Features and design
Narrow Spaces Between Wire Strands
Seeing that this cage has been designed to house small sized animals such as rats and sugar gliders, the space between bars has been made narrow to ensure that juveniles do not squeeze their way out. The space between bars is just 0.5 inches.
Critter Nation for small animals has full cage doors. This means that the doors run from one corner of the cage to the other. These doors are secured together with a latch. Full cage doors ease maintenance as nothing will obstruct you while cleaning or fixing cage accessories.
Bars are Horizontal
To make it easy for pets, such as hedgehogs, rats, and chinchillas to climb from one level to the next, there are horizontal bars close to each other. These enable them to climb, as it is natural for them to want to climb. However, in the case of hedgehogs, one should fit with protective fitting so that they do not injure themselves when they fall.
Adjustable Full-Width Shelves
You can adjust the height of the shelves with respect to the size of your pet. Small pets can have high shelves while large animal pets will require the shelves to be a bit lower. These shelves come with plastic inserts which make them easy to clean and provides sturdy grounds for pets. Each of the shelves in this cage run from one end of the cage to the other ensuring that pets do not fall off between the shelf and the wall.
At the bottom of the cage, there is a storage area which is lockable. You can detach the storage area from the rest of the cage when cleaning. The stand on the cage is adjustable and raises the cage to any height the owner wants. For those who are using the double level Critter Nation cage, there are locking ramps that can be used to separate the bottom level from the upper level. This feature comes handy when you have two pets you wish to separate.
