Exo Terra Habitat Kit Desert - the perfect desert terrarium in the inexpensive starter set
Especially the supposedly high prices for terrariums and terrarium accessories are the reasons why newcomers to the fascinating hobby of terraristics are often deterred in the beginning. That doesn't have to be at all! A good example of how affordable the entry into the world of terrariums can be is the Exo Terra Habitat Kit Desert, a starter kit that gives you a fully equipped desert terrarium. With this great terrarium you can start immediately: The assembly is child's play and the accessories leave nothing to be desired.
What's all this about now? Let's start with the terrarium itself! You will receive a fully-fledged Exo Terra glass terrarium developed by European herpetologists. Means: It couldn't be more practical! The Exo Terra glass terrarium has two front doors that open to the front, making working in the terrarium and feeding reptiles particularly easy. The terrarium doors are escape-proof due to a special lock. Ingenious: The high doors of the terrarium allow you to sprinkle the ground particularly high, without anything going wrong! The lid of this terrarium is made of very fine-meshed metal wire. This makes the escape of the inhabitants impossible on the one hand, but on the other hand allows vital UV-B radiation and heat to penetrate deep into the terrarium! This allows reptiles to develop healthily in the Exo Terra Habitat Kit Desert. The Exo Terra stone motif back wall is the optical highlight of this beautiful terrarium set! Completely natural looking and due to the great plastic structure a paradise for climbing friendly terrarium animals. Exo Terra has also made the right choice for the substrate (litter) for this terrarium: Exo Terra Desert Sand Red is a natural desert sand that reptiles from dry regions love. Easy to clean, dust-free and natural. So that you always have an eye on the humidity and temperature in your terrarium: The Exo Terra Habitat Kit Desert comes with a reliable Exo Terra hygrometer and an Exo Terra thermometer. So you always provide optimal conditions inside the terrarium.
Exo Terra hasn't saved on decoration - here everything simply fits together in the terrarium: The Exo Terra rock formation Rock Outcrops looks completely real and gives the terrarium that certain something. This terrarium rock is perfect for reptiles! The easily accessible caves allow reptiles to hide when they "smell danger", and at the same time the rock formation in the terrarium serves for climbing and as an elevated sun place. Perfectly matching: The Exo Terra Barrel Cactus, which looks absolutely real and underlines the desert character of the terrarium even more - in the larger version of the Exo Terra Habitat Kit Desert you get the pretty Exo Terra Saguaro Cactus as an encore! Also included: The Exo Terra Reptile Cave, a shapely and practical reptile cave, and the Exo Terra Waterdish - a water bowl for reptiles, which is optically perfectly matched to the interior of the terrarium! Included in the terrarium set is the Exo Terra Compact Top, which was specially developed for the Exo Terra glass terrarium. This lighting system for terrariums not only looks incredibly elegant - the highly polished reflector is 100% efficient and bundles the light in an optimal way! The Exo Terra Compact Top is designed to operate Exo Terra Repti Glo compact lamps. These are not included in the delivery of the terrarium set. Select these terrarium lamps as required and order them right away.
How do I find the right Exo Terra Repti Glo compact lamp for my terrarium? Nothing easier than that! It always depends on which terrarium animals you want to keep in your new terrarium. You will then decide on the right type of lamp. The following versions of the Exo Terra Repti Glo compact lamp are available:
