A good terrarium should be composed of more than just four glass walls. It should not be a sterile environment. At the most basic, a decent terrarium would have flooring that is made of moss, wood or specially treated rocks and sand. It would have a certain level of vegetation, so that there is some greenery and some sort of cork backing to ensure humidity.
At the most basic, that is what it should look like for your pet reptiles to feel at home. Optimally there should also be elements that make this environment really conducive for your pet reptile's well being. At best it should have vegetation which is similar to what they find in the wild or in their home climates. While this is not always possible because of the availability of materials, this definitely adds a touch of home to the terrarium.
