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.
Fantastic enclosure. Haven't had any problems so far. My bearded dragon Kaida seems to be liking it a lot. It was helpful following the written directions and watching the video at same time for building the enclosure. I recommend including information about the door wraps in the main instruction manual. We put ours on because we thought they were needed and we later learned that it is not necessary for our situation. They block the view of the enclosure and we wish that we had not put them on.
Perfect for my bearded dragon.
Cheech is a rescue and is loving his new enclosure and is now living his best life with us. It's sturdy and well built and customer service is amazing!!
I will definitely be reordering from Zen. The tank arrived within 2 days and my son was very surprised and loved it.
I love It! It's easy to assemble and it's stable. The sliding doors make life much easier for multiple reasons. Bowser has lots of room to roam now. I also love that it's wooden. I don't have to worry about a background so he can't see his refection.
Really love the simple design and how much room Mushu now has to run around very pleased with this purchase
This is exactly what we were looking for! Upgraded from a 40gallon enclosure around Meeps year old birthday. Assembly was easy enough that for my 14 year old. Temperature is much better regulated than our old glass enclosure. Meep loves it & so do we!
Amazing cages very easy to set up. Love ability to stack them. Company has super fast delivery and very responsive customer service. Will use them for all reptile needs.
We absolutely love this Habitat!!!! Thank you ☺️
I really like what Zen Habitats is doing. There’s no other company like them in our country who is so innovative while also keeping the costs reasonable for their customers. I really like that I can put tons of deep substrate and that it comes with lock for the sliding doors. It was very easy to put together and I like that it can also easily come apart. The shipping was ridiculously fast. It was here in within three business days of placing my order. Most other companies take months to ship out. I will definitely be getting more enclosures from Zen Habitats as my reptile collection grows.
My dragon was so happy with this new enclosure!! Super easy to set up, quick shipping, and customer service was amazing! My little Yoda has so much room to run and play in his new home! I'll definitely be coming back for the stand or maybe the expansion kit!
Just what we needed. Wish it came in more colors.
I love the look of the habitat and my beardie seems to really like it as well. My only complaint is that putting it together was more difficult than the instructions and videos implied. Many of the corner pieces needed a lot of strong hammering to get them all the way in. Even a rubber mallet created some damage on the metal side pieces.
Absolutely love the enclosure, and my beardie does too! When it first got delivered, i assembled part of it wrong and messed it up. Customer service was wonderful and replaced three parts free of charge, which arrived in two days. Setting the cage up took about a half hour and was super easy. The cage looks awesome and my beardie is so much happier
I’m very happy that this was so easy to put together. Since it’s not glass, set up was pretty fast and easy for me to install on top of a 4ft platform ( I’m 5’1”). I don’t think I could’ve done it by myself. The front opening sliding doors are great. The screen top is strong enough to hold a double basking lamp and uvb strip lamp. Also it held up well with a 13 lb cat which I had to shoo away. I’m very happy with this enclosure and I recommend it to anyone needing a low humidity enclosure.
It's true to it's description! Huge upgrade and my beardie is happy with more room to around. However, I gave it 4 stars because the building process took longer than expected and you absolutely need a rubber mallet to help and some patience. I had a corner piece break on me, but customer service was also understanding and shipped me a new corner piece no questions asked. Very helpful team. Last thing I dont care for is none of the decor can stick to the sides like I was hoping so I had to get a little creative on decorating
My beardie is overall happy and at the end of the day I am happy too. It is a beautiful enclosure and perfect for a bearded dragon.
My hamhock loves it! Runs around and the temperatures as well as humidity are easy to control with this enclosure!
I have mixed feelings on the overall enclosure. As for positives, it's lightweight compared to several other enclosures. The wood looks really nice and seems to hold heat well! It was fairly easy to set-up. I think peeling the paper off the acrylic was the most difficult part outside of figuring out how the doors work.
Speaking of the doors, the bad things. Listen, this enclosure is incredibly easy to set-up and it's a good enclosure. It really is. However, the materials themselves are pretty cheap. It's not the most expensive enclosure out there but, this is still fairly expensive. My friend helped me build this and we had such a struggle with these doors and I still do not trust them to hold. The materials feel a little flimsy. I can work with that but, I know some people don't like that. Something to keep in mind.
All in all, I don't hate this enclosure. I really don't. It's easy to build and lightweight. It's not the best enclosure but it's certainly not the worst. I'd say if you want an enclosure for your bearded dragon, this works well. Mine loves it.
Side note: Get the mat. Believe me, it's vastly easier to clean.
Easy set up great quality got 2 and both of my beardies love there enclosure
High quality, packaged extremely well, easy as possible to set up, and couldn't imagine having a better forever home for our dragon.
Looks great, cleans great, holds temps and low humidity as well
After all the research I am so glad I chose this one. Customer service is fantastic as well!
Just get it already!
Love my bearded dragons set up well worth the money , easy set up with the video. I would order from this company again they were very nice and communicated well.
Our only gripe is that the doors are made out of plexiglass and covered in some kind of paper film. The paper film is really hard to get off and covered on both sides so no matter how hard you try to get it off without scratching the plexiglass it’s still going to happen. And the scratches are very noticeable which make the whole enclosure look old and used. Otherwise it’s good for our bearded dragon. We even tried soaking the doors in hot soapy water and it was still hard to get off.
Great cage! Drake our beardie loves his new habitat. Easy to assemble just pay attention and rewind the video if needed.
Awesome customer service!
My Bearded Dragon Norbert Absolutely Loves His Zen. He Is The King Of His Castle
This cage is great. Very large. Assembly was straight forward. I did have to secure the plastic corners with some adhesive because they are press fit into the rails and some don't sit as tight, but final product looks very nice and goes well with light colored floors, like natural bamboo floors.
I broke a corner piece and got it stuck in the rod.. replacements came in a timely manner. Nice and big!
The Zen habitat 4x2x2 is by far the best quality and best size for a bearded dragon! We didn’t want to spend money on a small enclosure first, as it seemed like a waste of money. This is perfect for baby/juvenile/adult beardies! Easy to build (video on website). Easy to maintain heat/humidity. Easy to clean the Zen mat off (should have wiped it out quick before this photo!). We just need more decorations to make it a more natural home. Recommend Zen products hands down!
The customer service cannot be beat! My box was damaged in shipping and when I sent an email about it the replacement part was shipped the same day. If you watch the video the enclosure is very easy to put together. I’m extremely happy with my purchase and the customer service and my little guy is loving his new home!
Great seteup would recommend to anyone who asks.
So far my dragon loves it and there is plenty of room for it to grow in. Putting it together was pretty easy. Easy to keep it clean if you order the floor mat for it.
Easy to purchase, it was shipped the next day and I received it 3 days later! 30 minutes to assemble by myself. Looks great and Ragnar loves it! Definitely get the mat!
It has so much space & wasn’t hard to assemble. Customer service is great!
Zen will go above & beyond to help you!! I broke two corner pieces when putting it together & they shipped me more for free. My beardie loves his home!!
Very nice tank. Definitely a step up from his old 40 gallon tank.
Easy to put together, shipped quickly, and well made.
Our beardie has been needing a larger space and this one is perfect for giving him more room. Everything arrived undamaged; however, the plastic corners that connect the metal frame were a little tough to fit together so a rubber mallet is a must to put it together without breaking it. It's pretty lightweight which is good for moving around but would like it to be a little heavier to feel more stable. Overall though a good purchase for the price and limited options for getting a bigger habitat!
I love this tank and my bearded dragon loves it, definitely will be getting different sizes for my future reptiles
Great enclosure for sure would recommend to and beardie owner for sure
Bandit Loves It! It was easy to assemble!
Delivery was supposed to be the middle of June but they changed the date on their website to the middle of July after I ordered my habitat. Also pieces fit so tightly one broke while trying to put it together and they are impossible to take apart once habitat is assembled. For the price you pay for one of these habitats it should be easier to assemble and you should get instructions with the box instead of having to jump to there website.
It was so easy to put together and Dakota (bearded dragon) loves it! It keeps the temperature and humidity even and there is a ton of space for her. She even got used to the rubber mat right away. It is so easy to clean and her nails dig in easily to the mat.
Easy to put together, sturdy and my dragon loves his huge new home
Bigger and better than I expected! He has so much more room to run around
I love the zen terrarium! It’s perfect! He has his forever home.
It works good
Love it, got both of my beardies one.
My beardy, Elliot is so happy in his Zen Habitat.
great size for the price and i love the bamboo! our little dude would get scared of his reflection in his old glass tank but not anymore! he seems less anxious with all this new space and so much calmer and happier. great tank!
Cage is beautiful. MUCH larger then the last. I would recommend higher wattage lights to compensate for the area. Wonderful craftsmanship.
Assembly was a little tough just because the corner pieces are tight. In the video it looks easy but it was not easy for us. But the tank is awesome. Our beardie is so happy and loves jumping onto her sunbathing area. She loves her new home. I definitely would recommend.
Great experience. Updated us as soon as they had information on when we would expect our Zen Habitat (it was back ordered). Super easy to put together and our little Gamora seems like a much happier bearded dragon. I wish I didn’t waste money on my previous tank and purchased this originally. Highly recommend habitat as well as the mat to go with it. Great company!!
Our kit didn't come with a mallet and it was quite hard to "snap" everything into place. Aside from that, I'm really sad about the screen, came with two wonky spots. The screen is quality screen as I can't finagle those two parts back into place, but it doesn't look too good.
Easy to put together!! Also got the mat that fits perfectly for easy clean up!
My bearded dragon loves her new tank and her new setup, she seems happier now
I'm a complete idiot when it comes to assembling things, needless to say I broke some pieces. This company has been more than helpful with getting me all the replacements I need!!
Took 2 months to receive …get your needs elsewhere
My bearded dragon Gandalf absolutely loves his new enclosure. He has so much room to walk around and climb as well. I would definitely recommend buying the mat from Zen Habitats that goes with the 4x2x2 enclosure. He is a very happy beardie!
Easy to set up with the video they provided, and my bearded dragon loves it.
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!
