The Dragon Strand Breeder Series Hybrid Cages

The Breeder Series is a screen/PVC hybrid that combines the advantages of each system and greatly increases the functionality of your cage.  Sometimes arboreal reptile keepers who are used to all screen cages wonder if it is acceptable to have three solid sides.  If this is your question, consider checking out this page which discusses this very issue: Screen Cages vs. Solid Side Cages Blog Post.  Here are main advantages of the Breeder Series.

  • Automated Hydration Ready:  To successfully maintain breeding groups of arboreal reptiles or amphibians an automated misting system is critical.  Dragon Strand Breeding cages accommodate automated misting systems with solid PVC sides and back.  Misting systems may be installed without worrying about water shooting out of the cage and damaging furniture and walls. (Misting nozzles not included)
  • Space Effective:  Breeding groups need an effective cage layout in your floor and wall space.  The Dragon Strand Breeder Cage System is designed to fit on standard 18” deep wire shelving found at common club and home improvement stores.  An entire breeding project may be housed in eight feet of wall space.
  • Visual Isolation: Solid walls provide visual isolation so that territorial behavior does not weaken your breeding group.
  •  Full Growth Potential: Most baby herps do best raised individually. The Dragon Strand Nursery System gives each baby its own cage.  Raise your babies to their full potential free of bullying and competition.
  • Optional Integrated Laying Box:  In many species, egg-laying females require a place to dig and lay their eggs.  For these species, the Dragon Strand Laying Box fits under the Medium Tall size cage and provides over 9” of digging depth.  Your female now has full time access to a laying site which is in a full functioning cage.
  • Quick Cleaning: With a group to maintain, time is at a premium with cage cleaning.  A trap door and removable PVC floor make both spot cleaning and deep cleaning of the floor a quick, easy, and non-intrusive event. Even an entire rack of 24 nursery cages can be cleaned in under ten minutes.
  • Easy interior Set-up:  Arboreal herps require branches, vines, other climbing surfaces and foliage. Dragon Strand Breeding Cages come with vine loops and, on the larger cages, pre-installed branch holders which make creating an interior environment simple.  Branches, artificial vines and foliage can be installed in minutes.

Accessories

Each of the Breeder Series Hybrid Cages has a compatible Drainage Tray and Substrate Tray (except the Nursery Cages).  The Drainage Tray fits under the cage and catches water from your misting or drip system.  Reference this post on Drainage to help you with this part of the chameleon cage setup.  The Substrate Tray fits inside the cage and provides a basin to fill with coco peat,sphagnum moss, or any other substrate appropriate for the animal you keep.  For egg laying females please use the Dragon Strand Laying Box which is compatible with the Medium Tall Breeder Cage and provides digging depth under the cage.
