Bad Cage Description

Tanks and tanks with toppers. They do not give adequate ventilation and are usually to small for adult rats.

Cages with larger than half inch bar spacing. The rats can and will get out.

Cages with all plastic shelves and bottoms with easy access to chew.

Cages to small are not good for rats. Here is a cage calculator to determine if your cage is to small.
