    XL Cage Dimensions

    • Interior: 27" x 71" = about 13 Square Feet of cage space.
    • Exterior: 30" x 76" when assembled with grids (not included in this item) you will need a table space of about 2.5 feet by 6.5 feet to accommodate this cage.

    Coro Height Preference

    This refers to the HEIGHT of the COROPLAST on ONE long-side of the cage -- for the back wall.

    • 6" (inches) is standard. 6" sides all the way

      around maximizes ventilation and visibility, and it is generally high

      enough to keep in bedding for most guinea pigs. Also, a water bottle

      spout resting on the top of the 6" Coroplast is a good height for guinea

      pigs to drink from.

    • 12" (inches) is good if the long side of your cage

      is going up against a wall. This helps prevent hay (and in some cases

      bedding) from being kicked up and getting stuck against the wall. You

      can always cut it down later if you decide it doesn't work for you. The

      12" option is just to help you keep your floor and wall cleaner in some

      circumstances.


    NOTE: We do NOT offer 12" walls all the way around because we do NOT

    recommend it. It cuts off too much air circulation for the guinea pigs.

    In addition, even if you wanted it regardless of our advice, coroplast

    is only 48 inches wide and that would require 51 inches.

    Coroplast Base Includes

    • 4mm Coroplast bottom in your choice of 15 colors!

      27" x 71" x 6" sides for 2x5 Grid cage
      The base is cut and scored so you only have to secure the flaps.

      (Coroplast base is scored and folded for shipping, which makes an

      indented "crush" line, but it does not affect the function of the cage.

      It's barely noticeable when fully assembled.)

    • (16) Snap-in Plastic Rivets to fasten flaps.

    NEW! Rivets on the Flaps!

    • We've updated our cage design to make it even easier and more secure than ever! All of our Coroplast bases now come with nice, clean holes -- professionally punched in the appropriate locations. We include our new, easy-snap-in plastic rivets for securing the base. 
    • The rivets, while very secure when in place, can also be popped back open with a little separation pressure should you need to dissemble your cage and are generally reuseable.

    How many Guinea Pigs will fit in a 2x5?

    • Up to 3 adult guinea pigs comfortably. It varies a bit depending upon your group. This is actually the recommended size for 2 males. Males typically need a bit more room than females. They need space to get away from each other when they want to.
    • It would be possible to house a larger, well-bonded group of 4, perhaps as many as 5, but that would really be pushing it.
    • ONE

      guinea pig needs at least a 2x3 grid-sized cage. This cage could temporarily be divided to accommodate splitting a bickering pair or separating a male and female.

      You just need a Cage Divider or our "Wall of Silence" down the middle of a 2x5 to instantly create two 2x2.5 grid cages. But, as we really recommend a 2x3 for even one guinea pig, using this cage to separate them should be a temporary situation.

    HUGE!

    Dang this cage is big. We bought it last year and love the space it gives our piggy. On busy days I don't feel bad for not letting him outside because I know the space is ample :)

    Easy to clean, gorgeous colours!

    This came so securely packaged which I loved! And it is very sturdy material and VERY easy to clean! I don't sheet my entire cages with fleece because of how they are set up (hard to describe). But I use towels for my piggies' comfort. Some hay and washroom gets a bit on the coroplast because of this but the point is that it cleans off SO easily! And of course-- the colour selection is awesome and gorgeous. I've put multiple cages together and had fun mixing and matching! ;)

    Saw your informative site, got inspired to go to home depot, found the caging but no colorplast so i decided to order it from you. WOW this thing is huge! Miss Sweetheart really loves her new cage she runs around like crazy now! I put it together in about 15 minutes, it was very easy, she loves it and so do we! Thank you very much for your infomative site and quality products.
