Hey Ken nice set-ups. Whats your opinion on the herpcages enclosures? I've been looking into some new Vivs and they have great prices, just wondering about the quality?

They are excellent to be honest, seem VERY strong and durable. I talked to him today about them, and he was telling me that they combine the plastic like material with some sort of glue, but seriously...they are TOUGH, I would recommend them myself...and the only problem is, the hinges make a cringey(?) noise, thats kind of annoying, and he said (thats why I called), just to rub a little vegetable oil on it, and it will be like nothing...gonna do that after I take some pics...

they look great ken. Are they dimensions 12x12x18? Also, are those green things food and water bowl holders?

Ken Bartenfeld

Hello Brandon, yes the black things are food and water bowl holders. Got them off of pangereptile.com, pretty darn nice I have to say, and just ordered 3 more for the other cages.

Holy crap, check out the 6th picture down in the top of the cages, the saran wrap looks like a freakin persons face!!! Does anyone else see that? Thats freaky!

The dimensions are 12x12x16. I will be putting that Clarks Gargoyle Diet inside the food holders. I heard the stuff is just awesome, we will see...I can't wait to get them! Many many pics will be posted on here, don't really see much about agricolae on here...

Ken,

I see the face. Yes it odd but to be honest.... its common to have that happen. You just got lucky enough to find a ghost in your home. Its seems like it knows you keep reptiles and is just looking around to see whats new in the house - curious to see the new animals or home. I see them quite often myself in windows and mirrors.

Jeff: I was told they don't really hide, they are more of an out and about gecko, or so this one guys is that I am getting them from...I was thinking of putting a slab of cork in the back...dunno if I have much room left ;-)

Jason: Thats...uhhh, scary! A ghost...looks like a hotty... :roll: :wink:

Ken,
How much was shipping on them? Leland

Ken Bartenfeld

Cheap, just $10 a cage...

I thought about that earlier this morning Steve!

Thanks Harold!

Not really when you looking for something smaller, they only offer larger sizes then I would have needed.

Ken Bartenfeld
02-26-2006, 09:17 AM
Yeah Moof, I talked to about 7 breeders and they said it was fine, I added more branches and ordered some cork to throw in there. I was told they really don't hide much, and the guy said when he went to New Calendonia they were mostly just hanging around in the trees. The plant will grow as for foliage...

Do you keep them Moof?

the moof
02-26-2006, 04:10 PM
not YET... :P im hoping to broaden my gecko range as much as possible, so it might happen, you never know.

Ken,

Your set-ups are very similar to mine. They look great!

Ken,

Where did you get those flourescent lights? And were they pricey? Ill need to be getting them soon, but dont know where to look for the best prices

Ken Bartenfeld
02-27-2006, 08:21 AM
Cheap as hell! I got them at Wal Mart for like $8 I think, or something like that, I looked at a petshop and found they were WAY over priced for plant lights, like $30 for something smaller!

Nate, long time no see! I try ;-)

the moof
02-27-2006, 12:32 PM
muuuch better, i must say! i really like them now.

congrats,

I have 6 barrs cages for my neonate snakes, and they are fantastic. They hold humidity incredibly well, are inexpensive, lightweight, and super easy to clean. The only thing is, for geckos a white cage might be a bit stressful, being so bright.

ryanm

Ken Bartenfeld
02-27-2006, 01:49 PM
Hmm, I dunno about that to be honest, good thought/question though Ryan...doesn't seem THAT bright though...the flash really increases it, and its kind of dark, so I edited the brightness of the picture.

ryanm
02-27-2006, 01:59 PM
Yeah, like I said, I have a bunch with young snakes in them, and they can stress easily too. None of them are having any problems, but I was just thinking that a gecko species that is particularly high strung might not do so well in them. But I'm sure if you provide plenty of plants and stuff to hide on, even high strung geckos would get used to it pretty quickly.

These are my barrs cages for my neonates:

Hmmm, never heard agricolae were high strung to be honest. And I also heard they really don't hide at all...curious where you have heard this from? I was told they usually are just hanging around on branches, even when offered some where to hide, even in this GEKKO Journal I just got about vieillardi, says there were "pieces of tree bark were initually included on the floor of the cage for cover but were never utilised by the lizards and were subsequently removed."

Any ideas?

BTW, love your setup Ryan! What kind of snakes?

ryanm
02-27-2006, 05:02 PM
I think you misunderstood me. I wasn't saying the geckos *you* were keeping in them were high strung, I was just making a general comment for others who may read this thread, like the cages, and decide to buy some. The bright white *might* be an issue, depending on what species you kept in them.

In the bottom two cages are a pair of Centralian Pythons (Morelia bredli), the next two up are some realy nice jungle carpets from Will Leary (Morelia spilota cheynei), and in the top pair of cages are a pair of het granite Irian Jaya carpets (Morelia spilota variegata). They are all 18 months old or younger, so they're still in the 2' barrs cages. My adults are all in 4' cages to the right (not in the picture).

02-27-2006, 05:16 PM
I see I see, maybe I did misunderstand what you were saying. I don't even have them yet ;-) Getting one pair tomorrow.

ryanm
02-27-2006, 05:22 PM
I just checked out your site, your breeders page is broken. :(

I, too, have an addiction to Australian reptiles, but mine are snakes of the genus Morelia. They are highly addictive, so stay away from them unless you want to own 10 or 20 of them.

ryanm

Ken Bartenfeld
02-27-2006, 05:36 PM
LOL, some addictions are worth it...yea, Ray needs to get working on the rest of the site...heh?! I have the pics too!

I like the white because it requires less light to light the cage, I can have one light over a few cages and they all are lit up pretty well.

Ken Bartenfeld
02-27-2006, 09:05 PM
Thats a good point...

ryanm
02-28-2006, 01:39 AM
I like the white because you can take really good pictures in them, because they light up so well. :wink:

ryanm

Ken Bartenfeld
02-28-2006, 08:53 AM
They light up a little TO well with the flash. Waiting for a pair right now, can't wait!

ryanm
02-28-2006, 01:54 PM
Nah, just about right if you ask me: :wink:
