Buying an 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!

The Reptile Habitats 48x24x18 (90 Gallon) PVC Reptile Enclosure is the perfect way to house your pet reptile:
  • durable PVC panels
  • aluminum frame
  • heavy-duty screen
  • not affected by humidity
  • extremely lightweight (25lbs!)
  • easy to move
  • easy to assemble

This open front reptile terrarium measures 48"L x 24"W x 18"H, which makes it suitable for housing small to medium-sized, terrestrial exotic pets such as:

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.

PRODUCT SPECS

Reptile Habitats enclosures 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). 

ASSEMBLY NOTES

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

When assembling your PVC reptile tank:

  • 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 terrarium 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 panel terrarium, 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 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 don't recommend interfering with your enclosure's built-in ventilation system. Instead, mist more frequently and/or add a reptile fogger to maintain humidity.

SAFETY WARNING

We have recently become aware of a potential issue when using halogen bulbs on our screen top. Our screen has been tested at high temperatures, but we have reason to believe that some bulbs when placed too close to the screen create such extreme heat concentrated in one area that it can create a scorch mark. At this time we do not suggest using any of these bulbs within 2 inches of the screen.

Most screen tops have this same issue, as we use the same material as most manufacturers. However, we are working on a new material that can withstand well over 1000 degrees.
