"The Vivarium itself is as vital to the correct provision of an animal as is the provision of the pertinent heating and lighting systems. These are not just boxes in which an animal is living, but rather they are a core part of the technology needed to ensure high levels of health and well being. Therefore, choosing the right type and size of vivarium, then installing the correct decoration or naturalistic habitat alongside the correct electronics is as of vital importance to overall health and well being as every other part of the system."
John Courteney-Smith MRSB, Head of Science and Innovation at Arcadia Reptile

Current Wait Times On Our Enclosures (Updated June 2nd)
Custom Reptile Enclosures - Sold Out At This Time
Examples: Our Large Custom Reptile Enclosures
Here are just a couple of examples of the large enclosures that we produce. Our custom enclosure are made from our super thick, USA made aluminum frames with PVC or HDPE panels that will maintain and withstand high humidity when necessary. This design is substantially stronger than all PVC enclosures, which is why we can build such large enclosures that are also safe and secure.
Examples: Our Unique Customization's
With our Essential series of enclosures, you can easily customize them by framing and then adding decorative wood to the outside.
Examples: Decorating Our Custom Enclosures
Examples: Building a Reptile Zoo
We also have experience in building high profile, private reptile Zoos like the new Snake Discovery Reptile Zoo in St Paul, Minnesota.
Video 1 - Selecting the Décor
We travel down to Universal Rocks in Texas to select and purchase the décor and backgrounds for the reptile zoo.
Video 2 - Building the enclosures
After designing the enclosures for each reptile display, the enclosures are then framed and lined with plywood. Each enclosure then has a waterproof pan added to the bottom to help prevent future water damage.
Video 3 - Installing the Décor (part 1)
Now we add the background sheets and begin to foam in the gaps before trimming off the excess foam and touching up the seams to blend them in with the backgrounds.
Video 4 - Installing the Décor (part 2)
Here we finish installing the backgrounds and select the décor for each exhibit and well as begin to permanently position some of the décor in the exhibits.
We worked closely on the enclosure sizes and designs for quite some time to make them as large as possible and for the décor selection, species specific to try and mimic the reptiles natural habitat. At 15 minutes in, Emily explains our approach to how to display the reptiles while still giving them some places to hide, which we are very excited to see implemented in this reptile Zoo.
They have to look great on the outside too and in this video we build the cave entrance and completely wrap the outside of the enclosures with artificial rock sheets as well as begin decorating the island (middle) exhibits.
In this video update, the island displays are nearing completion as we move towards the finishing touches of this epic reptile Zoo build.
We had lots of fun doing this video and now as the enclosures are being finished off, Stuart from Universal Rocks shows how to make moss and running water effects as well as vine and plant placement.
Video 8 - Setting up the Life Support Systems for each Habitat
Coming soon - Each enclosure has the lighting and heating installed and for the higher humidity species, an automatic misting system is hooked up as well.
Video 9 - Adding the Reptiles to their New Enclosures
Coming soon - Once the reptiles and introduced to their new enclosures, we then recap the build and share the pricing for some of the Zoo displays.
