Exo Terra 36x18x12 Review

Exo Terra 36x18x12The Exo Terra Natural Terrarium Advanced Reptile Habitat is ideal for ground-dwelling reptiles and amphibians. Desert reptile species will really benefit from the vertically low design, as the ultraviolet and heat bulbs are located closer to the animal compared to higher models. This habitat is specially designed for desert setups, since most desert species are ground dwellers and do not move vertically.
