Guinea Pig Cages- Guinea Habitat

I was just searching online for the cheapest guinea pig igloos or living world domes, and found the coolest (well close anyway) guinea pig cages. They are called guinea habitats.

Compared to c&c cages they are just a bit easier because you don't have to run about finding parts, etc. I love how easy it is to separate the sections with the dividers and then how they have openings in them that can open or you can put a ramp in between.

While I wish I had found these sooner, I don't need them now. We have 1 6x2 grid cage, a 2x2 grid cage, and 2 2x3 grid cages, plus another 7 or 8 cages for piggies. But they look awesome, and the cost isn't bad at all. $37.95 I believe is one of the prices I found with free shipping. They are almost 4 feet long, by 2 feet, and 14 inches high. I like the idea of the canvas underneath, sounds interesting at least. Cost effective I don't know :( for c&c cages we spend $18 on the grids and then $20 on the sheet of coroplast and can get two cages out of that.

Here is what I was thinking though, as I can't do buy the guinea habitats. I am thinking of using a wire cutter to cut out a couple of grids, and extra coroplast to make a few two ways ramps. Then I can sand down any sharp areas for the piggies, and give them a kitchen YAH!!!

If I get around to it, I will post pics, but you have to check out the guinea habitats, they are so neat.


  1. Those look great! I just got the grids and zip ties, so I'll be calling for coroplast today. Wish me luck with the assembly!

  2. Good luck Laurel, I hope you get it all put together nice and easy. Let me know if you need any help.


Special Notice:

Guinea Pigs are very social animals. If you are considering adopting one, please consider having more than one for improved health and personality.
