The 4'x2'x2' Wood Panel Bearded Dragon Enclosure by Zen Habitats was specifically designed with bearded dragons in mind. 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’ Bearded Dragon 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 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.
easy to set up. I love it
Sandra seems to enjoy her bigger space to move around, and the front opening doors are way more convenient than a tank.
My beardie LOVES it. So much more active. I love that it’s light weight and it really holds the heat in well. Was not hard to put together either.
My first bearded dragon bioactive Zen Habitats were done using the bamboo version since it was all that was available. I knew the moisture level of the lower substrate would most likely damage or weaken the bottom panel and lower part of the side panels so I created an insert using FRP (fiberglass reinforced plastic) wallboard and siliconed it in place with aquarium safe silicone. It worked great! After a year I removed all of the soil and decor to be able to stack the habitats with newly purchased spacers. There was zero damage to the habitat. The habitat held up amazingly with the weight of my bio. I used real rocks in addition to the substrate and the total weight was over 300 lbs! I am sure a factor in how well it held up was the insert I created, but I think it also says a lot about the durability of the Zen.
I love everything about these enclosures. I have 3 of the PVC version (purchased Oct 2019) and 2 of the Bamboo version (purchased in 2018). Bamboo version: great for arid setups; PVC version: great for higher humidity and/or bioactive setups. Everything else about them is the same in my opinion. I own bearded dragons, leopard geckos, Sudan plated lizard and a uromastyx.
For more detailed reviews that also apply to the bamboo version of the 4x2x2 enclosure, please look at the reviews I did under the 4x2x2 PVC version.
Best customer service ever!
Beautiful, Comfortable and Easy!
This thing goes together so easily, really solid construction. They kept it simple. It looks amazing! The floor to ceiling acrylic doors make it seem like our bearded dragon is really lounging with us in the room. I swear she watches TV with us. She is so happy and comfortable. If you want a house for your bearded dragon that is really a home, get this.
The greatest upgrade I could’ve hoped for
This enclosure is fantastic. The instructions were easy, the videos were very simple, the shipping was fast- and free! I love it.
Quite the upgrade from my bearded dragon’s 40 gallon. Highly suggest.
I have two bearded dragons, and purchased the tank stand cabinet, cabinet spacer and two enclosures. Very easy to assemble, high quality and absolutely beautiful. My dragons are very happy and love the amount of space they now have. Sliding doors make clean up so easy, and I love how all of the lights are contained and no wires showing. Absolutely love Zen Habitats. The products and customer service is excellent. Highly recommend!
I love this tank so much! It was pretty easy to put together, its very lightweight but super sturdy! My beardie loves all the space she has to run around and climb up. I would for sure reccomend this to anyone looking for an upgrade!
Example of How All Small Businesses Should Operate
I have had my ZenHabitat enclosure for about a year. I am more than pleased with the durability of the enclosure, hands down best price for best quality enclosure. But what I am more impressed with is Zen Habitats amazing customer service. When something goes wrong they do right by their customers.
Awesome habitat for a bearded dragon
I looked everywhere for a reasonable priced enclosure with front doors they are so expensive for this size so I ended up buying this Zen habitat because there was a lot of good reviews... and I am glad I did, not only is it a great habitat their customer service is one of the best!! my dragon loves his home .. And it is real easy to clean with the Zen mat I am really glad I purchased this thank you Zen habitats
3rd grader approved
In looking for a new enclosure for our class pet (bearded dragon), I was looking for something sturdy, easy to assemble, without giving up the curb appeal of our previous glass tank. We found a winner with Zen Habitats! My third graders love the front sliding door and always comment on how nice the bamboo walls look with our bearded dragon's decor and I loved how lightweight and easy it was to put together---was able to put it together without any additional assistance. Our dragon loves all the room he has now!
One of the best I've tried
I own 4 of these habitats with the cabinets (both small and large) for bearded dragons. I can't say enough postive about them. They are ridiculously easy to assemble. My dragons love the amount of space. I also like the mesh tops. There's a lot of air flow and they look amazing. There's nothing this size at this price point, either. I have purchased other enclosures for more money (with less space) and they were tricky to put together, they are hard to get the temperature regulated, and even 4 months later still have a plastic odor. We love our Zens!
One Happy Dragon!!
The habitat arrived in perfect condition. Assembly was a breeze. I put Apollo’s habitat together myself on Saturday, while watching the instructional video. It looks absolutely amazing. And most importantly Apollo is loving his new space!!! Thank you Zen Habitats I have one happy dragon here!!!
Karrie R Owen
I got the Zen last Dec-- its a beautiful tank and my husband said it was very easy assembling -- the only thing I didnt like was how slippery the floor was -- I ended up putting paper towels down till I could get my slated ceramic tile in -- after getting the tile in it has been a great tank to clean --- Hiccup seems to like it as well -- he does no glass surfing to come out even tho we do get him out he just seems to be content in the tank ---
I bought this for my bearded dragon, it was super easy to essemble, didn’t need any tools.
It is very roomy for my beardy and looks great with the rest of the furniture in my house. my only complaint is that i wish it had more bars at the top to have lights and such from. Other than that, this is great and i would buy again
I love this enclosure! Its beautiful, light weight and easy to assemble! I bought the enclosure, stand and mat. Will be getting the top piece soon! I think Loki approves of his new palace!
Do yourself a favor and get this enclosure!
Got our 4x2x2 enclosure last weekend and we love it! It took about 20 minutes to assemble. Our beardie is loving it so much. I have noticed that he seems happier and more relaxed with all the extra space. We upgraded from a 40 gal.
If you’re thinking of getting one but you’re not sure, do it! You will not be disappointed.
I also wanted to say that we were having trouble locating the acrylic doors (they have brown protective film on them that peels off) and I contacted support and they messaged me back super fast. Great customer service!!
A+ and 5 stars all the way!
I am totally amazed at this habitat!!! It is very easy to assemble and is of upmost quality! Our beardie loves it!
Great for hedgehogs too!
We were so excited to find Zen Habitats' 4x2x2 enclosure at a MA Reptile Show in Fall 2017. It was EXACTLY what we have been searching over a year for our hedgehog - good floor size; enough height to accommodate wheel; steel mesh ventilation top for heating lamp; holds heat well; light weight to lift & move around; easy to clean; and blends with home furniture! Not to mention the great price, free shipping, and how friendly & helpful Randy is! We love supporting local businesses.
Our initial order in Winter 2017 was cancelled because Randy was not satisfied with the manufacturing run. We applaud his commitment to deliver high quality products. Finally, we received our enclosure in Winter 2018. Clear video instructions allowed us to easily assembly the enclosure (without tools!) in <1 hour. We were highly impressed by this brilliantly designed product and were in LOVE. It was definitely worth the wait. We have been raving and showing off Odin's new home to other hedgehog owners.
