Bearded dragons, snakes, geckos and tortoises all have different habitat requirements and this should be the first factor to consider before buying a vivarium.

The more space you can give your reptile, the better, but some reptiles will need a larger tank than others with plenty of space to move around or climb. Read our guide to choosing the right size vivarium for your reptile or browse vivariums by size.

When you’re buying a vivarium, you have a choice of two materials: wood and glass. Wooden vivariums tend to be the cheapest of the two and they’re much easier to insulate, while glass vivariums let you see much more of what’s going on inside the vivarium and they’ll keep the heat well in a warm house. Read our guide to choosing the right material or if you know what you want, browse vivariums by material.

Don’t forget that whichever vivarium you choose will become a piece of furniture in your home. And while the health and wellbeing of your reptile comes first and foremost, it’s also important to choose a colour and material that fits with the rest of your decor.
