to small tank. Save yourself time order elsewhere.
P.s. When I do get the tank I will of course state my options on the tank but from the looks of it. To expensive for the time you have to wait to receive it, you have to put it together yourself which some people’s resulted in breaking which Only god knows when they will send out replacement pieces.
Long wait for the arrival, just over three months. I was kept informed of the delays, none due by Zen though. The pandemic was hard on everyone even my dragon! The Zen 4x2x2 enclosure was a great step-up from a forty gallon habitat. I chose Zen because of the "open viewing doors and non-reflecting panels."
So far so good! Our little girl loves her new enclosure and it was super simple to put together! My only complaint would be that the material scratches when you slide the doors but its not even really an issue. Otherwise its an absolutely stellar terrarium.
Wish there were more options for enclosures. Waited 2.5 months. Company really needs to get its act together.
The online instructions are a great help but watch before putting together not while. Some parts are not named till the end
I love my new enclosures! They look great and where fairly easy to put together, my husband ordered these cheap sliding door locks from Amazon to keep our king snake from escaping.
I was amazed at how fast I was able to set it up, very easy !.
The hardest part was taking the damn paper off of the plexi-glass :)
Sturdy and Walter LOVES it.
I hung my Carolina Light up with no problem, cut tile for the floor, and it holds temp very well.
The only way it would be better if it was just a bit cheaper, BUT you get what you pay for.. and its worth it !
The cage is gorgeous! So much nicer than any other enclosure we've owned. Easily put together. Very easy to feed and clean out.
Literally the best thing I have spent my money on for my beardie baby. He loves it
Our bearded dragon likes his cage
Love the terrarium
Great product, easy assembly and very helpful and friendly customer service. It took a while to receive the tank from the time of order, but communication was great and it was worth the wait.
Great product easy to set up. My dragon loves it.
Easy to build and when I had part of it break they were quick to respond and help!
Nice sized incloser for my painted turtle. Easy to assemble and looks great in my living room.
The habitat is beautiful and my Lulu is much happier in it! You could say that she is "zen" even.. It was easy to put together, set up, I have no complaints whatsoever on my purchase and I am very glad that I made this decision. I think my only concern would be is the doors. They scratch on each other leaving marks on one another. They are placed in the correct positions and everything, so it isn't that. It just leaves a very unlikable mark on each door. Otherwise, I'm happy with my purchase.
Thank you Zen Habitats.
Parts easily break and if you put together wrong corners break when taking apart
This tank is so crazy. It’s HUGE. The assembly was super easy and result is amazing. I’m so glad I got this tank. And if your thinking about getting one. DO IT. Bearded dragons can’t live in 40 gallons there whole life and this is a great upgrade
This enclosure is perfect. Amazing price for such a large enclosure. Super easy to put together. MAKE SURE you have a rubber mallet. No other tools needed. My bearded dragon is probably still freaking out he has so much room to run around. And the top screen…. No one told me how nice the screen top is. Not flimsy at all. I’m in love.
It's been three months, and I finally have my Terrarium. I do actually feel like I over payed for the product, but were beyond that point now. Having waited for three months, I followed the instructions to ensure that it wouldn't be put together wrong. However, following the instructions of using a rubber mallet, one of the joints immediately broke. So instead of risking the other joints, I sanded them down so that they PROPERLY FIT into the aluminum frame.
While I do like the product, I wont buy anything from these guys again. After numerous delays, (after the near 60 day initial wait), and now seeing how cheap some of the materials are, $320.00 feels like a drastic amount to ask for.
It took me a bit to put the first one together by myself, but I am also very short so the long ends were almost taller than me, was definitely easier with two people. I love the way they turned out! One was for my king snake and I worried about her figuring out how to open the door, we ordered slide locks from Amazon and they worked perfectly!
Roger loves it- more decorating needed but he is so happy and much more activity
Price is a bit high for the quality of material, on piece of the back was damaged but usable upon arrival. Overall it's much bigger than anything else I've been able to find, lightweight, and looks nice.
Pros: Our beardie loves his new habitat. It's plenty big and easy to assemble, if you have a rubber mallet handy. Staff really friendly and prompt.
Shipping took a very long time.
Rubber mallet should be included for assembly.
It would be nice to have directions printer or the two links detail to easily get to directions.
Best customer service ever!!
I’m so happy my beardies love this cage
This is SO much bigger than the old 40 gallon my beardie was in. Seeing them side by side really brought home what an awesome upgrade this was.
I'll admit I was a little skeptical while I was putting it together since some of the legs weren't easy to fit into place, even with a mallet. If I'd been alone I'm not sure I would have been able to get them in, but luckily my fiancé and his friend were able to help me and hit them into place. Just something to think about if like me you don't have much upper body strength!
That said, once the enclosure was put together I loved it, and I plan on buying more for my snakes! The size is just so much better and the front opening doors have greatly improved my quality of life.
We got my princess beardie this new house about a month ago. She loves it so much! She was in a 40 gallon tank before and it was too small. This is perfect for her. Lots of room. And I love all the storage underneath.
I am very happy with it.
Thank you zen habitats.
Everyone at zen habitats are super nice and always willing to help. There enclosures are hands down amazing for the price and size. The only thing i would have to say thar would need to be changed is how long it takes for u to get your enclosures. I have 2 now and both taken over 3 months to come in the mail. Otherwise , you will be happy if u get or try zen habitats.
I love my zen habitats 4'x2'x2' wood panel enclosure it was really easy to assemble! And my bearded dragon loves it! Lots of room for my bearded dragon tor run around and it holds temps really well and it's nice having the sliding doors on front!
Super super easy to put together, barely had to use a mallet. 10/10 and my uromastyx loves it!
Beautiful tank. Had a bit of trouble with the poles fitting together, had to rubber mallet all but about 2 of them. But, Posiedon loves all the space he has.
Just what it said, easy to assemble and well thought out.
I ordered two and both my beardies love their new zen habitats
Daryl loves his new tank! It is certainly an upgrade from his old 50 gallon. It retains heat nicely and I absolutely love the sliding glass doors. So much easier to clean his tank this way, and I can take him out more comfortably too. Only thing I dislike is that the suction cups for his hammock don't stick very well to the walls, so I will be mounting damage-free wall hooks instead so he doesn't fall down. Will be needing much more decor now that he has so much more space! Very happy I decided to make the investment in a better tank and happier future for my beardie!
Great as always!!
Easy to put together! Clean and safe! Love it!
Very easy to build- my daughter and I put together in under one hour. Easy access and views of our dragon, Hufflepuff.
I'm so happy with it so much. Anything I had a problem with I just took a pic and they sent a new part right away.
Very easy to assemble grate talking pice
Support team was great with updates since covid delayed shipping. Super easy to put together and my beardie has stopped glass surfing completely!
My beardie loves his new habitat, I will probably be getting another beardie and ordering another one for it too
Amazing customer service, and an amazing enclosure for my Beardie girl. She was upgraded from a 40 gallon enclosure to the amazing 4x2x2 and she loves it! It was super easy to assemble! Thank you Zen Habitats for an amazing home for my girl.
It’s a beautiful enclosure for my special girl. It’s not as easy to put together as the video makes it seem though. Apart from that it’s amazing.
Well made, easy to build, affordable, ideal for my beardie! Thank you so much!
Worth the wait, very well built, love it, so does larry.
Not difficult to put together. The video and written instructions were fantastic. My ball python is really enjoying all the extra space he has now.
This is a great enclosure for my bearded dragon. It stays warm for him, and he feels protected since three sides are not open. It’s also huge so he can continue to grow into it. Definitely worth every penny. I already have the mat and the stand on the list to buy from them next!
My baby girl Norbert absolutely loves her new Zen Habitat. She is so much calmer and way less stressed. I used to never be able to keep her in her old terrarium because she stressed out to much over her own reflection. Now with the wood walls in her Zen Habitat, that stress is gone. She sleeps and eats so much better now, and loves getting back into her Zen when it’s time. Thank you Zen Habitat, for helping my baby girl be more zen.
Great cage, great customer service, would recommend to anyone seeking a fair priced 120gallon tank
I would HIGHLY recommend this enclosure to anyone! The assembly was super easy, and as recommended, make sure to have a rubber mallet handy. My beardie went from a 40 gallon to this gorgeous 120 gallon! Soooooooo worth the wait!
We both like it. Huge and sturdy. Although difficult to put together it looks nice.
One of the biggest issues I have with it is the plexiglass or glass on the front. I've had it for maybe two or three weeks and its scratched up from the doors rubbing. If theres something i can get to prevent this or a place to buy new glass Id give it 5 stars
I purchased a 4x2 stand and enclosure (pretty expensive). The product took a very long time to receive (several weeks). Once received and inspected two of the panels were broken in the corners, 1 dented aluminum bar and one of the plastic corner pieces was cracked. Since we were in a hurry to get it together and set up for our dragon prior to having to take a trip for a week, I had to make due with what I had. Contacted and sent photos to customer support who was very pleasant to work with but ultimately didn't have time to wait for replacements and $25.00 wasn't going to cover the time it took to get the items and condition of the enclosure pieces. Overall not pleased with the delivery time, cost and quality.
The initial wait for the product after purchase was longer than anticipated, due to a backorder it seems, but I'd say it was worth the wait. The enclosure is great quality and relatively simple to put together. Speaking of assembly, I accidently put a corner piece on incorrectly and broke it trying to remove it. After I explained this to their customer service, they sent a replacement corner piece with no hesitation. Speaks volumes on their customer service. Would definitely order again in the future if I decide to add another reptile to my family.
Our beardie loves his new home!
Very nice. Rango loves it.easy to clean.
I think for the cost this is waaayyyy toooo expensive. It is a ikea project and you have to be careful moving it or it will come apart.
Will never recommend anyone to buy this and I got sucked in and bought the cage and bottom and the top.
It took about two months for me to receive my enclosure. The customer support was great throughout the process. However, assembly proved to be much more difficult than I had thought. I broke an assembly piece and scratched the acrylic mirrors which were covered with the most annoying cardboard protective sleeve. You absolutely need a rubber mallet for assembly and I did not have one. The cage seems ok. So 3 stars because 1.) it took forever to get to my house 2.) set up was way more intense than they make you think it will be 3.) excellent customer support.
I LOVE IT! This enclosure is so spacious and my bearded dragon loves it! From a 40 gallon to a 120 gallon! I would definitely recommend!
I have had this cage for 3-4 months. Easy to build & set up lighting, heating and temp regulation. Wonderful price to. Me and my beardie can’t say enough positive things.
I love this so much better than our black trim 40 gallon. It was well worth the price.
I have a 4'x2'x2' enclosure with sliding doors and an enclosure stand to go with it. Have had for about 9 months. First off, the customer service response is what turned me on to Zen habitats. They quickly answered my questions about their enclosure and I like that they have a video for assembly available online.
My likes: The lightweight, interlocking system to allow for deconstructing later on. Pretty cool stuff. Love the bars at the top to anchor stuff to the ceiling. Overall the design is beautiful and well thought out.
A couple things really irk me about this enclosure and stand that I got. First, I think it is misleading to say that the walls are bamboo coated particle board. I probably should have asked how thick the walls would be, but I kind of assumed the particle board would be encapsulated in real bamboo instead of a printed paper/laminate. When it came I was surprised to see otherwise. The website claims that the wood keeps more heat in than glass, but since it is so thin I did not notice it holding heat better than my glass enclosure this winter. If I had known, I probably would have gotten a PVC enclosure instead. Also, shortly after putting my enclosure together, one of my glass doors started making a grinding sound when I open it. It still functions despite that.
With the stand, it moves so much! Every time I go to move something in my beardie's enclosure or clean it, it shakes like crazy! She is a good sport about it, but I feel bad for shaking her world. For $90, I definitely expected a stand that doesn't move like that.
Overall, my beardie loves the enclosure and it looks great. If the enclosure and stand had cost less money, these things would not bother me so much. So, it's a pretty good enclosure, but unfortunately is not the forever home I had hoped for. I wish I was leaving a better review right now, because I do appreciate the great ideas and great effort put in to make us reptile folks happy.
Easy setup and love the way it displays my beloved reptiles. Will purchase again!
this tank is absolutely a case of getting what you pay for. the pieces don't fit together (YES i followed the video and written instructions) the substrate guard falls down constantly, and today after it fell out AGAIN I realized the tank itself was falling apart at the sides even more so the substrate guard doesnt even fit well enough to stay standing up. save your money, otherwise youll end up out $300 with a tank that cant even hold itself together.
This is so well made was easy to install and keep. Also great for the price, would highly recommend!
Had a great experience from start to finish. Ordering and set up was very simple, and anytime I had a question there was someone ready to assist. And our dragon love his new apartment.
