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.
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.
We love it thank you
Pickle loves her habitat! Took no time at all for her to get adjusted. Setup only took like 10 minutes, and when I realized just how freakin' huge this thing was I had to go out and get more decorations. She looks so small in there !
Anyway, great house for my little scaleygirl. Highly recommend it.
So glad I came across Zen habitats in my search for a new terrarium. I absolutely love this new home for my beardie girl Myah! I had a 40 gallon glass tank and She needed a larger habitat as she’s grown more than 18inches now and this is perfect! It's also so much lighter than larger glass terrariums.Thanks so much for making it affordable and easy to assemble. She loves it too!
amazing enclosure for a great price happy with it!
Pretty easy to assemble. It’s sturdy and our bearded dragon loves it! I like the way it looks.
margaret l z.
So excited to have this habitat for my beardie!!! He is so happy
Again same thing!! My other review for the bottom I forgot was for just the bottom, but both pieces are very nice and well worth it! We had to put the cabinet locks on it because we have a 2 1/2 year old who would like to get into the tank if we didn’t put on locks! Lol!
Great customer service, easy build, and the tank itself looks nice on the eyes
Really loving this new tank from Zen Habitats. It was super easy to assemble and feels absolutely string enough to hold our bearded dragon and his river rocks and other decor. The only challenge I'm facing is getting the lighting just right for him. The size is great but I feel somewhat limited on light mounting options. I was about to hang the usb florescent inside the tank with small chain and s-hooks from hardware store. Right now I have the basking light on top of screen. The temp seems to be right but it doesn't really feel like a basking spot as much as a basking area. Otherwise, I really love this tank, it's beautiful.
It’s okay. I don’t really have much else to say...
I (and my Bearded dragon) LOVE his new habitat! It’s plenty big and so beautiful!
I purchased my enclosure and set it up (120 gallons), looked great until I saw circular scratches on the doors, then I opened them and got scratches from side to side (door edges were sharp enough to scratch). I called customer service and I was told they would not replace them. They would sell me new ones, they even offered to upgrade me too glass for $100. I don’t think that’s very fair. Overall it’s a great enclosure. I would buy another one with glass doors and put plastic edge on them (I would use the edge protectors that are used for fish tank lid edges.
I love it! My beardie does too. Had to get a new adult sized tank set up since my beardie was getting big. There's plenty of space to move around in any direction now and it's been great watching him explore his new home.
Setup was easy and quick. There was no hassle and the inner bars on the screen made setting up any lighting super easy.
Upgraded from a 40 gal and I wouldn’t go back only weighs 50 pounds and sturdy super easy to put together you will NEED a rubber mallet took me 20 minutes to assemble the assembly video helped tremendously I’m a 5’0 21 yr old woman if I can move it and put it together anyone can
This was my second zen purchase. They are easy to assemble, light weight, and most importantly have two very happy BD living in them. Arrived quickly and in good condition.
This cage is exactly what I was looking for, for my guy. He needed an upgrade and this was perfect. Very easy assembly.
Brought two of them and the girls love them
Easy to piece together and works well, mat is also easy to clean!
My little boy loves this enclosure! It’s so nice and sturdy and was a breeze to put together.
Beautiful terrarium, we are very happy with it.
I got this enclosure for my corn snake, Atlas, and we both absolutely love it! It looks so nice and holds up well:) very easy to assemble too. I’m gonna be ordering more for my ball python and hognose.
We received our Zen Habitats’s 4x2x2 Wood Panel recently and our Bearded Dragon LOVES it. It retains heat incredibly well and is easy to assemble and clean. The acrylic doors are just heavy enough to guarantee your medium sized lizards will not escape.
One thing...a rubber mallet is a MUST as it took A LOT of hard hits to get the top frame installed properly. Other than that. Five stars!
Our Venus loves it! She has so much room to get around now. And we have ordered her some cool new decorations because she has the space to put it in. The front opening doors are the best. Although they get scratches on them from rubbing together. That was an easy fix though because I just put a felt dot in between them.
Great quality enclosure that was easy to assemble. Absolutely love it!
Super easy to put together! Finley felt right at home! Probably going bioactive next and love that you have the basin to be able to do that in the future as well as being able to expand the zen as well! Also the Zen mat fits perfectly and is super easy to clean!
This is our fourth ZenHabitat. I can not say enough good things about the product or the customer service. I absolutely recommend!
Houdini was in a 40 gallon tank before this so he loves it! I have had it for a little over a year and it’s still good as new. He is a lot less stressed now that he only has one exposed side. I would recommend this enclosure to any one and everyone I could! Being only 5’3 it’s nice to have it be pretty light for easy moving!
It was so easy my 13 year old assembled it by Himself!
We actually love it but need a solution to the gap created between the sliding doors. This gap is large enough for those invasive (and poisonous to dragons) ladybugs to sneak into the enclosure.
We love the 4x2x2 that we purchased!! We also purchased the stand and mat and we love them!!
I love how big this enclosure is for the price! It was also very easy to put together with the help of the instructional video and a rubber mallet. My little lizard loves his home!
The reptile enclosure and base are great. Easy to put together. Made very solid and sturdy with beautiful materials. Nick the bearded dragon loves his home and all the space he has. The price is so reasonable for such a large high quality enclosure.
Thank you for such wonderful products!
Easy build. Huge cage.
Great product. Beardie loves the room to run and jump around. I would take into consideration bulb wattage as there is 2ft of height. Also use the substrate shield no matter what loose substrate it is. It will get in the tracks. Other than that everything is perfect!
We are first time reptile pet owners.
The enclosure is very well-manufactured and easy to put together. It seems very durable as well. Just one small piece of advice: Put it up on whatever stand it is going to be on BEFORE you fill it with substrate, because the bottom seems like it could potentially pop out if it bowed too much in the middle. Once put together and in place though, it is VERY sturdy.
The bamboo sides are a beautiful backdrop to whatever interior features you add, and they help reptiles not be agitated by glass reflections.
Our enclosure turned out beautiful, and our little beardie seems to LOVE it. Maintenance is SUPER easy because we went ahead and bought the bio-active setup for it, with living plants. Beardie is healthy, happy, and growing like a weed!
A fabulous bonus feature to this entire setup is that having a living terrarium brightens up the entire room.
We would highly recommend this product for anyone needing an enclosure. It is well worth the money spent.
Easy to put together and looks very nice!
easy to set up and to clean up!
I got two of these for my two dragons and I absolutely love them! I also got the spacer to stack them and the mats to go in the bottoms. These are so lightweight and easy to put together. The only thing I wish that would get changed is how easy they are for the corners to come loose other than that these are amazing enclosures for my dragons! Thank you zen habitats I will be making another purchase in the near future for my 3rd dragon!

I love this habitat it is lightweight and easy to assemble
My girl is much happier in this bigger home. The 4x2x2 is perfect for her to move around more. It was easy to put together and is light enough that I can have it on a folding table.
I had heard about this enclosure many times and so many people recommended it. I had looked for awhile for a new enclosure for my beardie and with the price and reviews on this one i decided to try it out, and let me tell you i am not disappointed! I ordered this on one day and it literally came the very next day, i was so shocked at how fast the shipping was! Literally wasn’t even a full 24hrs till i received it! On top of the incredibly fast shipping, it was also very easy to assemble and considering the size of it, it’s very light weight. Pictures don’t do this enclosure justice, the thing is huge! My beardie LOVES it, which makes this momma very happy. I highly recommend this ZenHabitats enclosure, i am glad i purchased it (:
We have a baby bearded dragon and he literally uses the entire enclosure! It was super easy to setup, it maintains the heat really well and there's plenty of room to create 2 different kinds of habitats for o
Great quality, great customer service, happy dragon.
Love the sturdiness and look of the enclosure and it was pretty easy to assemble. But best of all, Sifa likes it.
I highly recommend Zen Habitat! The tank and stand are beautiful. Very fast delivery and everything was packaged very well.
Great product! Easy to assemble.
Very happy with purchase, delivery and product setup. Would highly recommend this to any reptile owner!
I absolutely love the reptile enclosure from zen habitats. I feel that this is a much healthier having a larger area where a captive animal can move about. I’m very happy with my purchase. While I appreciated the paper saving choice to have assembly directions only available online, I think a choice of whether or not to include paper would be a nice option.
I love how spacious this enclosure is and how clean/ simple it looks! However, I did expect it to be sturdier. All and all I am happy with my purchase. Their customer service was also very quick to help me when a few of my pieces weren't cut correctly. Would definitely recommend.
Easy set up, nice price, great product. Would recommend to any keeper/pet owner. The only improvement I would ask for is a single support bar running perpendicular in the center to the 3 support bars on the screen. It would give more light mounting options.
love it so much room getting another one here shortly
