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.
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.
Arrived very quickly. Pretty easy to assemble after watching the YouTube video from Zen Habitats. Would recommend.
I bought two. A good enclosure for a great price.
I love the Zen Habitat for my bearded dragon. She seems to love it as well. I found the assembly easy but definitely needed a rubber mallet. The YouTube video was very helpful. All in all it was a very positive experience.
Perfect enclosure for my adult Mexican Black Kingsnake!
Z is the happiest girl! she loves her new tank and i honestly love it just as much, if not more! the design is beautiful and it’s very sturdy, relatively easy to put together (with instructions on the website, i didn’t find them until it was 70% put together), the wooden floor to it feels very slippery but she gets around pretty easily, would be better to put some kind of substrate or something with a non slip surface, humidity does get kinda high at night but my room is pretty humid, during the day it stays below 40. well ventilated and the wire top is surprisingly strong. i also like that you can hang maybe your uvb light from the inside instead of putting it on top. overall, i would 10000% recommend you buy this!
I love my zen habitat. It is so spacious for my beardie. I love that its taller than most options, my Albus loves to climb
Overall I am happy with the enclosure, I would warn to say the instructional video you have to chase down isn't super in depth and I put things in backwards and had to take the enclosure apart a couple of times which was annoying. Also the material isn't what I was hoping it would be and I'm skeptical the boards will rot with humidity but we will see. I've had it for about a month now and all is good so far.
Absolutely cheaply made and “overpriced” is an understatement. This is legit robbery. Not only did they forget to add essential parts, meaning I had to wait extra to receive them, but when they did come, they were BENT and unusable. When I was finally able to complete the enclosure, it felt like it could fall apart if the wind was too strong.
Great habitat. Easy assembly
Not easy for a single 54 yo woman to put together but I figured it out after hours Of determination. I think Rex approves!
She loves her new home! So much more room to run around in!
We like our Zen Habitat. We are happy we found this size enclosure. We had been looking for at least 75 gallon enclosure tank, but we weren't finding just what we wanted. Until we found Zen Habitat. We were excited that the enclosure was bigger and at a price we were willing to pay for such space.
Hagrid, our daughter's beardie, is very happy in his new home. He has lots of space to move and things to bask and climb on that fit perfect in it.
We did notice with the lower front panel behind the doors that he would look at it, as if he was seeing another beardie and start to pose. We taped newspaper over the panel, and he is no longer looking at it.
We are so happy to have a beardie that has his own comfort space. He's such a cool pet.
I purchased the 4'x2'x2' Wood Panel Habitat and the corresponding stand and mat in addition to it. My boy absolutely loves the extra room, and it provides plenty of space for him to move around and climb. Also, as promised, the wood paneling keeps the inside at low humidity levels which is fantastic. :)
However, there are some small things that bumped this down to a four star rather than a five star. The primary downfall was the condition of some of the metal bars and the acrylic doors. Unfortunately, despite being very careful when assembling the habitat, I noticed some scratch marks and discoloration on the metal frame despite the protective film put on each bar. I also notice the same issue with the acrylic doors, some scratches being already present despite the film and careful handling. Luckily, these aren't too noticeable unless you look closely, but it still affects my overall rating.
Great product. my only issue was in shipping. I ordered 2, and one must have got bent in shipping even though the box was fine. so now my acrylic doors rub on each other causing them to be scratch really bad. I'm wanting to get the glass doors in hopes they won't scratch. I believe this is shipping damage, so not Zen's fault. I highly recommend these enclosures, and plan on ordering 3 more in the near future.
Easy to set-up, looks great, and our beardie loves his ne Zen Home.
Had the best costumer service I’ve ever had from a company! Easy to put together and great people to work with!
Love this enclosure. Was super easy to set up.
Both Dragons like it. So much room do decorate however you want . Plenty of room to walk and climb around.
While delivery was delayed, we received very good customer service and were very happy when it arrived. It was easy to assemble but would highly recommend watching the short video Zen has on their website. Thanks Zen for a quality habitat!
For $350 you should include instructions and extra corner pieces.
Luna Lives her new massive enclosure!!
My beardie loves his new home! I love how big and open this tank is, and it’s nice that it’s pretty light and easy to move around. It was a little difficult to put together because the tracks needed a lot of force to go into the corner pieces. Luckily I had my strong dad to help me bang them into place. Hopefully it lasts the test of time!
I love the new 4x2x2 Zen Habitat. The wood sides help maintain the perfect temps and humidity. My dragon loves the space! The only possible thing that could be improved is how easily he has scratched the doors (he glass surfs when he wants out!)
We absolute LOVE this habitat. It’s still a work in progress for our sweet Hope. She has a lot more growing to do and when she wants to roam she has a lot of room.
Very well made and easy to put together. The bamboo sides are fantastic for her and the cage looks so nice in our home. Easy to clean.
Such an awesome price foe the perfect home for our sweet beardie! Thank you Zen!!!
He and I are enjoying it (and the gracious free replacement part)
It was delivered quicker than expected. Came exactly as described. Was able to assemble it with the help of both written instructions and video.
It was so easy to set up. My 13 yr old son did most of it. And our dragon is enjoying all the new space he has to roam.
Very nice setup! Watch video before and while putting together as it’s easy to mess up. Piece broke while putting together so be very careful. Will definitely need a mallet
Cons: 2 plastic corner pieces broke during assembly. One bc it was inserted wrong and it snapped when trying to take it apart. The other broke when trying to insert it the correct way but the metal it was going into was slightly bent and it wouldn’t fit.
Yes, I watched the video multiple times and was meticulous in putting it together. Directions were unclear at times and the metal sides the plastic corners slide into were so tight that it was nearly impossible to insert them, even with a rubber mallet as directed by the instructions.
I don’t believe the price and time it took to get the enclosure is justified by the difficulty it took to put it together. We ended up having to improvise to built it as we had two broken corner pieces. I would not recommend buying this product. Or, at the very least, the enclosure should come with extra plastic corner pieces.
Nice looking enclosure but it took a long time to arrive and I have been waiting 6 weeks for the base and it still has not shipped
Product arrived on time; installation was tricky but the seller was very helpful and provided a replacement part without delay. Our dragon loves his new home!
If you don’t rush through putting it together, this only takes about 30 minutes. If you do rush, you’ll probably end up having to take it apart like I did.
Very nice quality and the video instructions are perfect. You’ll need to watch a separate video to see how the lock and seals for the doors work.
I broke one of the pieces when putting it together and customer service was fast and friendly in sending the parts I needed.
Now, I just feel guilty only having one of my bearded dragons in this. Will come back when I can upgrade the others.
The cage went together easy enough although it took a LOT of force with a mallet and time. The only issue now is when I walk around the house, the gradual shaking has the cage coming apart in various places. So I have to tap it back into place about once a week. I tried using super glue but it didn't hold.
Also the wood panels I was hoping would be actually wood and not MDF or particle board. So if this get wet for some reason, I do not have high hopes it will hold up. So I purchased the plastic liner to help guard the floor from any moisture damage.
It looks wonderful though.
