Help and advice on shopping for: Reptile Housing
Find a home for your unique pet
There is no ‘one-size-fits-all’ when it comes to housing reptiles, amphibians and invertebrates. While a terrarium or vivarium can accommodate a lot of species we recognise that there are a few that require an enclosure as unique as they are. Our reptile housing range is made up of enclosures from leading reptile brands including Exo Terra, Lucky Reptile and VivExotic to help you find the perfect home for your pet.
What is reptile housing?
Our reptile housing category is made up of a diverse range of enclosures used to keep pets that are unlikely to be comfortable in a terrarium or a vivarium. This might be because the pet needs more space to move around, a constant airflow or a smaller enclosure. Each of these enclosures has been built to suit the needs of a few select species or even just one species.
Why should I buy reptile housing?
It’s incredibly important that you get the right sort of enclosure for your pet as it will help them to feel comfortable. In the wrong type of enclosure, your pet is more likely to become stressed, diseased and develop health conditions. Each of these enclosures is designed the same way as a terrarium or a vivarium to fit seamlessly into your home.
What are the main types of reptile housing?
The reptile housing range can be divided into five categories; tortoise tables, mesh terrariums, reptile terrainiums, reptile boxes and vivarium and terrarium locks. Tortoise tables are large enclosures big enough for a tortoise to roam around. Mesh terrariums are terrariums with sides made of a mesh weave to create a constant airflow. Reptile terrainiums are small enclosures with glass sides and roofing, suitable for tiny reptiles and invertebrates, or the transport and short-term display of larger pets. Reptile boxes are carrying and transport enclosures for reptiles and amphibians or permanent housing solutions for some invertebrates. Vivarium and terrarium locks are simply locks for all types of enclosures to protect the animals from theft or, more likely, children.
What should I look for?
When buying reptile housing, it’s really about finding the perfect enclosure for your pet. Unlike terrariums or vivariums, you are less likely to find a range of different colours or styles and more likely to find something neutral that will fit into most rooms. Prioritise the needs of your pet and you’re sure to find the perfect enclosure.
