Buying a terrarium is an important investment for your pet 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!

The Reptile Habitats 48x24x12 (60 Gallon) PVC Snake Enclosure is a great way to house your pet snake:

  • durable PVC panels
  • aluminum frame
  • heavy-duty screen
  • not affected by humidity
  • extremely lightweight (25lbs!)
  • easy to move
  • easy to assemble

This PVC snake terrarium measures 48"L x 24"W x 12"H, which makes it suitable for housing small to medium-sized, terrestrial snakes such as:

  • Kenyan sand boas
  • rough-scaled sand boas
  • hognose snakes
  • kingsnakes
  • milksnakes

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. We will soon offer rigid glass doors as an upgrade!




This enclosure is 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).


Reptile Habitats enclosures MUST be assembled on a hard surface. Carpet will not work.

The 48x24x12 snake enclosure comes with double-sided tape instead of part 1E. You will skip step 2C and will attach the acrylic panel using the provided tape.

When assembling your Reptile Habitats snake terrarium:

  • 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 the enclosure 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.

If you lose one, 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 a PVC snake tank, make sure you support the bottom when moving it.

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 don't recommend interfering with your enclosure's built-in ventilation system. Instead, we suggest misting more often and/or adding a reptile fogger as needed.



Only unopened enclosures can be returned at our discretion.
