ExoTerra is usually the only one I see. Also cork bark backgrounds can be found by either ExoTerra or Zoomed, I'm thinking ExoTerra because they focus a lot on cages and décor but zoomed usually focuses on medicines for herps.

If you are okay with designing your own to get it just how you want.

There is a spray foam called Great Stuff that works well. You can approximately form it. Measure the cage and make a slide to fit into the back of the cage. This way you can form the background on the slide. Add an fixtures such as pots for plants before you add the Great Stuff. I would practice on some card board first. Great Stuff is really cheap and available at most home improvement stores. Downside is this only works well if you want desert/mountain type background.

If you are looking more forest or jungle type backgrounds then I would look at maybe attaching terrarium moss to a slide and then adding branches and vines that pet stores and online sites like ExoTerra have. A slide helps here for easy cleaning and if you need to replace the moss for any reason. Two slides is nice so you can alternate slides when one needs cleaning.
