My cage is 5 ft. tall, 3 ft. wide, and 2.5 ft. deep... If I could of course I would make it as big as possible! LOL

I keep buying bigger cages. LOL! The first one my two babies had was 30"x18"x36". Now they're in a 30"x18"x55". And I just ordered an even bigger one a couple days ago. Now they'll have a 30"x30"x72" reptarium. I don't think I'll ever be able to go bigger than that. LOL

for a pair or trio, I like the 30x18x55 tall because it gives them lots of room but the cage will still fit in the bath tub for cleaning. The larger the cage, the harder to move it around to clean.
Judge not until you have walked in their shoes and lived their lives. What you see online is only part of the story.

I agree...With my large cage, I have to take a scrub brush and vinegar/water and set aside an entire hour just to clean the actual cage... Then another 15 min. to clean the toys and such. I alternate days on what I clean so they don't mark everything and everything is just stinkier than when I started. LOL

I have two 3'x2'x6' cages, my husband has one 4'x2'x6' cage and four 3'x2'x5' cages, and the rest of the cages are 24"x18"x36" cages. We would not go smaller than our 3' cages. We like the fact that the cages are no bigger than 2' deep so we can get them through the doors!


#59914 - 09/27/05 04:54 PM Re: how big should the cage be?????? [Re: ]

well lets see.. our cage is 30*30*17*17*angled wall *5' high plus the 4" legs it stands on, and the boys will be the same when finished, BUT later on the 2 will be combined to make one MONSTER cage that will be 6' wide, 5' tall and 30" deep at the deep sections, and 17 at the narrow part! but we hope to eventually house a colony in it and I clean it where it stands with a steam cleaner...
