||ELC insect cage
This is the best cage to choose for keeping most pet stick
insects. It can also house a large mantid.
ELC cage is easy to use, because the lid lifts off completely and one of the
white side panels slides upwards. So you can reach down into the cage or reach
in from the side.
Keep the interior clean by lining the floor of the
cage with a disposable ELC Liner, replaced weekly.
Stick insects do really well in the ELC cage because they can
easily climb the white sides (these are full of specially made holes which give
the insects a good foothold).
This cage is tall and airy, and made from
plastic which is easy to wash clean. Designed by Small-Life Supplies and
precision made in the UK.
