    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


    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.

    Our Cagetopia-brand Grids have stayed the same over the years as we have many hundreds of thousands of C&C cage owners (DIY and customers) that depend on the original sizes and the best quality grids and connectors.

    Supplying your OWN GRIDS?

    Or mixing in different grid sources or vendors? No 14" grids are the same anymore. Please review:

    • Many 14" grids are NO LONGER COMPATIBLE
    • Grid Vendors are now ALL DIFFERENT from each other
      Especially on Amazon, but also Bed, Bath & Beyond, Target, etc.
      • DIFFERENT CONNECTORS: gap spacing (space between grids) can be different (standard = 3/8") and that matters.
      • Grid Size: 14" exactly is required -- NOT 12" or anything else
      • Grid Wire Gauge (thickness): Grid vendors adapt their connectors to their wire gauge, which is typically thinner than ours (4mm = 3 pennies), so they won't work well together, if at all -- too tight or too loose.
      • Inner Grid-hole Size (safety-related):
        NO INNER HOLES BIGGER than 1.5" or you risk your guinea pig's head getting stuck and strangling. In a 14" grid, there should be 9 holes by 9 holes -- never less.
    • Using only Zip Ties (no connectors) is NOT RECOMMENDED.
      Some people complain about using the connectors. They are using NON-Cagetopia connectors. Ours work great and are easy to snap in, while being strong and stable.
      • Zip ties alone ARE NOT STRONGER as compared to using Connectors WITH zip ties (not opinion, engineering fact).
      • Many Cagetopia products will NOT be compatible for fit without using the connectors.
      • The fit of the coro inside the grids will be different.

    Trying to save a few dollars now on purchasing grids separately could be a frustrating, if not an expensive, decision later.

    All these things MATTER on CAGE BUILDING.

    If you buy one vendor's grids today and try to mix in a different vendor's grids from Amazon tomorrow, odds are high they may not be compatible with each other or our Cagetopia Grids.

    Absolutely amazing!

    I recently purchased this for my piggies to upgrade them from their smaller cage tray. I ordered the old tray from another company that I really like, but the new one you sent me is absolutely amazing! It's not only cheaper than the old company I bought from, they actually sent little snap in rivets to keep the cage together. This is perfect because my piggies like to chew on anything they can, and with the old tray, any tape or velcrow I used to keep it together would wear down and have to be replaced.

    With the rivets, I don't have to check all the time to make sure they didn't chew through them. I bought it over a month ago and the rivets have not shifted at all. It's still as secure as when I first put it together!

    The tray is very easy to clean! I use fleece bedding and shredded bedding interchangeably and regardless which I use it's so easy to clean! It gives my babies enough room to run around in, much more than my old small tray, so that if I don't have time to let them out, at least they still have leg room to stay mobile.

    I will totally buy more from this company when I'm ready to enhance the cages from mere cages to Piggy Mansions!

    Its Great!!!

    <p>i ordered this for my three girls. they love it ! im gonna order for my two males tomorrow. i love this website. i wish the shipping was so much, but its still good!</p>



    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! ;)

    Thank you very much

    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.
