The baby Cube Clear Mesh Caterpillar Cage w/ Drawbridge Door 15"x15"x15" works great and doesn't take up much room. I will admit though my homemade caterpillar cage (Rubbermaid container with a window screen on top) did work very well, it just took up a lot more room. The first cat to morph attached itself to the zipper fabric so I had to be extra careful each time I opened and closed the cage. :) I also bought the poo-poo platter. It's easy to clean.
Pop-up design makes it easy to store when not in use. Full net design is great for the kids (and adults!) to watch the lifecycle. I recommend the Poo Poo Platter to keep cleanup easy.
I love these little cubes, and I have purchased many over the past few years.s This time I purchased 2 as a gift for a friend. Her young daughter will give one of them to a friend so the lil gals can raise monarchs together. These raising suppllies make it easy for young people to be involved and to have a great degree of independence as they raise and observe butterflies.
I purchased the large baby cuve, 2 pegboards, some poo trays and couldn't be happier. ...err the caterpillars couldn't be happier. the pegboard and tubes keeps the cats hanging on leaves in the natural way. the cages are well made. The poo trays help keep the cats from walking through the frass - I lift the cats out on their leaves or plants and remove & shake out the frass (or vacuum) and return the happy cats to the cages ....
I received the cage and poo tray quickly but there were a few small holes in the cage. I emailed customer service and before I received a reply I received a shipping email for the replacement. An hour later I had an email from the company saying a new one was shipped out. It said I should keep the old one and explained how to patch the holes. New one arrived a few days later with no holes. Great product and I love the poo tray. I currently have one chrysalis and a new caterpillar already attached to the top. Wonderful customer service. Will definitely buy from them again.
