Taylor Crane's YouTube Review
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
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!
Had mine set up for about 4 months now and it’s a great enclosure. I have no complaints and my blue tongue skink is doing great in there. I’m sure it would work great for a bearded dragon or hedgehog as well.
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
Love this enclosure!
We upgraded our bearded dragon from a 40gal breeder tank to this since he had grown so big and needed more space, and I am HIGHLY satisfied with this enclosure. The wood panels are beautiful, it was incredibly easy to put together, and the doors come out completely which makes for easy cleaning. My bearded dragon, Ollie, loves it and has so much more room to spread out. It retains heat well and the steel top lets you fashion the UVB light to it. The sliding doors make for easy access to our boy. We love love love this enclosure! Thank you so much 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!
Great starter enclosure for a bearded dragon!
The old standard of using a 40 gallon tank to house a bearded dragon for its entire life is inadequate, and modern bearded dragon experts are recommending 4'x2'x2' as a more appropriate minimum for housing these delightful lizards. The Zen Habitats 4'x2'x2' Reptile Enclosure With Wood Panels is a great way to meet that standard without spending too much money. Its design is simple and lightweight, allows for plenty of ventilation through the mesh, cat-proof top, and provides a good amount of height to allow for a deep substrate and the addition of climbing objects and other tall decor. It also doesn't retain too much heat within the thin wood walls, so you can accomplish a better temperature gradient — and considering that bearded dragons prefer to bask at surface temperatures between 110-120°F, creating a good temperature gradient can be difficult!
For best results with this enclosure, I recommend mounting the heat lamp on top of the mesh, with a strong 24-36" T5 HO UVB mounted on the underside with twine or zip ties so the mesh doesn't block those valuable UVB rays. Other tips for success: use a piece of flat stone like flagstone, slate tile, or paving stone for the basking surface, measure temperatures with an infrared temp gun, and deck the enclosure out so your beardie has lots of opportunities to explore and exercise.
First, customer service was fantastic. We contacted them twice & they responded right away. Second, shipping was as promised. We bought this as a Christmas present & it shipped when promised. The setup was easy, the video instructions walked you right through it. The tank is gorgeous to look at, no need to put up backgrounds so our beardie doesn't see his reflection. Plenty of room inside to put a lot of decor, easy to clean. We love the front opening doors, it makes it easy to get inside & the doors are easy to remove when needed. We also love that it isn't as heavy as a traditional glass tank & it holds heat well. We are extremely satisfied with our purchase & have already recommended Zen Habitats to a few people!!
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!!!
Perfect for Bearded Dragon
When we found out we were adopting a Bearded Dragon we immediately began researching what we needed to provide an optimum environment. We didn't want something that "would do"- we wanted to be able to provide this captive creature everything it needed to live a long fulfilled life. I am so glad I stumbled on Zen Habitats as it checked every box I needed- roomy, front opening, seriously cat proof screen top, no reflections, economical to heat, light weight and easy to move, easy to wrangle and mount all the lighting and accessories needed, beautiful in my home, easy to clean, and super easy to assemble. There's not much I'd ask to be different. If you want your creature to not merely survive but instead thrive in your home then the best enclosure you can find is the first step you need to take and this is indeed the best enclosure you can find. Don't waste money looking for a cheap enclosure then upgrading because you need more room then upgrading again because glass is hard to heat or 100 other reasons. Do it right the first time and get a Zen Habitat- it might actually save you money in the long term because you will never need anything better. I highly recommend the mat as well- it cleans easily, lies perfectly flat, and is heavy enough that it is difficult for insects to get underneath it. You need this enclosure!
Love this enclosure!
This enclosure is fantastic. My beardie has lots of room. I love the top screen and the support beams for lights. I am looking forward to ordering another one for our second beardie soon!
This enclosure is AMAZING! I was so excited when I came across Zen Habitats - it’s such a rad deal especially considering how large it is!! Shipping was super fast and everything came in perfect condition. Assembly couldn’t get any easier; I watched the video. Customer service is also great!! I had asked a question over Facebook Messenger & I got a response not even an hour later. My Oliver is so happy! Thank you so much Zen Habitats!!!

Great cages for arid species!
I have a total of 4 Zen cages now (might be ordering more)...They are so easy to put together, especially by myself! I love the sturdy top, the contemporary look, and the overall design. I have bearded dragons & uromastyx...they all thrive in these cages from day 1! The lighting is easy to install inside the cages with lightweight wire through the top panel & utilizing the bars. I love the mats too - makes cleanup a breeze! They fit so tight that insects can't get under them - or you can seal them with aquarium silicone. I love the spacer bar - provides easy stacking with enough ventilation. They are the centerpieces of my living room; bedrooms; office; etc...yeah, we are a little reptile crazy here!

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
Love the Enclosure
We purchased an enclosure for a bearded dragon a few weeks ago. The packages arrived in good condition and the tank & stand were very easy to assemble (even with one person!). It's very light so it's easy to move, though if I had small children, I might anchor it to the wall for more security.
I love the door handles, it's very easy to open/close without much noise. Also appreciate the heavy-duty screen.
I think what stood out to me the most have been the staff! I've called several times and they've been so helpful and accommodating.
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!

Easy assembly, even for mechanically impaired persons. Looks amazing. Easy to clean, ample room for decor and just lounging. My bearded dragon has plenty of space. I will likely order another one.
It's easy to assemble, made of high quality material and obviously it's very spacious. Our bearded dragon loves it already! I think this is the best deal out there for a 4x2x2 tank, great product for a great price. Thank you!
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.
