Reptile Habitat Backgrounds

Reptiles are creatures of instinct, so it’s crucial for reptile owners to provide their pets with habitats that resemble their natural environment as much as possible. Filling your pet's terrarium with authentic, natural accessories and decorations is essential to promoting its natural behaviors and activities, while stimulating your pet’s mind and preventing boredom, fear, and stress, which could lead to destructive behavior. Reptile habitat accessories including backgrounds are available at affordable prices at Zen Pet Supplies’ online store. If you’re looking for a particular type of accessory or background and cannot find it today, please check back soon as we update our inventory on a regular basis. Or, you can contact us via the Zen Pet Supplies’ website, and we’ll do whatever we can to find the item you need.
We carry a number of Natural Forest Cork panels for terrarium/vivarium backgrounds that are specially designed for high-humidity environments, and they are highly resistant to mold and mildew. There are several panels in each pack, and you can cut them to fit your terrarium. Backgrounds make a tank look much more aesthetically pleasing to the eye by mimicking natural reptile habitats, and they also create protection for the reptile so it’s not exposed from the glass on all sides of the terrarium.

Reptiles love somewhere to bask and a background with some type of ledge is a great place for your snake or bearded dragon to relax and catch some of those UV rays they love so much. Reptile habitat backgrounds and other accessories in your reptile’s terrarium allow them to gain access to various parts of the terrarium (where there’s heat and humidity) that they need to live a long, healthy life. As their caretaker, it’s your responsibility to create a habitat that most closely resembles your reptile’s natural one, and you can do this by purchasing reptile accessories and backgrounds from the Zen Pet Supplies online store. You can choose plain backgrounds or ones that actually closely resemble the rain forest environment that your pet reptile hails from originally. Be sure to do some research on your particular species of pet before adding accessories to the terrarium because all reptile and amphibians require different types of habitats. There is no “one size fits all” mentality in caring for these types of pets.
