    XL Cage Dimensions

    • Interior: 27" x 71" = about 13 Square Feet of cage space.
    • Exterior: 30" x 76" when assembled = 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.

    Cage Kit Includes

    • (14) 14" Grids in black or white (safe grids with 1 3/8" openings)
    • (28) Connectors in black or white
    • 4mm Coroplast bottom in your choice of 15 colors!
      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.)
    • Cable ties that match the grid color. (Using cable ties to reinforce the grid connections helps make the cage extra tight and super secure.)
    • Easy-to-follow, color assembly instructions with photos
    • Two-page Guinea Pig Care Sheet

    Please NOTE about the Cage Bottom

    The cage does not have grids on the bottom. They are unnecessary. The cage is designed to sit nicely on a flat surface -- a table top, a desk, the floor (if it's draft-free), etc.

    However, if you desire, you can make a cage stand out of grids. Please see our matching XL Cage Stand if you are interested in a cage stand.


    We include detailed instructions with every kit, but if you have questions, we are always more than happy to help you out! Just contact us--pop us a note with your phone number and we will call you back as soon as possible with in-person assistance!


    Please do not put the Coroplast directly on a hardwood floor. Moisture from the air and/or wood can get trapped and has nowhere to go and hence can cause sweating -- which has NOTHING to do with the quality or character of the cage. Nor is the cage leaking. All you have to do is put something absorbent down first like a towel or carpet and set the cage bottom on that instead of directly on wood.

    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.

    I KNOW this cage will fit in my space!

    I've read the cage dimensions and have measured my space. GRIDS are 14", NOT a 12" FOOT! For example: 2x4 Grids needs 2.5 x 5 FEET of space.

    <p>I ordered the 2x5 with pink coroplast. It shipped within 24 hours, and delivered to my door 24 hours after it shipped! Absolutely amazing. Took me about an hour to put together, no hassle. My guinea pigs absolutely love the space. It doesn’t come with a top, so if you have other animals in the house please be careful. The room where my guinea pigs are has a lock on the door so I’m confident in having an open top cage.</p>

    Wonderful cage!

    This cage is perfect for my two girlies - they absolutely love all the room for popcorns and zoomies. SO easy to put together with the instructions, and arrived so quickly after placing my order! I would definitely order again - already thinking about getting the kitchen. As someone who would definitely mess up the coroplast if I attempted to do it myself, I so appreciate the opportunity to purchase it - and for cheaper than many pet store cages that are still WAY too small. Definitely get this cage or the 2X6 you WON'T regret it and your piggies will thank you!


    very very pleased!!!

    I received my shipment with in the 1-6 days. My first impression was that I thought it may be very hard to put together. It was very simple my 5 and 9 year old boys helped me put it all together. This case is huge!! I would not recommend ordering it with out the stand. chances are you will not be able to find a table for it unless you are handy and can build one. I ordered it with out the stand and it was bigger then I expected. So I have it on the floor. I placed my order today for a stand so I am excited to get that next!! As soon as I put my PIGGYS in the cage they both began to pop around and squeak. I have never seen them do this in a very long time. Not even when I put them in the play pen to play. I am a satisfied customer and will definitely recommend this cage.

    Perfect Pen for Pigs

    Finally something big and sturdy for my three little pigs. Shame on the pet stores for selling such small cages. Love the 2 x 5 grid. Even with the low Canadian dollar and high shipping charges, it was well worth it.


    Amazing Product and Super Fast Shipping!!

    I absolutely LOVE this cage/company! Their stuff is super easy to put together, HUGE (in a good way!) and just great quality in general! I'm so glad I got this for my piggies- they love their new home! I even got two expansion lofts for them! Best purchase for my pigs ever!

    Bambi, Flower and Thumper thank you all!
