Desert Enclosure

dessertDesert Enclosure

Our desert enclosure is perfect for any reptile needing a warm dry climate, like the bearded dragon and certain species of snakes and tortoises.

They can be built with our rock background, and include a small pond area for a water source. The backgrounds we make for these terrariums are completely non-toxic. To build them we use foam, zoo quality non-toxic epoxy, and sand.

Our rock backgrounds are replicas of their natural setting, and come with ledges to crawl on and hide outs. For the enclosures that have a mural, we can include interior decorations like rocks and log hide outs.

The entire inside of this enclosure is epoxied, so cleaning is very simple. You can simply spray it out with a hose and let the water run out of a drain that is placed at the very bottom of the terrarium.

For the lighting, it all depends on the overall width of the enclosure. We use as little as one fixture, and as many as needed for a larger terrarium. The style of fixtures all depends on what the customer would like, but we normally recommend ceramic fixtures to withstand the high heat. If you are going to be planting real plants, we recommend using a high lumen grow bulb along with a fluorescent. All of our enclosures come with the light fixtures installed, but it is up to you whether you want us to take care of the bulbs, and you will have the final input on what bulbs are used.
