A Flexible Cage DividerI coined the term "Wall of Silence" for separating guinea pigs in a divided cage. I used this often in my rescue. I always had my "Wall of Silence" standing nearby for either emergency or semi-permanent use.
It is sometimes not enough to just use a couple of extra grids to separate guinea pigs. You may need to separate males from females. If so, the males will bite on the bars pretty incessantly in their desire to get to the females.
The Wall of Silence blocks their visual stimulation as well as some of the female's scent. We don't make the wall too high to allow for air flow. It's best if you don't have to use the Coroplast, but sometimes, you do!
You can remove the Coroplast as needed and just use the grids. lt depends on your situation.
In addition, you do not need to hook into the connectors if you need to place the divider mid-grid. You just get more creative with cable ties.
DO NOT USE this cage divider in less than a JUMBO cage on a PERMANENT basis. The absolute minimum cage size for one or more guinea pigs is a 2x3 grid-sized cage. PLEASE provide your piggies the room they need!
