Hiya, I was just wondering about this cage - a friend recommended it to me:
is it good and how many will it house?
Hi Lulitta. To be honest, that cage/tank has 1cm bar spacing and the deep base is more suited to burrowing rodents. If your looking for a cage for more than a few mice, you could consider this one, the Varazzi:
It has narrower bars and is a good size and also allows for hammocks and levels. If you do a google search, the cage should come up, but they also do a smaller version. The image I have posted is the larger one. x
Hi and welcome to the forum.
I have two of those extra large gerbilariums and I've found them to be good for mice although as Racingmouse mentioned, it does have 1cm bar spacing and speaking from experience, small or baby mice can escape. The only other disadvantage of the cage is that the door opens upwards and can fall closed and hurt a mouse very easily (if your mice are like mine and come to greet you when you open the door).
I've kept a family of five female mice in one of those cages but I think realistically, four is a better number.
