" all I can say is "WOW and Thank You" . they will make my cage making a much easier and a more fun task. Once again thank you for your web site and you prompt support"
Burt Tejada

I am ... very happy with your plans, the organization that you have put into it and I am extremely happy with the response I have gotten from you when I have encountered a problem.
It sure does save money. At the same time it allows me and others like me to experience making the cage for our animal (animals) that we care so much about. I think that when someone takes the time to sit down and make something like this for their animal it really shows how much they care for them and respect them.

With your plans you can also alter the cage to each and everyone's specifications, or needs. I think what you are doing is wonderful and I want to thank you again.

"This is going to make an 11 year old and his lizard Rex very happy".


Spent $108.00 at Lowes, another $65.00 at Home Depot buying things that Lowes didn't have..... Spending time with my son in a hardware store.... PRICELESS!"


"Overall, the best thing I have found from the cage designs... is that:
They work!!!!

They allow you to view and touch your Iguana from all sides, This is a must!

Once you have the material list you don't go back to the hardware store.

Just follow the instructions and it comes out perfect.

Your maintance will be much easier.

Your iguana will thank you

Once again, you will have built something cool. "

Regards and best to all our Green Iguana friends, Lance and Joey Portwood Glidden, Texas ".


"Very well thought-out designs"



Reptile Cages built from the reptile cage plans book

Over time we will build up a range of cage designs and ideas for you to examine regarding homemade reptile enclosures. These snake reptile cages were built using the "How to build reptile enclosures" as a reference guide and then altering the plans to suit the individual needs of the owner.

The images can be clicked on to enlarge them.

Cage 1


I did use your plans as a reference for the one I did build which you can see in the pics. I actually spent alittle bit of money on this one but it was worth it. I used half inch thick glass for the sides and quarter inch thick plexi glass for the doors. It has a metal base and back base and the main backing is one inch thick Oak wood. I installed a toggle switch for the light and the heat admiter. and there is a one inch gap at the top for ventilation and there is about an eighth inch gap between all doors. I also built the base for it and stained it.

Cages 2 & 3


I am sending you some photos of two cages I built using your plans and expanding my ideas. The snake cage is 66" long and 34" high to include the hood, with a 3/4" center divider.  I don't think the King and Corn would get along in the same cage. Ha.

Thank you for your website and help.

Cages 3 & 4


I took a picture of both my recent snake cages that I have built.
The one with sliding glass doors that I designed myself with a few downfalls and the larger, more recent drop down door cage using some more of the information from your plans. The first was a 4'X2'X18" and the larger one is 5'X3'X2'.
