When housing tropical reptiles, amphibians and mountainous species Exo Terra glassÂ terrariumsÂ have a few advantages over their wooden vivariums. They are well suited to these animals as they diffuse heat at a greater rate than wooden enclosures and can be exposed toÂ higher humidity levels than wooden vivariums.
Here at the Northampton Reptile Centre we use them to house arboreal geckos (for example crested geckos), amphibians, invertebrates and some small terrapins.
These terrariums boast;
- Front window ventilation
- Dual doors for an escape-free access
- Waterproof bottom
- Raised bottom frame
- Stainless steel mesh cover
- Locks to prevent escape
- Easy-twist screen cover lock
- Closable inlets for wires and/or tubing
- Cut out in the back for wires and/or tubing
Whilst these terrariums may be suitable for desert species under certain conditions, in the UK we generally recommend wooden vivariums for hot species. Purely because Exo Terra glass terrariums are so efficient at expelling heat.
