Default Cage Sizes Comparison (Updated Jan 2014)

*** Updated January 2014 ***

I've done a bit of a re-vamp of the cage sizes comparison, just limiting it to the main 20 cages available at the moment.

The data I've collected is: name, dimensions, type (wired/tank/part wired), main materials, bar spacing (if available), if any shelves are included, and a rough price range at the time.

I've calculated a crude floor space in square centimetres (just by multiplying the outside measurements of the width and depth, allowing for a 1cm difference), but this does not include any shelf space or any other space available (i.e tubes).

This is not a definitive list of cages, as there may be some I've missed off, or some information may differ slightly between websites (ive gathered info from a few different websites).

The graph below shows the cages in order, by my calculated (approximate) floor space, and thought this might be interesting to other members.







Hope these are useful

That is FANTASTICO! I was trying to decide what to get for a dwarfy and these really help!

It'd be good if you could asterix the ones that usually come with a shelf too, as then you know there's even more space!

Thanks very much for this leedsgurl, what a star you are!

Glad to be of help I've now updated the graph to indicate those which usually come with a shelf or shelves

Wow that's useful =) I can't believe how much extra space Olive has now....when it's there in the numbers you can really appreciate the difference.

Just thinking it might be worth making this into a sticky somewhere with Starlight Serenitys picture version.....I just know last time I was looking for it I really struggled and it's very useful.

Just though I'd add, does it mean the imac criceti 16, rather than the ferplast criceti 16?
