$10 OFF HABITATS W/ CODE HAB10Buying a terrarium is an important investment for your snake's wellbeing. We created this enclosure because we believe that reptile owners should have an economical housing option for their pet. Too many snakes are kept in inadequately sized enclosures, and one big reason is that enclosures are expensive!
- durable PVC panels
- aluminum frame
- heavy-duty screen
- not affected by humidity
- extremely lightweight
- easy to move
- easy to assemble
This reptile habitat measures 36"L x 18"W x 12"H, which makes it suitable for housing small, terrestrial snakes such as:
Kenyan sand boas
- rough-scaled sand boas
- hognose snakes
- Stimson's pythons
- Children's pythons
- egg-eating snakes
- viper boas
- garter snakes
- rosy boas
Please keep in mind that small colubrids may be able to escape through the gap between the sliding doors, so this enclosure is not recommended for young colubrids without modification.
Our reptile habitats are made with an aluminum frame and PVC panels for the bottom, back, and sides that slide into the frame. The top is a heavy-duty screen, and the front viewing panel and doors are acrylic.
Shipped flat. Includes a mallet for easy setup. No additional tools are required. A screwdriver can be used to tighten the screws for the light hanging rods and door handles, but do not make them too tight.
1" Stacker/Spacers are now available to stack multiple enclosures (up to 3 high).
The enclosure MUST be assembled on a hard surface. Carpet will not work.
This snake habitat comes with double-sided tape instead of part 1E. You will skip step 2C and will attach the acrylic panel using the provided tape.
The mounting bars do NOT have to be installed if you do not plan on mounting your lighting.
- Be sure to put the top on the correct way with the double track in the front.
- Be sure to remove the plastic protective layer included on some panels. Use a microfiber towel to remove any dusty appearance. If dust persists it may still have the plastic protective layer.
You can make the structure of your snake cage more secure by using a clear/black aquarium-safe silicone along the base and bottom 1-2” to make it more solid and able to hold substrate. This enclosure is not waterproof. You will need to use silicone to seal the bottom. You can spray the substrate but do not dump water directly into it.
Replacement screws for the door handles are easily found at any hardware store. They will be standard hardware that can be used for cabinets in general. A small washer can be added to the screws to make them more secure.
If you add a lot of weight to your snake cage, make sure you support the bottom when moving it.
Acrylic does scratch, so if you are using this enclosure for a reptile with nails the doors will scratch over time. If this is a problem for you, we recommend replacing the acrylic with glass doors from a local glass shop. We will soon offer glass doors as an upgrade!
To increase humidity in your snake habitat, you can purchase a 1/8” or 3/16” sheet of acrylic or PVC from your local hardware store to set on top of the screen. However, we recommend not interfering with your enclosure's built-in ventilation system and instead increasing the frequency of mistings and/or installing a reptile fogger.
Only unopened enclosures can be returned at our discretion.

So far so good
I love the look and how lightweight. I was able to assemble while my kids were running around me. Too bad I didn’t read the instructions as well as watching the YouTube video (the video didn’t mention to remove plastic before installation). I installed the panels before removing the plastic wrapping. Being that dissembling seems nearly impossible, I’ve spent hours trying to remove while assembled. I also ordered meal worms, and it seemed like half were dead on arrival.
