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.
Lightweight – Only 48 lbs. fully assembled.
Easy to assemble – A rubber mallet sometimes helps.
Many other lizards, snakes and tortoises that thrive in lower humidity environments (such as a hognose snake, king snake, uromastyx, and more).
Great alternative for the following size aquariums/terrariums: 33 gallon, 37 gallon, 38 gallon, 40 gallon, 45 gallon, 50 gallon, 55 gallon, 65 gallon, 75 gallon, 90 gallon, 120 gallon
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.

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
This cage was a Christmas present for our daughter who has a Uromastx named Prince. We have had him a couple months and see that he needed a bigger set up. Unfortunately, since he has been placed in his new home, he hasn’t eaten or left his hide. It’s been 10 days. He seems to really not like his new home. We were very excited to give him this HUGE cage so I hope he comes around soon. Will update this review if he comes around.
Loving this terrarium for our bearded dragon, Georgia! It was fun to put together, with my 11 year old son, it's roomy and the mat is ideal, so glad we purchased that as well! Our doors, like so many others are all scratched up despite the felt pads we put on, that's disappointing but we still love the set up.
It’s a beautiful enclosure but not incredibly sturdy. The top right lifts off super easy. When we picked it up to set it on it’s table the whole right side came apart :(
Otherwise it’s great and I love it... just can’t plan to ever move it
Easy to put together and our beardie loves it!
This enclosure is hands down the best one in the market. It’s light weight for the size of it, easy to assemble and our beardy Ozzy loves it! The price tag may be on the expensive side but it is well worth the price for a home your pet will love!
We love this enclosure! Added a nice background and built a matching cave. I think it's beardie approved!
We did add a top above the screen to keep temperature higher in cage.
Well constructed, with solid materials, and simple assembly. I like the wood panels for heat retention and the whole thing has put an end to glass surfing. The parts were packaged very well and it arrived unscathed, despite manhandling by our delivery people.
Levi loves his new home! Beautiful setup and super easy to build
Easy to set up and worth the price.
Very cheaply made for the price, every time I close the left side door the bars start to come out a bit each time, very frustrating haven't even had it a month yet. The door knobs they sent with it are also too big for the doors so I can't even use those which is just awesome. I don't recommend buying one.
Couldnt be happier with our selection. Very helpful team, easy setup, looks amazing, and best of all our new beardie loves it!!!!
The habitat was a gift for my granddaughter and she was very happy with it and her dragon loves all the extra space. The only complaint is that there’s no written directions....this makes assembling harder because you need your computer etc with you while working on the habitat.
This is a fantastic product from a fantastic company! We bought it for my daughter’s bearded dragon for Christmas. It shipped immediately and was delivered faster than some pizzas I’ve ordered! Very high quality and easy to assemble. We are very satisfied and highly recommend this product.
It’s the neatest home—- Falkor loves the slick floor. The clear view we have now to watch him is awesome.
Great cage, my Beardie loves it. High quality, decent price, easy to put together.
Very well made and easy to assemble! Thanks guys!
The enclosure itself is great and my lizard has so much room to run around and do lizard things, the only thing I dislike about this enclosure is the packaging could be better to protect the bamboo panels which were chipped when I received it, and it also seems that the parts don’t quite fit perfectly there are gaps in the corners. For $330 the packaging and bamboo panels SHOULD BE in perfect condition.
Im a single woman and I had it put together in 15 minutes, I love it, but even more important my bearded dragon loves it!!! Thanks Zen habitat
We purchased this tank as an alternative to upsizing a traditional glass tank for our 8 month dragon. We purchased the base as well and love all the storage that provides, the sliding doors are great for ease of access and cleaning. He has so much room and will never outgrow it. This tank is huge so check out the measurements compared to the space you have available. Very modern look, would love to see it with a darker "wood" color instead of the light bamboo but that's just aesthetics and we are very happy with our purchase. Well, worth the price for the size alone.
We are very happy with our new cage for Spiker. He has lots of room to move and explore. The logs are from my dad's farm that we cut from the woods. He stays on them all day. The best part is the black mat that makes cleaning up messes so much easier. We had to add a lot of thermal lighting to keep his cage in the correct temperature range. I love the two front sliding doors. It makes feeding an access simpler.
Got it in 2 days very easy to put together holds heat great for my uromastyx
Love the habitat that I bought for my daughters bearded dragon!!! Lots of room for her to roam around and easy to get in and out
I absolutely LOVE this set up and so does Mochi. Only downside is the doors scratching against each other. Otherwise and wonderful product well worth the money.
I really love the look of this habitat, and it's definitely sturdy. I wish that the liner came with the enclosure since I think most people would prefer it... Or perhaps a rectangular basin that comes assembled, since the liner wasn't my favorite material looks-wise. In addition to the liner I also siliconed the bottom and top the sides to prevent leakage.
All in all it really is a lovely enclosure and I'm very happy to have it.
We ordered a Zen for our bearded dragon and it was the perfect upgrade from a glass enclosure. The wood and plexiglass holds heat so much better than glass. It shipped out very quickly and was easy to assemble. We created our own background and climbing structures, which are easily removed through he sliding doors or top screen.
We would recommend Zen Habitat to anyone looking for an awesome enclosure.
Love the habitat, my beardie has lots of space and it looks great. It was easy to assemble but definitely needed a rubber mallet.
We just recently bought our third habitat for our bearded dragon that we rescued. We are very satisfied and will continue to purchase from Zen Habitats. We have two ball pythons that will be getting new enclosures from Zen Habitats soon.
Could not be more please! This is a GREAT space for a full grown beardie. My big buddy looks teeny in the cage, ha! There’s so much room for your creative juices to work with to provide fantastic enrichment for your beardies! Solid price without being too cumbersome or heavy. I can’t say enough positive things. Get one!
Love this new habitat for my lizard.
Perfect home for our bearded dragon. Nice and big and reasonably priced!
Shipping was fast and the product was packaged well. Nothing broken or damaged.
Assembly was easy enough, all parts were present.
I love it! Gucci loves it!
Read the instructions when assembling. Parts are labeled for a reason. Bless my other half who had to reassemble because he didn't listen the first time.
Top Notch! Loved it!! Beautifully made, video to help put together was well done and easy to assemble
It's true to size. It took me about an hour to put the 4x2x2 and stand together. The instructions were easy to follow and my dragon absolutely loves it!! It was a perfect fit. It did take her a couple days to adjust to her new enclosure, but it was worth it. I will be buying again in the future.
Love the look and stability of the enclosure. Putting it together though was a hassle some parts did not want to fit without a lot of force. I’ve had it for about a year now and it’s held up really well for my Ball Python. Definitely considering ordering another for a Sunbeam.
Ball python enclosure. This is a major upgrade from the smaller enclosure the snake was in. Easy setup as well.
I purchased the 4x2x2 Zen Habitat with wood panels. Overall I like the enclosure, It was simple to assemble and the aluminum frame is nice and sturdy. I do wish the wood panels were a little tighter fit because there is play and they do bend a little. However the enclosure is great for my bearded dragon and I am happy with my purchase. I also ordered the Zen mat for the enclosure which is nice but doesn't quite fit if you have the loose substrate shield installed. So I may be removing the substrate shield to get the mat down all the way and then put it back so it sits on top if the mat. Great product, would recommend to any reptile pet owner.
Great tank at a great price. It has plenty of room for my bearded dragon to stretch his legs. The tank was easy to set up and fun to decorate. It was packaged well and arrived in great shape. The panels for the door can scratch easily, so be careful when putting those in. We scuffed ours a bit, but it is on the bottom and was 100% our fault for not being extra careful!
Very good structure. All metal frame to my surprise. The bamboo panels are also good. Only wish the bottom panel is little thicker. Otherwise heavy stuff will push panel down a little bit. Overall very sturdy enclosure.
Perhaps a door lock mechanism for child proof ??
Perfect for out beardies permanent closure! She loves it!
Easy to assemble, looks awesome
Easy to assemble, easy to use and beautiful! I feel like it’s a piece of furniture rather than a clunky habitat.
My beardie loves her new 5 star accommodations! Such a huge upgrade from the 10 gal starter tank. The enclosure was really easy to assemble, but I highly recommend getting a rubber mallet. Customer service is top notch. The CEO personally emailed me to let me know the shipping was held up at customs. I also had a question late one night about the specs and I had a live chat with a real person who was able to answer my question. I highly recommend Zen Habitats!
Pancake the Lizard King loves his upgrade from a 36”x18”x18” enclosure to the 4”x2”x2” Zen Habitats enclosure. With all the extra space to run and climb he is more active and vibrant than ever, and no longer glass surfs. The habitat was lightweight and easy to assemble. Zen Habitats was responsive to questions and the enclosure arrived in a timely manner
