INTRODUCTORY PRICE - LIMITED TIME OFFER! Wow - one of the largest, nicest narrow bar cages we have seen in a very long time! Great for rats, syrian hamsters, chinchillas and other similar sized small pets.
The Coco Cage by Little Friends has a grey plastic base tray, and silver metal bars (which are COATED silver with silver paint and will not rust). These bars are a much thicker gauge wire than other comparible cages on the market (we handle cages all day and these are noticeably thicker than the Savic Freddy cages for example).
This cage comes with the two wooden platforms and two wooden ladders as shown.
Width across front: 100cm (at widest part of base lip)
Depth (front to back): 54cm
Height (top to bottom): 70cm.
There are two access doors, a large front drop down access door measuring 24.5 x 26cm. There is a huge door on top measuring 60 x 34cm - the access is absolutely superb on this cage.
It does need some minor assembly, it comes flatpacked and you will need to fold the wire panels out and fasten the little hooks round the side panels (two second easy job).
The bar spacing is 1.2cm, although this is does increase to around 1.8cm at the corner joins and at the top (but can be adjusted relatively easily). If using for syrians we would recommend you bend this back ever so slightly to make the gap slightly smaller.
Bars are silver (coated, will not tarnish or rust) and base is the beige platinum colour shown. Neutral colours and a very attractive cage!
Tip: when assembling this cage to make it more sturdy we recommend crimping the side U shaped hooks at each corner. This makes it rock solid (we have tested this with 15kgs of weight on top of the canopy without it being clipped to anything and it was as sturdy as a table!). If you plan to flatpack this cage regularly then we would recommend leaving as it is - it is still an exceptionally sturdy cage once built and clipped to the base.
Ok, so when this first arrives it feels a bit cheap and flimsy, but put it together correctly and you have a sturdy, secure ache that even my chinchilla can't get out of! I recommend covering all plastic with non-pill fleece if using for a chinchilla. Basically that means getting a couple of fleece blankets and having one in, one in the wash! Super easy and a single size blanket will fit this cage beautifully with a little spare.
I would Definitely recommend this cage, and will be shopping here again when I go in search of a larger cage for my twin boys to live in.
Delivery was easy and very quick and the packaging was very suitable, although I was glad I had so,embody to lift it for me! May need some pliers to loop bars together more securely, but it isn't essential. T on 2nd Oct 2015
Nice big cage. It's a bit tricky to get together properly, and had to use some wire on the corners to stop if springing apart, but once done is fine.
Nice big doors at front and top give easy access, and close-spaced bars will stop even young rats escaping (except the corners unless you tighten them up). Included platforms are fiddly to fit, but once in are very secure. Unknown on 17th Jun 2015
