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.
I am new to this and this is my first bearded dragon so I was just wondering if someone could let me know if it is ok to get a 26 watt light bulb.
when the enclosure finally shipped it only took three days to get here and this was very very easy to build. the instructional video is very straight forward even for people who aren’t used to building (like myself). my bearded dragon, lafayette, is already getting used to his enclosure and is loving the extra space and is currently exploring his new enclosure. normally i dont do reviews but i just HAD to. /definitely/ worth the buy.
Not a quality enclosure to be honest. Could be better quality for the price you pay. Also good luck receiving the product timely. You'll be quoted a month or two out and receive it likely within 4 months!
I first off I want to say that I absolutely love my Zen tank. My Dragon is a happy boy. The only down side was how long it took to get to me. But is was worth the wait. Thank you so much. Diana M.
Was easy to put together except for the grey connector pieces..more than a dozen whacks with the mallet on a few pieces other than that it was easy & Calvin loves all the room he has now!
Shipping time took a bit longer then expected but it was well worth the wait! It was very quick and easy to put together and the fit and finish was perfect! My beardie Luna seems to love the new bio active set up, she’s more active moving all around exploring her new surroundings. Huge upgrade from her basic 40 gallon. Overall very satisfied with the product and service!
This has been a great change for us! It was easy to put together and the front opening allows for more stress free interactions with our beardie. Our son can now get her and is more involved in her care.
Disappointed. Corner piece broke right away when I was first assembling it. Then the piece Zen Habitats sent to me was cracked. Surprisingly it did not break. I just feel after spending all this money on this enclosure that it was not worth it. The corner pieces are weak, and the boards bend easily. Will not purchase again.
This cage is easy to put together and lighter than my old glass cage that is a good bit smaller than this one and my bearded dragon loves it.
Wonderful amount of space for my beardie! Did require some manhandling to put together and instructions did not include the two metal braces for what I believe were for the sliding doors, but the end result is very sturdy and fashionable.
Athena loves her very home.
We bought our 1st Beardie Lizzie’s tank from Zen habitat after she began to glass surf her 40 gallon tank at 6 months old, shortly after we got our 2nd beardie Dizzie, who was a tiny guy, who quickly caught up with her size. We couldn’t wait to get him, his own upgrade & the cabinets to match. We were gonna go with the full size cabinet for the bottom, but desired that would put the top tank way too close to the ceiling. We couldn’t be happier with our new set up, even if we had a bit of a wait on the last tank. Our beardies are so happy & healthy now & they love their homes so much, that after getting out for a bit they are practically jumping back into their own habitats. I love how much space they save and got rid off so much unnecessary clutter & ugly tanks that they were not happy in.
My bearded dragon loves his new forever home. Had a small issue when putting it together but the company made it right the same day. Awesome experience with customer service. Shipping could of been better as there was slight damage to the wood panels but nothing that's noticeable to others but that's on FedEx.
Great terrarium, especially considering how expensive most options are at this size. This was a fantastic build at a competitive price. Very easy to assemble. Make sure you use a rubber mallet or else you’ll hurt your ears (and possibly your beardie’s if they’re nearby) by using a regular hammer when assembling. Very loud clangs. All in all super happy with this purchase!
you should pack extra connection t-joints.. 1 of mine broke in the building process.. had to glue it and make it work.. quite upsetting.. my lizard seems to like it though.. he has plenty of room now. Took forever to get it shipped. freaking almost 3 months to get here.. very disappointed with the shipping policy. Thought these habitats were American made. I'm afraid not. The price for this habitat is too much. If you can build(I can't)you may want to consider building your own.
The wait was worth it. ‘Dude Guy’ loves it! So much room for activities!!
Overall it's great! It wasn't at all hard to put together and I surprisingly light weight. The corners seem a bit loose, but it holds together very well. It's very sturdy. The only problem I had was the substrate shield. It was very hard to get in without it sticking to the walls. My idea for when your building your tank is to leave the last side of the bottom frame loose. Don't put it all the way in until after you've put in the substrate shield. That way you have some space to get it to the bottom without touching the walls. Once you have it stuck to the bottom and none loose side, push or hammer the other side fully in. Since we didn't do this, we were unable to get it all the way down to the bottom. Happily, we aren't using loose substrate. It's more so a wall that prevents our lizard from running out when we open the door. Anyway, we also had a problem with the glue. The bottle kind of exploded and we had to use cotton swabs to put glue on. Both things we had trouble with were optional parts of the tank. Other than that, it's great! Hold in heat well, is good sized, has nice front sliding doors (which was the most exciting part), and most importantly, it was cheap for a tank this big. I especially appreciate the free shipping. Thank you for making tanks that are cheaper and better for our pets than any tanks we find at stores.
At first putting it together was rather confusing according to the video, really wish their was a paper manual. So unfortunately part got broken. However Customer Service was incredibly kind and helpful and were able to replace the parts I needed. Now that it’s set up, it’s both sturdy and beautiful.
I love it, unfortunately it is a little bit of a wait to get it but so worth it. Couldn’t be happier, I did order the stand after I got it I. because due to the size I couldn’t put it anywhere but on the floor. I also ordered the mat that goes on the floor and it is super easy to clean and absolutely worth it.
Very well made my dragon loves his new habitat
We had to wait longer then expected due to back orders but it was very much worth the wait. Very easy to assemble and my son had a blast decorating the walls and doing the set up. We love it and so does our beardie!!!!
Love the tank, terrible to build. The Pieces were so hard to hammer in with my mallet that it broke. Almost everyone of my sides of my tank arent flush because they would not budge.
My dragon loves it! Keeps temps good, lots of space.
So easy to put together and we had a blast making it perfect for our Beardie, Emerald. Worth the wait!! Thank you!
Shipping took a lot longer then I expected. Apparently there was some delay from overseas. The pounding with the mallet was extreme compared to what I seen in the Youtube assembly video. I had to pound one so hard the plastic corner piece broke. They sent replacements. Ended up just epoxying it because i had been waiting almost 2 weeks longer then original timeframe. Overall works fine for the cost but if could do over would spend a bit more and go with a different option.
Bearded dragon seems to love it. Putting together was a little tougher than the video made it seem. None of the pieces pushed together. Definitely needed a rubber mallet. Other than that everything was awesome.
Easy to put together and very nice. I love it.
I just upgraded from a 40 gallon and wow what a size difference this 4x2x2 is! So much more room! My dragon and I love it!! It was super easy to put together by following along the step by step video instructions! The video is a must when putting it together, you can pause it or rewind it if needed, everything went together so easy, only needed to use the rubber mallot once or twice to help get some pieces together! Make sure you notice the plexiglass glass pieces are in a brown paper, you have to peel the paper off of them, dont throw them away! These pieces should be marked on the paper that says "PLEXI GLASS DOORS" so people can see them better!
Changed my bearded dragons life! He is more active and happy since upgrading his enclosure. Paired with a 160 Watt light/heat bulb, it creates optimal conditions. Enclosure was easy to set up and light for when I have to move it. Highly recommend!
It was easy to build with the help of the video! First time building a cage and I did it all by my self! No tools needed! (Btw I am a very small 22 year old girl)
Best decision for a bearded dragon enclosure. Love the big opening in the front! My dragon loves her large home and uses the whole area, I believe the larger size is great for exercise and enrichment.
Our Dragon Baby loves her new home! We haven't decided on exactly which way were going to go as far as substrates but so far the introduction into her new space has been so much easier than expected.
Put it together myself in less then 30 minutes, definitely not as heavy as a 40 gallon tank and he seems to like it, for us the only downside is how the doors scraped and scratch, over all I’m happy we purchased it
When we opened everything, the flooring was chipped. We have the same issue with the tank as we do with the stand, the corners come out. We put sand in there and the one back corner had came apart so the sand just fell out. The screen is too thick on top so now we have to figure out a way to have all the lights mounted inside the tank. The only thing I like is the size. We were pretty disappointed with all of it
Pretty easy to put together. Dragon seems to like it. My only really real complaint is the singular hole in the middle for cords. I would suggest an option that has one on each side for ease of use, but other than that it is a good tank. We also drilled small holes on the side for my in tank thermometer wires. Oh, and getting the substrate guard in is an absolute pain. I highly recommend using 3M double sided tape instead of the tape they provide (it stretches). Other than getting the substrate guard in, putting the whole thing together was pretty easy and the whole tank is so light. The mesh on the top doesn't get hot, even with a CHE running 24/7. I also highly recommend getting the mat they sell. It has been amazing.

Big Boy LOVES his new digs. Easy for me to get into to clean (i prefer the sliding doors as opposed to the ones that swing open.....i've caught my head/shoulders on one of them and it smarts).
Easy to put together. Nice and spacey. My dragon loves it
Perfect my little beardie!! Tater loves his new home!
The habitat is beautiful and gives our baby all she needs to run around. Easy to put together even without instructions. We will be building a proper door system to store all of her necessities soon.
Absolutely love the Zen Habitat! It looks so elegant and beautiful to look at. But most importantly, my little girl loves it the most! She's the queen of her Jurassic Park themed Zen. Lol. She's a Clever Girl.. xD Thank you Zen Habitats for creating an easy to put together, beautiful enclosure!
We really like the new enclosure. It gave our bearded dragon a lot more space. It was really easy to build too. My 5 year old built most of it with supervision!
The only issue with my Zen Habitat is that I didn't find it sooner!
Easy to setup/configure, shipping and delivery was FAST, video tutorials were helpful in preparing me for what I needed to know for setup.
Overall, my experience with Zen Habitats and each product I've purchased is a solid 11/10.
Great cage however the plexiglass scratches pretty easily
It’s amazing! I’ve been wanting one for a long time and it’s worth every penny. My bearded dragon is so much happier.
Our bearded dragon struggled in other and enclosures and we are so thankful that she now loves her Zen Habitat. She is much calmer and is eating well. Fairly easy to assemble and shipped quickly.
Definitely worth the price easy to put together and extremely spacious.
It’s exactly as pictured, very easy to put together and they are helpful
It wasn't as easy as I thought it would be to put together so you really have to take you time and make sure your grabbing the correct part but other than that it's a really nice habitat and so worth the money.
We are so happy with our purchase... From the moment we got on the website and got all our questions answered in the chat box, to the time it was delivered, to the easy step by step installation video, to seeing our Chummy so happy in his new home. I can't think of a single negative thing to say about our experience!! So glad that the video explained that the doors were not missing and that we just needed to peal off the protective layer covering them because at first glance we thought they were indeed missing. Nope! Everything was there and went together perfectly :)
My big boy is loving his new home! He has been in a 40 gal fish tank!
Spot loves her new Zen habitat! We had a 40 gallon before and the Zen gives her so much more room to roam, she loves the doors for ease of exit (yes she uses the sisal bridge to come and go when we let her out to explore but most of all it is so easy to maintain the temps of the habitat once you figure out exactly the right size basking bulb and che that work for your house temps. We love it!
This zen habitat terrarium was super easy to put together and is large enough for my beardie to run around and climb on stuff. He seems to love it. I would recommend this product to anyone, however, I wish it hadn't cost so much. But the company has to make money, so I get it. In all, totally satisfied with my purchase!
Lots more room for him to explore but description said non reflective doors but he can still see his reflection. He will walk up and down and try to find other lizard.
Overall I'm very happy with the product! I love that it is lightweight, strong screen with areas to hang lighting on and love the mat as well. My only concern would be how fast the front of the doors scratched up. I have only had it for 2 weeks and it is pretty bad already.
My BD was previously in a 4ftx18inx18in glass enclosure. It was great but she's extremely active and definitely needed more space. After hearing about Zen Habitats from countless other BD owners on several different groups and forums, I decided on this one and I'm so glad I did. I received my enclosure 2 days after ordering and immediately got to putting it together. My boyfriend helped me with assembly, and we went along with the instructional video. It took us about 30mins to set it up. While assembling, it seems like it might be flimsy. But once you get it all put together, it's actually nice and sturdy. I'm in love with the wood-grain look on the panels... I just think it looks so elevated compared to Cookie's previous glass tank that had a desert-photo background taped up around the outside of the tank. The aluminum pieces that makeup the front of the frame were each labeled, which made it easy to discern which pieces belonged where. Once I had it setup and was ready to clean it before moving Cookie's accessories in, I realized I wasn't sure if the panels would be able to withstand a direct misting of the chlorhexidine solution I use to clean. I emailed customer service at 11pm on a Friday to ask this question, and impressively received a reply within 4 minutes (btw, the answer is yes, it's fine to mist them directly with cleaning solution as long as it doesn't run down and pool in the channels). My only complaints so far are that while I appreciated the stickers labelling the aluminum pieces, they left behind an adhesive film when I peeled them off. I think a little dab of goo-gone will remove that, though. Also, peeling the brown sticky liner off the acrylic panels was difficult. That was actually probably the most annoying part of assembling the tank. However, I understand that the protection is necessary to prevent the acrylic from scratching. Both of these complaints are very minor issues for me, and would NOT prevent me from purchasing again in the future if need be. I'm extremely happy with my purchase, and I know Cookie will love her new home!
We love the cage, the size is wonderful. It was easy to put together. Olia our bearded dragon adapted very well to her surroundings. Thank you!
Not done decorating. So much to put in there. Lots of room. Hard decisions, where to put it all. Kobe is used to me moving things around so he's ok with change. He can make bigger messes now. Shedding, so he's not enjoying anything right now.
great product, fast shipping, great customer service. our little friend loves his new digs!!!
The tank is a great size, easy to put together, easy to clean, easy to keep warm and looks beautiful. It is also lighter, more energy efficient and cheaper than a same size glass tank. Shipping took a while but it was worth the wait. Baby beardie felt comfortable in it right away. Highly recommend.
Honestly love the enclosure. Fantastic design and quality of the material. Excellent customer service. Make y'all a deal if you give me a few sheckles off the price of the 4'x2' cabinet stand, I'll send ya multiple photos back!
My granddaughter has a bearded dragon named Gizzy. He was in a 50 gallon aquarium and as he was growing it was getting harder to take him out the top So she asked for a new enclosure for Christmas. I looked at lots of them and the Zen Habitat looked well-built and had really good reviews. It worked out perfect. Gizzy loves it and it's very easy for my granddaughter to get Gizzy out the front doors and it's big enough for him as he continues to grow. It's built well and worth the money so I highly recommend it for anybody who needs a good enclosure.
This is the best habitat. It was easy to put together and the videos were helpful. Thank you!!
Love this., it waa perfect upgrade for this guy for xmas. PLEASE make expansion kits!! I would love to make him a mansion❤❤
So much more room for Satan to move around.
Glad we got it.
Iggy loves her new habitat and all the room.
I love this product overall, but it can be hard to move it without the connectors starting to slip out and disconnect.
I like having all this room
Easy to assemble but you do definitely need a rubber mallet lol. My bearded dragon loves it and it’s easy to heat. The glass is not super reflective so that’s a big plus. It is a bit bulky but it’s definitely worth it. I got the cabinet for underneath the enclosure and it’s roomy and great for storage.
This habitat is amazing! It looks great in our living room and our dragon has so much space and is happy! Thanks ZenHabitats!
Luna says this so the best enclosure money can buy. It holds heat well, is safe, and large enough for me to thrive. It is also very “zen” and a nice aesthetic to my daughters room!
4'x2'x2' Wood Panel Bearded Dragon Enclosure ordered Monday arrived Saturday. Easy to put together and a really good looking enclosure.
I just ordered the tank last month. Just received it and already liking how spacious it is for my beardie! She is already adjusted to her new habitat which is good. I will recommend the product to anybody if they are looking for any tanks!
We love our zen habitat. My family says our Beardie lives in a pent house of enclosures. It was fairly easy to put together and set up. Only complaint would be how long it took to get it. But otherwise very happy with our purchase.
This habitat was a fantastic purchase. It was easy to put together, it looks great, and most importantly, my bearded dragon's stress level is way down now that he's not in an all-glass vivarium. He was having daily battles with his reflection and now, he's able to just roam around and enjoy his (much larger) home. I bought the stand as well but I rather wish I had bought the cabinet - I regret not having the storage space. Instead I found a small dresser thing to go underneath, but I bet the cabinet would still look nicer. Lesson learned! The communication with the Zen Habitats team was great as well. I would recommend these products to anybody in the market for a really nice habitat for their pet!
I bought this because of the rave reviews and price. You cannot beat this habitat! It was fairly easy to put together and works PERFECTLY for Rango (our beardie). This will likely be his "forever" home. Great job on this product!
Roxy loves her new digs.
Very easy to assemble! Love it.
SO WORTH IT! Don't think twice if you want an awesome home for your reptile! I am so glad I found these enclosures! Its big, Its airy and my Bearded Dragon, Taco is having a great time living life!
I was worried that his magnetic ledges would not work in this enclosure but to my excitement the magnets hold so well though the sides of the enclosure! So happy with this purchase! Easy to set up and maintain! I purchased some ceramic tile "planks" and Taco has a great floor to shuffle his little feet on. This enclosure is so easy to maintain and clean. Could not be happier!
My son and I are very pleased with the Zen Habitat vivarium. It was pretty simple and quick to put together - your assembly video was very helpful. We love the metal rods across the top screen for hanging the lighting and heating fixtures. Love the attention to detail. Beautiful and functional. And our beardie really loves his new home.
Love the tank and so does my beardie. Definitely recommend the use of a rubber mallet for assembly, but it was easy to put together and really lightweight. Especially during this season, I recommend not hesitating to order as there are possible shipping delays of 4-8 weeks :) but worth the wait!
Nice enclosure, took about an hour to assemble. My beardie took almost two weeks to get comfortable in his new home. The only issue I have with this is that the sliding doors on the plexiglass scratched due to the edges not being finished smoothly. You can see what I'm talking about if you zoom in on the middle section of the doors.
My bearded dragon absolutely loves his new set up, and it was relatively easy to put together, I would definitely buy from them again. ❤️
Just wanted to say how much I love the 4x2x2 enclosure that I purchased from Zen Habitats. It is the best enclosure on the market with the best price!!! The enclosure was simple to assemble and all the parts are high quality. My beardie Dexter is so much happier in it. He just loves having all the extra room to roam. Also, the customer service with Zen Habitats is A++++++. I would definitely recommend buying your reptile enclosure from Zen Habitats!!!
Super easy to assemble. My dragon loves his new enclosure!
She loves her new home
It was worth the two month wait! This is a gorgeous enclosure. Simple to set up and has plenty of room for a full grown bearded dragon.
Perfect size for my dragon. Holds heat very well and keeps humidity low. Easy set up and aesthetically appealing. I love this habitat and so does my dragon.
Its a Great Enclosure. Im still working on decorating it Calcifer has plenty of room. He still surfs, but not because he doesnt like it. He is a would much rather be out cuddling me or the cats kinda fella. Im glad he has a larger space though for those 12 hour days i do work. He does enjoy the space inside and for the price i couldnt beat it. I had a friend put it together. Im not so great at assembly but it seemed easy he got it together fast. The enclosure stays much warmer than the 40 gallon glass one i had him in. And i especially love the sliding doors. I give this a 5/5. Great size, great design, holds heat decently, Its beautiful, and also the representatives are quick to offer help are knowledgeable and courteous. If and when i get any other reptiles ill definatly return to zen habitats.
I’m not gonna lie, assembling this was a nightmare. HOWEVER, the company was super helpful, and now that it’s assembled, my beardie loves it. It’s a great habitat for an adult bearded dragon. He is still a little confused by the non-reflective doors, so I temporarily put sticky notes on them so he would stop walking into them.
I installed 36” lights in it and it’s looking good. This tank can’t be disassembled like other brands, but you really can’t beat the lightness of this one. Other tanks this size are usually around 90lbs.
Also, the Zenmat is fantastic. I’ve been searching for something like it for years.
Price is great and the enclosure is huge for my bearded
I could not have asked for a better tank for my bearded dragon.She is loving it. Very big and spacious
It's the best on the market and we really appreciate it. However, shortly after our dragon got to her new home, she developed eggs and this is definitely not gravid dragon proof. She has destroyed the beautiful plexiglass windows and we will need to replace these once we get through egg laying.
We needed a larger space for our Bearded Dragon and this tank looked beautiful online- I was a little bit nervous the product wouldn’t be as beautiful in person because it was so decently priced (compared to other things we saw for sale). When it finally arrived (shipping was a little slow due to supply chain issues), we were very pleased that it lived up to the pictures. It is as described- very clean and stylish but also feels like quality material and great functionality. We are happy with our purchase and so is our Beardie.
good product although I feel the instructions could be improved, I actually watched a YouTube video made by Zen Habitats that showed how to put it together. My only improvement suggestions would be a way to latch the doors as I am a bit worried my guys could find a way to get the doors open but they seem sturdy/heavy so probably this not an issue.
Take your time putting it together, rubber mallet is a must. If you but something together incorrectly, good luck separating the pieces. The front does have stickers saying front, but both sides say front left, doesn’t matter, they are both the front. After all said and done, I love the enclosure.

The tank works great for my 2 year old Bearded Dragon. I recommend getting the tank if you are looking for one.
