One of the key pieces of equipment that you need for a great terrarium is the top screen/cover.
Security - Whether youre keeping snakes, lizards or other reptiles, security is very important for your pets safety as well as for your home safety. While having a nice terrarium box with contoured glass walls is great, its not as important as the screen. The only thing thats probably more important than the screen is the heating system in your terrarium because reptiles
are cold-blooded and they need external heat for biological processes.
Not all screens are the same. You must make sure that the screen you pick is very sturdy so that reptile claws and teeth that would try to scratch and chew on it wont compromise it. It must be tough enough to withstand that action. It must also be rust resistant because a properly set-up terrarium is a very humid and hot environment which is conducive to rusting if the screen is not properly constructed. Make sure that the meshing can withstand a high level of humidity and moisture. The configuration must also allow for proper level of ventilation to your pets. Some screens are set up in such a way that the air doesnt move around efficiently in the terrarium. The next consideration is sort of an access system where its easy to open a part of the screen so you can access your pets. Some screen designs are awkwardly configured in a way that you have to slide the top screen which poses safety risks for both yourself and your pets. The way access is engineered is an important factor.
