I’m using this small cage for hatchlings until they are large enough to move to the bigger cage. I can keep track of them better in the tiny cage. I put small milkweed cuttings in floral tubes laying on their side so I don’t have to worry about a caterpillar falling off and not finding the milkweed. The cage is easy to sanitize because of the small size. I’m very pleased with this purchase.
Very good product except the door could be bigger. I have large hands and it was kind of hard to get a rambunctious female Monarch out for her fly away.
Seriously, this cage is so dang cute! I was able to isolate a cat that seemed to be having trouble transitioning between instars. I definitely see some good uses of this cage in the future. Nice to have a tiny option for isolation.
I use this for chrysalis that have fallen down or been detached for some reason. Butterflies can hatch from a flat chrysalis, but I do put lots of soft netting under them so they don't deform while in the chrysalis. They will climb up the netting and can be relocated for further drying of their wings.
I’m so glad I added this to my supplies! I have used it for observation of caterpillars which may not be healthy. I also used it to rehang some chrysalides which were in a bad location outside. It has been very useful!
