They are 12" high x 24" deep x 8' long-with dividers available to make them 4' longs. they are XPVC...so no sealing necessary.

...they looked pretty good all done ...I learned alot doing them. "A love/hate " thing----Even on a DIY level they are quite an investment I would think. Each level isn't cheap to build at less than retail prices.

2 x 4'x8' xpvc(wht-blk is more) =$160
2 x 1'x4' 1/4" glass (smoothed & 3/16" holes drilled) =$ 55
8 lineal ft 1/4" sliding track =$ 30
2 knobs & Barrel bolt latch =$ 10
Fasteners 1 1/4", 2 1/2" =$ 20
4 x 2" vents =$ 8
1"x2"x8' hardwood (for bracing the top-sags without) =$ 10
*materials and supplies per level Total =$293.per level


So, about 300 per unit to actually build yourself.

Interesting, a lot of it actually (the white being cheaper for one)

With a divider you're looking at 4 x 4' cages @ 150/a piece.

They look really good, and solid. How much do they weigh ?

Once I move and can actually get an Asian Water Monitor I'll be building a cage and will probably look at building a cage that can be taken apart/put together fairly easy. May ask for ideas  Suspect 

I asked about sealing just because I didn't see any in the intial pictures, and I know Retics can piss through xpvc, this probably won't be an issue for smaller snakes/burms ever but if there is a way for retic piss to leak, it leaks.
