Are they pretty much online only or are there any stockists?

Jungle Phase has Herpteks as display vivs but not seen any Rhinos in the flesh.

How can you heat them? Is it only heat mat? Never used a plastic viv, look and sound very appealing

I use heat matts in mine but i think if you ask he will but the fittings in for bulbs or whatever.
I keep boas,bloods and royals in mine and have noticed some real plus points.Because they keep the temps and humidity well the royal is shedding and feeding perfectly but the main plus is how easy they are to keep clean and hygenic.I also think that they look really smart!!!

I can imagine how the pro's out way the con's, sound very appealing.

Was always sceptical concerning using them though in-case they warped under certain temps.

I assume they are of a different build quality compared to a pennine (sp?)

Totally different mate,they are made from polypropylene which can be heated to about 350 degrees i think with no ill effects.I havent experienced any problems with mine and fully expect them to out live my snakes!!!

For the price difference it better had.

Are they too shallow in height to have lighting other than a UV tube?
I think a rhino viv would save you money in the long run as its quite likely that it wont need replacing!
With regards to the height you can have them made to different heights
