36x18x12 (33 Gallon) Reptile Enclosure
36x18x12 (33 Gallon) Reptile Enclosure
$10 OFF HABITATS W/ CODE HAB10Buying a PVC reptile enclosure is an important investment for your pet's wellbeing. We created this enclosure because we believe that reptile owners should have an economical housing option for their pet. Too many reptiles 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

This PVC open front terrarium measures 36"L x 18"W x 12"H, which makes it suitable for housing small, terrestrial exotic pets such as:
- sandfish skinks
- ocellated skinks
- Rankins dragons
- knob-tailed geckos
- banded geckos
- cave geckos
kenyan sand boas
- rough-scaled sand boas
- hognose snakes
- fire-bellied toads
- pacman frogs
- tomato frogs
This can be used as a snake or lizard cage, but please keep in mind that small colubrids can 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 reptile terrarium 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 reptile habitat 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 reptile tank, make sure you support the bottom when moving it.
Acrylic does scratch, so if you are using this enclosure for a reptile with sharp 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 the enclosure, 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 strongly recommend not interfering with your enclosure's built-in ventilation system, and instead increasing the frequency of misting or adding a reptile fogger to augment humidity.
Only unopened enclosures can be returned at our discretion.

Great product excellent customer service I will definitely order again in the future
We purchased 2 of these size enclosures for your our leopard geckos and set them up as bioactive. We previously purchased 2 of the 4x2x2 enclosures for our bearded dragons. Several improvements on the enclosures! From labeling the front or back of the pieces (so I did not put the top on backwards this time ) to changing how the bottom acrylic piece is installed (no grinding in the tracks from the dirt), we are very satisfied. The only issue with the bottom piece is the gap between the door, my leo has already stuck her head in there and got a little stuck We are going to add a small strip of foam to cover the gap.
fairly easy to put together. i wish there was instructions in the box. very nice design and the mesh screen is incredibly sturdy. however, the piece that makes the bottom, does move around. i wouldn't recommend these enclosures for anything that needs a high humidity. these really aren't an enclosure you can seal to keep moisture in. regardless, my leopard gecko loves it.
Easy to put together and a beautiful sleek look!
These enclosures are great and easy to assemble!
My first enclosure I ordered from this site. I never had a reptile habitat brand or PVC enclorue before and wanted to try it for my baby leopard gecko. Assembly was pretty easy and am overall satisifed with the quality of the enclosure. Planning on getting a 36x18x18 next! Would recommend.
