Smile Marchioro Goran 82 rat cage, great for syrians

Ordered this from drsfostersmith.com for $99.99 on sale. Got it two days ago. It's a great cage, ivory base and green wire top. Bar spacing is 1/2" so only suitable for syrians? It comes with a large rectangular shelf, a large food dish (too large for a hamster), large water bottle (also too large) and a huge tube that can be hung from the top of the cage. The tube has some ventilation slits but I'm going to lay some felt in it to cover them up and hang it from the top with some short bungee ties. Really like the green wire top (odd because I'm not much a a green person). The wire top I received is in perfect condition, every bar is perfectly straight and no paint rubbed off. When you order from this site it gets drop shipped directly from marchioro usa. It's about 32.5" long x 20" deep x 14" tall. The door is part of the front and top of the cage, 15" long and 7" tall on the front and 7" deep from the top. Makes it very easy to access anything in the cage. It can fit a huge 11-12" wheel although if you have a 12" I recommend not having any bedding under that spot. I'm very happy and satisfied with the cage although I'm using the base from the kevin 82 cage cause it's blue my favorite color and I decorated the outside with stickers! I highly recommend this cage for syrian owners in the US. Best buy for size and bar spacing. The kevin 82 comes with a bunch of useless stuff, tiny food bowl, small wheel, a house that is so small and cheap I threw it away.

Glad to see that your search has ended and you have found a happy home for Panda. I know you did not like the Kevin 82 very much. I've researched both of these cages in the past, but I don't own either of them. If I recall, they are very similar in size. Since you've experienced both, I was wondering what makes you like the Goran better than the Kevin?

OH...would love to see pics of Panda's new set up!

Default Re: Marchioro Goran 82 rat cage, great for syrians

well originally i was going to get the goran 82 cage. but i had received amazon gift cards for my b-day which made the kevin a bit less, i chose the kevin because it already came with tubes to connect to the shelves. However the tubes do not fit up on the holes, so i never used them and i just used 1 shelf and put pandas puzzle playground below it so he could get up on it to get up to the shelf. the kevin 82 pretty much comes with a bunch of useless stuff. wheel is too small, the house was a complete joke (i threw it away), a mouse could barely fit through it. The tubes not working as they should with the shelves did not make me happy. i had to cover up the hole on the shelf with his bed, the water bottle has the clip to attach it to the cage on the wrong side. pretty much i would've been happy if the kevin was just the cage and 1 shelf for a lot less money. Also panda has a custom wheel and the bottom bolt is pretty much thicker then the bar spacing. so it's a real pain for me to take it off his cage for spot cleaning and put it back on. this caused a lot of paint to rub off the bars. i'm an extremely picky person with everything and just some bars being bent and paint rubbed off was enough for me to want a new cage. The goran comes with the large shelf, the water bottle can be used it's just really big, the food bowl is too big but can be used for another small animal like guinea pig and rats, i actually like that the tube is so huge. like i said i'm going to lay fleece on the bottom and have it hanging low and he will love it. the bar spacing on the goran is perfect for the bolt on his wheel and for his water bottle. Green is not a color i'm fond of however the metal wire top is very nice and the bars are also thicker then on the kevin 82. Also the goran is less money. now i'm convinced the two kevin 82 cages i got both damaged were used cages sold as new by that business. because they just came in a plain brown box, everything was just thrown into the base moving around, no packing material at all, shelves were a little dirty, first base had a chunk taken out of the corner and the wire top the bars were bent, the first one the door was messed up. second cage the base was fine but wire top the whole back the bars were bent and bowed outward so bad, my dad bent them back straight. that place i got them from is a pet store as well and other people had the same issue. so getting the goran from the site i put a link to you know it's coming from the manufacturer. was in a box in a second marchioro box, everything was packaged in plastic, wire top absolutely flawless and great quality. No issues with the base being bent inward or damaged or dirty. I'm very happy. I will post a pic of panda's new cage in the cage thread!

p.s. they are basically the same cage, same size just different colors, different bar spacing and different accessories they come with.
