I have been on a hunt for a new enclosure for about 8 months now and randomly stumbled upon Kages. I was worried that this site/company was some scam, considering there does not seem to be a lot of reviews or posts about it. I took a leap of faith after doing about two weeks of research on them. My email updates were going to my spam folder so I wasn’t aware of them and that Of course added to my worry about it being a scam. I ordered the tank on 10/03 and I received it 10/23. After unboxing it I noticed that everything was very well packaged and the box was handled with care. I assembled the tank today and sealed the bottom with silicone so that will take a couple of days to cure, so it is not fully set up. I am attaching a couple photos just for reference and so others can see the enclosure and trust what they are purchasing. I am VERY excited to get substrate in this enclosure as well as my ball python, who I have had for 15 years. So this was me spoiling her and making sure she’s going to enjoy a hopeful 15 years more! I truly am impressed with the enclosure thus far and I plan on making another review in the following weeks as I get my snake settled. The only complaint or conflict I ran into was the ceramic light bracket. Though it works fine and does not seem to present any immediate issues, they recommend NOT using this for the tank so I am a little confused as to why it is an option in the first place and the only option-assuming that it is some type of possible hazard. But all things considered, that is a minimal problem and I am very satisfied with Kages!
Came in much faster than expected. Dispite cosmetic damage to the box, everything was in great shape (FexEx delivery person insisted I open it up before he left). We will be assembling it this week and will add pictures of it.
I purchased two 4x2x2 enclosures for my bioactive ball python setups. To say I've had improvements in temps and humidity would be an understatement. These enclosures make it SO EASY. Humidity and temperatures stay exactly where they should. Mine were built and to my home within 3 weeks. I'm a very happy customer and WILL be back for my 8x2x2s when my girls outgrow these! THANK YOU!
Just built my ball python a beautiful new enclosure thanks to these guys. Great customer service, helped me with every step of the way. Ill definitely be shopping with these guys again.
I ordered this cage with the dual screens for my 13yo dumeril's boa. The cage arrived about two and a half weeks after ordering, which I thought to be pretty quick. The cage is packed very well, and there were no missing parts. The instructions paired with stickers on each piece which made assembly easy. I do recommend having a second person, if possible, particularly for the first few pieces.
Once assembled, the cage itself is very sturdy, and surprisingly light. Every part fits very well, and I was happy with the overall quality. The front-center support piece came as a thick piece of acrylic, which is both sturdy and gives the cage a more open look. I thought this was a definite upgrade from the black piece. The glass fits and slides well. One thing I did really appreciate is having been provided with the scrap pieces from the screen cutouts, because this works perfectly to set on the screens if not in use. The final detail that really pleased me was the slots into which the glass slides on either side. An early video review I had seen pointed this out as a potential pitfall for heavy animals, and it looks like they have since improved the design. I used a tube of black caulk. This cage looks sharp!
A couple notes:
If using a showcase lock for the doors, you will need a stick-on due to the middle support piece. This is easily found, it is just worth mentioning in case you plan to buy all of your accessories before you get the cage, like myself.
Likewise, be cognizant of the thickness of any stick-on handles for the glass. If they are too thick, it's possible for the back piece to bump into the front when opening the doors all the way. This is a very minor thing, but also worth mentioning.
I recommend caulking as much as possible before putting in the glass, as it makes reaching inside to get the various angles much easier.
I can't recommend this cage enough. I am thrilled with mine. I will be coming back, and I will tell everyone who will listen about Kages. Thank you to the Kages team for an awesome product. In a world of mass fabrication, I really appreciate when I get something hand-built to this level of quality.
We ordered a total of seven 4x2x2 enclosures. They all came in on time and were very easy to assemble. I’m not one with a handy hand but my sister and I were able to assemble them with no problem. I’ve had the enclosures for about 4-5 months now and they haven’t given me one problem. This specific enclosure is awesome for bearded dragons as they provide the perfect amount of space. Our bearded dragons love love love their home! Thank you Kages.
I needed a short-term larger enclosure for my young Savannah Monitor that was high quality and lightweight because I'm pending a long distance move across the country, and I really didn't want to lug a heavy 5+ foot box across with me. This fit the bill perfectly! I also had a few questions and customizations I needed, and the customer service I received was prompt and very accommodating. I will be upgrading him to larger, final enclosure once he outgrows this one (honestly, many would say he already has, but the logistics of the move wouldn't permit anything much larger as of yet) that fits his adult-sized needs a bit better, and I will definitely be a returning customer!
Enclosure for a ball python! This was a gift for our son for Christmas for his ball python! Medusa finally started eating again! She’s not stressed anymore from being in the glass enclosure! Holds heat and humidity very well. My son Spartacus it down 3 times per day. He wants to get a misting system now. Zach was very helpful helping me choose what light fixtures and heat source that I would need! Very happy with the purchase. Now my son wants to buy one for his ball python Leo. Thanks again Zach!
We placed our order and after about 13 days our cage came in. We were delighted to put it together and have everything safely kept. The cage itself is spectacular, no flaws, and it looks amazing. We got a Under that tank heat cut out and we ordered 3 lights all came and was very easy to put together. All together it’s an amazing cage, made from an amazing and caring team. Thanks for my cage!
Came quick (like a week), packed perfectly, easy assembly. Looks fantastic. Very high quality. One happy boa and keeper! Will definitely be back for more.
It is a great cage for my girl. I love that the substrate barrier is high enough to add depth which is great Ninja loves to dig. The only thing I was confuse for a short moment was installing the doors, cleaning the tracks is a bit more difficult as I cannot easily remove it. That is a small price to pay, the door is not made of glass which is a plus for me, it is much more durable, which is great when you have a heavy lizard scratch at it.
It is a lot better then I thought it'll. I truly like the fact that the substrate barrier is high (haven't seen this with other enclosures). This is great because my girl loves to dig and I could put in enough depth for her. The thing that confused me was the door, cleaning the tracks is a little difficult as I cannot just remove the doors. However, I do like that the door aren't glass, meaning its more durable. On the side note I love how these enclosures seem more cater to lizards rather then snake like most are, I love the logo of the lizard.
I ordered two of these units for my Northern Blue Tongue Skinks and the cages are amazing. They arrived quickly and without any issues. Very easy to assemble and had no issues fitting it all together. The only issue I ran into was a defective ceramic fixture but the same morning I emailed asking if I could get a replacement, I was told they would send one out the same day. Top tier customer service and response time. They've won a lifetime customer because of the quality of the cage and service. I'll be ordering an enclosure for my Ackie monitors very soon.
I recently purchased one of these enclosures for my Merauke Blue-Tongue Skink, and I can honestly say that I am very impressed with everything about the enclosure. The fact that it ships flat made it much easier to get upstairs in my home. The assembly was simple and very easy to follow. The quality of the PVC is very durable, and the color adds a nice touch that glass enclosures cannot match. I highly recommend these enclosures to anyone looking for a large (while also being lightweight and durable) enclosure for their pet reptiles.
Wow, what a cage. The first aspect that of this enclosure that blew me away was just how fast the shipping was. After placing my order, it only look around 5 days to get it delivered to me! About half an hour of building by myself and my enclosure is complete. Soon enough my baby northern blue tongue skink arrived and moved into this enclosure. Some things I’ve observed after using this enclosure is that aside from the fast shipping, this enclosure is absolutely stunning, all while keeping the temperature and humidity at good and concistant levels across the entire enclosure. I’d recommend this to any reptile owner! I seriously think that this enslosure provides gives your animal a generous space to live, while making a showpiece for your house!
Perfect for my little guy, he loves the extra space. Almost looks as if he is smiling. Love love love the built in lights. Easy to assemble, could not be happier with this purchase!!
The 4 x 2 x 2 enclosure arrived as promised and was extremely easy to assemble, it looks fantastic and Zach quickly answered all my questions, often within minutes of my emailing him. I am very happy I chose Reptile Kages for my Blue tongue skink.
This product is super simple to set up and for those with a little skill (and like to make mods), this material is easy to work with! I decided to cut two 9" holes in the top for some dome basking lights....
I have a bearded dragon and two snakes in my elementary science classroom. I was required by the district to find a cage with enclosed lights. Thank goodness Kages exists, or I'd be without classroom pets, which my learners adore. The 4' x 2' x 2' Kage enclosure is homey for my bearded dragon and attractive in my classroom. (When my snakes are larger, I will buy Kage enclosures for them too.) . Because the enclosure for my bearded dragon is four times the price of an 40-gallon glass tank from the pet store, I was initially bummed about the price. However, I quickly put the price out of my mind because I truly care about my pets' wellbeing. Going from a 40-gallon glass tank to a Kages enclosure is like going from a run-down one- bedroom apartment to a newly built four bedroom home. After my Kages purchase, I felt guilty that I housed my bearded dragon in a tiny glass tank.
Zach immediately answered all of my emails, and the cage was delivered no more than 36 hours after I placed the order. Freaky fast. His manner of professionalism and his service can't be beat. Additionally, his wealth of knowledge about the needs of a bearded dragon blew me away. I wouldn't be surprised I were told that he had degrees in biology and veterinary science. I highly recommend that you go through Kages for all of your enclosure purchases.
I was hesitant to buy this cage at first because they only had five star reviews but now I know why. It was an easy setup and definitely worth the money. If i get another bearded dragon then i definitely will buy from this place again.
I ordered this enclosure 60" x 24" x 24" in 03/16/2019, and today 03/27/2019 it is here and completed. It's amazing. I followed the instruction sheet that came with it step by step. The panels are labelled and just follow instruction to line up the labels etc. Super easy. Also I found it's easier to communicate via facebook message because I get reply almost within minutes if not very quick. This is my first custom enclosure and turned out great. There was another company I thought about it, but they told me will take 12 weeks at least to ship. OMG, my tortoises can not wait that long. Five stars.
Ordered this enclosure for my bearded dragon, and I am so happy with it! So easy to put together, and it’s beautiful.
I was looking for an upgrade for my beardie who had quickly outgrown his 40 gallon tank when I came across Kages. They are priced very reasonably. The cost is similar to enclosures of similar sizes from other manufacturers and they offer free shipping.
I had a ton of questions about the enclosures and Kages was extremely patient and helpful answering all the questions I had. I messaged them on Facebook and they always answered promptly. When I shared concerns about different temperature and humidity gauges I wanted to be able to use, they were great with customizing the enclosure and adding extra holes to fit those needs.
The construction was easy with the labeled pieces and step by step instructions. There was some damage to the larger top, back, and bottom pieces where a few corners had been crushed during shipping. But Kages was quick to acknowledge and handle the issue.
I am extremely impressed with the heat insulation inside the enclosure. I had 160W bulb and a CHE to maintain the right temps in my previous cage. But this much larger enclosure only requires a 75W basking bulb to achieve the same temps.
Overall, I am very happy with my purchase and my beardie seems very happy with all the extra room. If you are looking for a company that will truly customize an enclosure for your reptile's needs at a reasonable price and with great customer service, Kages is it!
