*This enclosure is 12" shorter than our 4'x2'x2' 120 gallon enclosure that has an optional substrate barrier that sticks in with tape instead of being built in.*

The Reptile Habitats 48x24x12 (60 Gallon) Ball Python Enclosure is a great choice for nervous young ball pythons that need to feel a little bit more enclosed in their housing.

  • Easy to assemble in less than 30 minutes.
  • Durable PVC panels.
  • Isn’t damaged by high humidity.
  • Lightweight and easy to move.
  • Weighs only 25 pounds!
  • Heavy-duty screen

Buying a reptile terrarium is an important investment in 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!

Reptiles 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.

Our 1" Stacker/Spacer is now available to stack multiple enclosures (up to 3 high). If you intend on stacking your enclosures and adding more than 25lbs to the enclosure above, you will also need support bars.

Reptile Habitats 60 Gallon Enclosures can also stack on top of Reptile Habitats 120 Gallon Enclosures!

ASSEMBLY NOTES

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

The Reptile Habitats 60 48x24x12 (60 Gallon) Ball Python 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 ball python 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 Reptile Habitats enclosure, make sure you support the bottom when moving it.

If you are using this terrarium for a ball python or other snake, we suggest using glass doors instead of acrylic for extra security. These can be sourced from a local glass shop. We will soon offer glass doors as an upgrade!

To increase humidity in your ball python tank, 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 do not recommend interfering with your enclosure's built-in ventilation system. Instead, it's best to increase the frequency of misting and/or install a reptile fogger.
