    I would like to build a muilt unit lizard cage. Im running out of steam for this project because of the cost.

    Im at the point now of just using clear rubbermaid totes and shelving.

    I would like to instead of it being one big unit for them to be stackable so i can take them apart if need be.

    I would like 2 cages to be 8ft long 3ft high and 4ft wide.

    The rest being 4ft X 3ft X 4ft.

    They will need to have doors or be on rollers so i can pull them out to.clean them

    There also needs to be enough space for heat lamps and such.

    any pics, web links anything is great. I really what to get this done with a minimal cost. The more costly the less likliy DH will go for it.

    I just saw your other post in the "lizads" thread. If you are setting up a cage for a Uromastyx of any kind, you have to take into consideration the elevated temperatures ..therefore, rubbermaids will absolutely NOT work.. they will melt!

    If you google reptile forums and/or reptile DIY cages, you will find endless links for plans and pictures.

    Some forums off the top of my head:

    The Reptile Room, Alex Hue Reptiles, Bluetongueskinks.net, Repashy... to name a few.
