Looking to pull the trigger on some Animal Plastics T8 (48”x24”x12”) enclosures for my females. Probably will keep my males in 20 Long aquariums at least for now. Does anyone have any comments about Animal Plastics or recommendations for other manufacturers?
I have a T10 from them. It is great but I have never had any other brand…sooo
I do not have A Animal plastics rack but I can say I am real happy with my C serpents combo rack check them out and pull the trigger on what ever brand that makes you feel the best all the big names will be made with real quality in my opinion. C serpents just worked best for me as they would make and ship it to me the fastest at the time and patients is not my strongest suit lol.
I do not own one, but I’ve been looking at enclosures from scale-box.
I have a arboreal one. I haven’t put anything in it yet though lol. They are nice but lead time is super long right now.
I spoke to AP recently and was told the wait time is 5 months. However, I do own several of their racks and larger enclosures, and I’ve never been anything but happy with them.
AP is a fantastic company. If I’m not mistaken they use ABS plastic not PVC.
Animal plastics enclosures are well made. I have 2 currently (Use to have many more years ago). I also would recommend Vision, Boaphile and if you can get your hands on them Neodesha (the old school ones, they’re durable and last next to forever).
I second the recommendation for Boaphile Plastics!
There are many great options for PVC/ Plastic cages out in the market. Some companies are overpriced in my opinion others are fairly priced. Animal Plastics is a great company with great products and excellent customer service! I also like All American Cages. They are well made/packaged PVC enclosures at a terrific price! I will list a few great companies that I’ve heard great things about or personally have had a great experience with…
*Zen Habitats- https://www.zenhabitats.com/products/48x24x16-pvc-reptile-enclosure
*Scale Box- https://www.scaleboxes.com/
*Bio Dude- https://www.thebiodude.com/collections/reptile-kages-pvc-enclosures
*Reptile Basics- https://www.reptilebasics.com/caging/
*Animal Plastics- https://apcages.com/
*All American Cages- https://allamericancages.com/
Good luck hope you find something you like. Shop around!
Just be aware about Kages and Custom Reptile Habitats, their delivery times are much longer than what they are currently advertising.
I went with Animal Plastics. Placed my order the other day along with Pro Products RHP’s. Thanks for your help everyone!
I had an AP cage (terrestrial uromastxy/bearded dragon model) that I sold after my elderly dragon passed away, I wish I would have kept it, AP enclosures are super nice, and they were honest about the lead time too! So if you can wait, great choice!
I’d also like to add https://thedragonhaus.com/ in case you ever purchase another pvc enclosure. also, sorry for the late reply.
been looking over every pvc builder I could find and here are a few I think stand out still have the wait times most have but price and quality are on point these are my top 3
Another one to add to the list is Next Level Displays. Good guy and uses awesome freedom breeder tubs. Often little to no wait times:
Thanks again for your order. Right now and for some time yet there will be unexpected delays in the USA manufacturing segment and this is causing unexpected delays across all sectors.
We do advertise our average times and do keep them updated.
We have also expended since you wrote this post, invested on more machinery, hired more people and today have some of the better times, so one of the largest in the USA.
Custom Reptile Habitats
Thanks everyone. I really appreciate the help.
Anyone know a supplier that doesn’t have a 3 month wait?
Next Level says most racks are in stock and short lead times. They shipped my rack out immediately.
