Taylor Crane's YouTube Review
The 4'x2'x2' Wood Panel Reptile Enclosure by Zen Habitats is great for desert lizards, snakes, tortoises, and other small animals that require a dry environment. Zen Habitats Reptile Enclosure uses 1” anodized aluminum, bamboo finished wood panels, front sliding/removable acrylic doors, a galvanized steel screen top, and a 6" substrate shield (to keep loose substrate in the habitat when the door is open). The steel screen top includes screen support bars and wire grommets to give you the flexibility to install your lighting fixtures inside or outside the enclosure.
Why Zen Habitats 4’x2’x2’ Reptile Enclosures?
Large enclosures – 120-gallon equivalent. Many reptiles thrive when given room to run, jump, and climb. 4’x2’x2’ reptile enclosures are 3 times larger than 40 gallon breeder tanks.
Non-reflective surfaces reduce anxiety. Most reptiles are territorial and do not like their own reflections.
Front-sliding doors minimize stress when approaching your pet. Many reptiles and amphibians have a parietal eye which helps them spot aerial predators. A lot of reptile tanks open from the top - approaching from above can cause stress for your pet.
Bamboo finished wood panels retain heat better than glass. Wood panels have been shown to retain heat up to 10x better than glass.
Substrate Shield included. All Zen Habitats come with an optional substrate shield for those who use loose substrate.
Lightweight – Only 48 lbs. fully assembled.
Easy to assemble – A rubber mallet sometimes helps.
Many other lizards, snakes and tortoises that thrive in lower humidity environments (such as a hognose snake, king snake, uromastyx, and more).
Great alternative for the following size aquariums/terrariums: 33 gallon, 37 gallon, 38 gallon, 40 gallon, 45 gallon, 50 gallon, 55 gallon, 65 gallon, 75 gallon, 90 gallon, 120 gallon
Love the cage itself; I’ll be purchasing another for my youngest dragon soon.
However the directions aren’t well written and I think the instructional video could’ve been better quality. The cages you make are wonderful; that being said they aren’t cheap. So simple and straightforward directions would be a nice touch for the purchaser during assembly.
Thanks . (:
Love the look and quality of the enclosure. Easy to assemble and I was kept informed on my shipment.
It was very easy to set up. It’s very high quality.
Zen Habits is an amazing product. You get a beautiful, reliable product at a very reasonable price. My beardie loves his new mansion and I do too!
Was a little stressful to put together.. but only because I had limited room to do so. Amazing Quality ♡♡♡♡♡ 10/10
We love our Zen enclosure! Ordering was quick and easy and shipping was very fast!
An excellent enclosure...nice and spacious...easy to access and clean. Only complaint is that since there is nothing that actually holds the parts together I find that I occasionally have to back the pieces back into place or risk exposing small holes that feeders can easily use to escape.
The enclosure is awesome compared to the 40 gal tank I previously had. It is lighter even though its much bigger. The dragon can actually move around. He seems happier. He climbs from one ends to the other whereas in his previous tank he sat on his rock all day.
I was apprehensive to spend this much money on a tank but I think it is the nicest one I have seen so far. I also like how the doors open out instead of the lid lifting off. It has made a difference when you dont have to put the food or water in above the dragon.
Love the setup
Easy to put together. Great enclosure!
Great just bad instructions and bad videos to set it up.
Shipping was a nightmare, not due to seller but fedex. Highly recommend a rubber mallet just because some of the plastic connectors were cut to large and needed to be shaved down. The top was a little tricky but after all set up it was worth it. The sliding glass isn’t that smooth and makes noise when opening. A really nice tank, a little on the pricey side, 250 would definitely be a perfect price because of shipping and quality. But it’s worth it for the sake of your reptile
Can’t say enough about this company!!! From the quality of the cages to the amazing customer care, it was a wonderful experience. Not to mention that they are very fairly priced in my opinion, shipping is $60 for cages elsewhere and it’s free here so the cages are basically $270 and well worth it. Bask in the glory of my ZEN TOWER lol, everyone loves it and compliments me on it. Ignore the trash bags my zen mats are otw, anyways if your on the fence about getting one then let help you out DO IT!
OMG!!! Pictures don’t do justice with how HUGE this tank is!! It was fairly easily to put together the only issues we ran into were the corner plastic pieces they need to be a bit smaller!
but other than that this tank is so wonderful it was easy to regulate the specific temperatures I loveee the front sliding door it makes life so much easier! We added tile and built a bunch of stuff inside and i am in loveeee with it! So is sunshine<3 BUY IT WORTH EVERY PENNY YALL!
The 4x2x2 bamboo panel enclosure is perfect for my bearded dragon. Holds the heat in well while also letting humidity out. Super easy to put together and very light for its size. I highly recommend this as an upgrade for a beardie or any other arid environment reptile around the same size, I’ll never have to buy another enclosure for my dragon
Very Sturdy and well made enclosures! Easy assembly and lightweight. I bought three and assembled them in under 2 hours. Stacked all of them along with the deluxe spacer that I am using for husbandry/food storage. My dragons are so much more active the past few days as they have much room to follow their temperature gradients and behaviors. I noticed that the tanks retain adequate temperatures regardless of room temp which is a huge! If you are looking to upgrade to a 4x2x2 this is the definitely worth the price, considering how cheap it is compared to other enclosures on the market. Custom service is also spectacular and
Beautiful enclosure. Great upgrade from my 40 gallon breeder tank. Sliding front doors are very convenient.
Love it!! So glad I chose to buy this! It was super easy to assemble also! ❤️
This is a lightweight and attractive cage. It was easy to assemble and I appreciate the ability to mount lighting fixtures inside.
Best decision to buy this set up my girl loves it and she is already so much happier even more colorful
I have a bearded dragon
10/10 would buy again
My beardie and I love his new home! It went together super easy and looks amazing. With the beautiful bamboo look and the natural rocks and drift wood i have in there it gives him the feeling of his natural habitat. I was surprised at how easy it is to keep the humidity low and keep it warm enough without adding extra lights.
Ordered two habitats for our bearded dragons. The habitats were easy to set up. Absolutely love them, the lizards seem happy and we will be ordering again soon for our third dragon. We also have two ball pythons that will be ordering habitats for in the future.
The instructions were kind of confusing and the video didn't help very much. But the customer service was great when I got stuck!
Love these cages!
Great setup, easy to put together and my dragon loves the room
This is a great tank, I love the bamboo look and the sliding doors. Cleaning is so much easier and handling my bearded dragon better and less stressful for him. Highly recommend.
Metal was bent. Still working on trying to get the final piece in place but no dice. The first part seemed so easy but I don’t know if we’ll be able to finish putting it together. It has mad mochi mucho sad
Our dragon loves his new home. First day he moved in, he started eating his salad from the bowl instead of having to be hand fed his greens. I don’t know why he made the sudden switch but, I assume it was his way of telling us he approved his new home.
Setting it up was a bit frustrating for myself. With a sound mind to help, we got it together rather quickly. If I ever aquire another dragon, I will definitely buy another zen enclosure.
Great enclosure. Very spacious but I do wish the door panels would be made of real glass. My beardie scratched most of the panels the same day I set it up... pretty disappointing considering the price. Also, some vents on the sides and/or back would be nice too. I struggle to keep the humidity down.
My dragon loves it. He is sleeping in the hide on the left side which is a large flower pot that I cut a chunk out of far a door and flipped upside down (left rear). UVB lights are hanging from the supporting cross bars on the inside of the screen top with S hooks and chains. I do not know if Zen Habitats planned it this way or just a luck accident but I placed a 150 watt heat lamp on the top left and a 75 watt just right of center - My basking spot (left side) is 105 degrees and the cool side (right side) is 85. Perfect for him. Veggies are served at the front right corner on white tile as you can see. The black mat I purchase is underneath everything and makes the enclosures easy to clean. Zen Habitats - THANK YOU!!!
Excellent enclosure! What first brought me to buy it was the price and boy am I glad I went for it. It’s holding ~70lbs of excavator clay and doing great (I made a barrier between the clay and wood panels, not sure how well it’d hold up otherwise). If you’re considering buying this for your animal I would 100% recommend it :)
Really easy to assemble and my bearded dragon loves it! It has room for larger accessories that he can actually mount. I’ve noticed a huge improvement in his mood! After this tank I’m honestly sad I had him live in a glass enclosure for this long
I was so completely blow away by my Zen Habitat for my Tokay geckos. They’re loving their huge space!!! The enclosure was so easy to build thanks to the video instructions on YouTube, and the enclose is extremely sturdy!! Highly recommend!!!
I absolutely love our terrarium from Zen Habitats. It’s hold temps and humidity to perfect levels. It’s roomy and my dragon is very happy with it. Also, very easy to assemble.
We love our Zen habitat! It took awhile to get the temperatures right since it is much bigger than our old tank. Our little Norbert has so much more space now and he loves it. It’s nicely made and fairly easy to put together. It’s also much lighter than glass tanks of the same size and affordable.
We love it!
I have 2x zen habitats 4x2x2’s now. 7 to go so all my reptiles have matching homes. Great quality.
My Beardy loves all the extra space he now has! It was a little tricky to get suction cups to stick on the wood but a little help of Vaseline on the suction cups did the trick!
Our pet is very happy in his new habitat.
Thank you so much!!! The folks at Zen Habitats were so incredibly helpful and the habitat is beautiful!!! it was incredibly easy to put together and it really looks great- we’ve gotten a lot of compliments. we got the zen mat and it’s also great (we have not had an issue at all with it getting too hot). Our beardie loves her new enclosure! It was an investment— but much cheaper than some other enclosures I looked at. And it’s really a nice looking addition to the room, which was important to us (even if it is just the kids playroom). Thank you!!!
Extremely happy and impressed with the enclosure and base. Absolutely love it well worth the wait. Will be buying more in the future. Keep up the great work
She loves her new enclosure
Absolutely love this massive piece and it's become the coolest centerpiece in the house! It took some work to put together but, I think after about 2 hours by myself I was all done. And it's still lightweight, so it was a breeze picking it up with two people. He loves his castle!
My bearded dragon loves his new enclosure. It's well built and was pretty easy to out together. It was well worth the wait.
We lover our new habitat!! Very easy to setup and well worth the money
Simple to put together. Easy to lift. Seems so open and roomy for our beardie. Best price too.
My beardie loves his new home. It is a huge enclosure but so much lighter and easier to move than his old enclosure.
Our bearded dragon absolutely loves all the room he has! He has become more active since we upgraded him to the Zenhabitats cage!
I love this enclosure! It’s easy to put together and they are beautiful! I love that the doors are easy to take out. It makes cleaning a breeze. I use a vinyl base so I did not install the substrate shield. My bearded dragon loves his new home!
I was so excited to get Norbert's forever home! I followed the instructional video provided by these guys...it was very helpful!! Super easy to assemble. I felt empowered! And It's So big!! I had ordered an extra large reptile hide (the company accidentally sent me 2...oops?) They both fit with plenty of space. I'm very satisfied.
Love, love love! Spikearina is so happy with her new 4x2x2 vivarium and so are we. Zen habitats have earned our buisness for life. Customer service agent April is amazing.
I love this company. Well worth the wait and our beardie loves her new home. Vivarium is easy to set up and very roomy. We went with the 4x2x2. Lights inside and still room for different levels of fun for our Spikearina! Thank you Soooooo much Zen Habitats! We are life customers! I also highly reccomend April! She is a wonderful live zen master and I spoke with her several times about what tank to purchase. Seriously the best in the buisness in customer service!
I have a 4x2x2 bamboo enclosure for my Bearded dragon on the bottom. My beardie appreciates all of the extra space and opportunities for enrichment! Then I have a one inch spacer on top to provide proper ventilation. On top is my 4x2x16 pvc enclosure for my Blue Tongue Skink. The humidity shield and pvc keep his humidity up and he has been more active than ever and actually tamed down since being in this enclosure!
Exactly as described, easy to assemble. Love how the temperature and humidity is easily controlled due to the insulation. Excellent product.
I am very happy with my 4x4x2 and am awaiting the stand. Best purchase this year
Thank you, Zen
Easy as the video shows top put it together. Danni absolutely loves how mitch moor room she has as di I. Had to make minor adjustments because the height if the cage, no biggie. The sliding front is so much better to have. No complaints at all.
I absolutely love it!
Wow! Zeb loves his new home, so much more room for him to roam. I am so impressed by how lightweight yet solid this enclosure is. Now it's time to fill it up with more furniture for our boy.
The enclosure is PERFECT! I was trying to find an enclosure to upgrade from a 40 gallon that my beardie is currently in. As I was searching, I saw many 75 gallon enclosures that were WAY too expensive for the size. I then saw a Taylor Crane video of the enclosure and I immediately thought that the enclosure was perfect, and to no surprise it definitely is. The size is perfect, the price is great and is the same price as those 75 gallon enclosures I found, and the bamboo design is SO classy. Zen Habitats is definitely the way to go! I have a couple more things to add to Mr. Squiggles enclosure but other than that it is PERFECT.
Our bearded dragon Pablo loves his new much bigger enclosure. He's like a whole new dragon and way more active
Our bearded loves his new home!
I upgraded my beardies tank and she loves it She's in a mansion now!!
Really love this enclosure! We have a different one for our other bearded dragon and now we regret buying that one. This one is just so much better in every way!
Though it did take a while to arrive, they kept me updated on its status, which I appreciated. The instructions for assembly were not updated and there was nothing to indicate the fact that some of the pieces had changed or identify the individual parts, but customer service was prompt in their response when I contacted them. They explained why the parts didn't match the instructions and that the door panels were the pieces in the box covered in paper (I thought they were part of the packaging because there was no sticker or stamp to indicate what they were). I just wish I didn't have to contact them in the first place. The product itself is fantastic! It is the perfect size for my adult beardie and she loved all the space! There's enough room to create areas for her to climb, hide, bask, eat, and bathe if she wants to! I love the material it's made of. Sturdy, but light enough for me to lift it onto its stand alone. Its easy to clean and looks great! I have already recommended it to a new beardie owner.
Such a beautiful new home for my bearded dragon! She loves it and is so relaxed in this stress-free zone. Super easy to assemble. Thanks again!
Love love love this enclosure, lightweight and so easy to put together a must buy!!!
Very easy to put together. Blizzard loves the extra space he now has. I was even surprised I was able to use suction cups as I was trying to avoid using command hooks. I have recommended this enclosure to several members of the bearded dragon group I run. Thanks Zen
I love this enclosure. It was very easy to put together. The hardest part was removing the protective paper from the plexiglass pieces. I watched the video on YouTube prior to putting it together and it was honestly a breeze. I highly recommend this enclosure!
There isn’t a thing that I don’t love about this tank. It’s impossible to find a tank the proper size for a bearded dragon in local pet shops (and big box stores) so I was thrilled to find something online and even more thrilled that it wasn’t going to cost a ton of money. The material is absolutely perfect and durable; thanks to the video instructions I had no problem putting it together by myself; and most importantly of all, Luna is much happier in her much roomier new home. I’m so thrilled with the whole purchase of this tank and highly recommend any bearded dragon owner to purchase one as well!
Wrex loves all the room she has to run around in now! Pretty straightforward to put together and light enough for a small person like me to move by myself.
Tank came as expected, assembly was easy. Provides ample space, the top mesh and bars within make lighting placement quite simple. Good airflow through the whole thing yet still seems to keep heat. Nice clean zen look like look of the tank almost seems to calm me a bit.
My beardie, Cheddar, seems to quite enjoy it as well.
Be wary of dirt between the plexiglass doors, can cause them to become scratched easily.
Love it! Our bearded baby is so happy in his new home!
Love the product easy to put together. But when it did finally show up after months of waiting, parts of the walls were damaged, it will be on the back and some of it is covered from the frame. Not worth waiting months for a new one.
Beyond satisfied. Assembly was easy and my dragon loves it
Wonderful!! Easy to assemble and my beardie loves it!!
We got this for our bearded dragon when we noticed that he was not happy with his first cage, a 40 gallon of the kind commercially available at pet stores. The two months we had to wait for it to arrive were sad for him; he surfed the glass daily and constantly looked grumpy and judgmental ( as lizards often do.) Then this tank came. Setup was easy, made even easier with a rubber mallet and carefulness. Then came the moment of truth. He has not surfed once since we got his tank and, shockingly, he has gone from looking annoyed all the time to being a hopeful little dude. My only mistake in ordering this tank was not getting it sooner.
My little lady loves the room! We upgraded her from a 50gallon to this guy because it felt cramped for her. She can turn around without her tail hitting any part of the tank, and she can even play and run from side to side or up and down her hammocks without any issues. Super easy to set up, and super affordable for a big tank!!
Set up was a breeze. My daughter had it all set up before I got home from work. Dino loves it. Was checking it all out when he first got in.
So much bigger in person. My drago loves it!!
The enclosure we got from Zen Habitats is perfect! It is beautiful, highly functional, and our beardie loves it! Just as importantly, Zen Habitat’s customer service is the best I’ve seen. We had a small issue with one of the pieces and Randy shipped a new piece immediately. He’s also always responded to emails incredibly quickly and is kind and easy to communicate with— we are lucky to have him making such snazzy digs for our reptiles.
I absolutely love this enclosure! It looks amazing and it is VERY spacious! I also got the zen mat and zen habitat stand, which are also amazing! This enclosure retains heat well which is a plus. It also very well built. Not heavy and easy to move which is great for me. I love love love the screen at the top too. It has bars where you can hang your lights with a place for your Cords to bed through in the back. I have been recommending this enclosure to everyone I know and I will continue too spread the word. Zen also has THE BEST customer service! If I could give my overall experience 10 stars I would.
Our massive bearded dragon outgrew her starter tank in about 3 months, and outgrew her 55 gallon by the time she was a year old. We decided to make the investment in a real habitat, not a glass aquarium. I put this together myself in about an hour and a half, even with a couple mess ups. I am thrilled with the habitat. Goes together easily and with durable but light materials. The bamboo panels have ended our beardie’s glass surfing and she has so much space to roam and hunt. Truth be told, she really just hangs out on the extra large rope hammock we got, which fits fantastically in one corner of the habitat. The sliding doors are amazing and have made taking her out a breeze, plus no more scratched up arms! For reference, our beardie is about 22” long, 6” side to side at the widest part of the belly, and over 3” across at her head. She’s a big girl, and this habitat is plenty big enough for her to run laps...if she ever leaves her hammock.
I love this setup for my bearded dragon! I had her in a smaller cage while she was a baby and as soon as she grew out of that I ordered this one. It’s perfect! It does take a minute to put together but it’s not too hard and it’s totally worth it. I bought the stand to go with it and its all of good quality. I recommend this to all my friends with reptiles.
I’m using it for a hamster. It makes a visually appealing and very large set up. With minor modifications I am able to fit up to 22 inches high and 20 inches long of bedding comfortably on my hamsters burrowing end with plenty of room for a wheel, water bottle, and toys on the other end with six inches of bedding. My hamster has never been happier and I’ve never been happier with another enclosure. The sliding glass doors also make it so much easier to interact with her in a non-stressful way. Beyond the large price tag it is perfect for a hamster
I got this enclosure for my bearded dragon and we both love it! It looks very sleek and stylish and has plenty of room for him to roam. Much better than anything you can find at a regular pet store. It’s also easy to clean and assemble. I assembled it alone within 30 minutes and the video instructions were very helpful and easy to find on YouTube. I also love that it’s lightweight. Would definitely purchase again.
We love this enclosure and more importantly so does our Bearded Dragon. There's loads of room, it's easy to assemble and the quality is great. Highly recommend and is a much better option than the options you would typically see in the pet stores.
Zen Habitats is a wonderful company with a superior product. Customer service is attentive and the assembly was a breeze. My Uro loves all his room to roam and we will be upgrading our dragon as well.
Randy was very responsive when I had questions regarding my order and when it was going to arrive. It arrived in one big box and was easy to assemble. I watched their video on how to assemble it on their website which was extremely helpful. I absolutely love my Zen! This was the best purchase I made for my beardie, he absolutely loves his new home and no longer window surfs. I would order from here again in a heartbeat!
Our 9 month old Bearded Dragon loves his new habitat.
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.
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!!!
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!!
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!

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!
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!

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 ---
