The Congo cage is large and spacious for our sugar gliders. Plenty of room for pouches; tree branches; and other accessories. The bars are spaced the right amount for the sugar gliders to grip but not allow an escape. I used the clips of their pouch and toy to ensure that the top 2 doors stay closed. -Andy K.

Just recently got my first 2 sugar gliders a few weeks ago, and I bought this cage for them. So far, it’s easy to clean and my gliders love it. However my only issue with it, is that there are 2 small doors that open on each side of the cage near the top. Somehow my sugar gliders did manage to break out in the middle of the night and with them still being new and not all the way bonded, catching them was not easy. If you buy this cage, I recommend to zip tie the small doors on the side of the cage. -Jessica B.

Great size. Instruction sheet does not help at all but the YouTube video helped a bunch. However my wheels do not “easily fit” like the video says they should. I can’t even get them in so I can’t use them :/ -Lisa P.

[Response from Seller: Thank you for your review, Lisa. The wheels fit tightly for support, you will have to push rather hard to insert the post of the wheel into the stand legs. We hope this helps!]

by RachealHubbartt on May 6, 2020

My hubby ordered 2 of these cages! My gliders love them! I had to try and fix some of the sides due to wires being bent! The instructions were not really helpful. I had to watch a tutorial to get them put together. I really need a third but not sure due to bent wire that make it so my glider may be able to escape. -Racheal H.

[Response from Seller: Thank you for your review, Racheal. All cages are shipping with insurance so if you see damage upon delivery please be sure to contact customer support regarding repairs or replacement parts. We hope this information helps!]

by D.kinslow86 on April 24, 2020

I love how big the cage is. The big doors are perfect. I do not like the wire shelves and ladders they don't snug up to the sides of the cage and they are not very stable. I can't use the wooden bars that came with it either, they were cut too short so they don't fit right. Overall though my sugar gliders love it. -Danyelle K.

by Nyabear on February 22, 2020

I really like how big this cage is but the bottom part of the cage I cannot pull out the bottom bars, the tray is fine. But when I pull out the bottom bars it does not slide in correctly i have to put them at an angle and even then it wont work sometimes. Its hard to push it in so I just gave up on sliding it out if it wasnt for that I wouldve gave a 5 star. Its a shame such a good cage has to have a huge flaw on the bottom bars. -Jennifer W.

Nice cage but some bars came bent. Bending the bars back, it felt like they might break. Other than that, the cage is great. -Terri G.

by Eric on January 15, 2020

I've had mine for almost a week. To start off, the instructions for assembling SUCK!!! The hardware that comes with are different sizes, different metal, and when you have assembled the cage, you have a surplus of hardware left. I am a very handy man that can make almost anything work but come on Exotic Nutrition! Moving on, the quality and durability are superb. The only complaint I have as far as the actual cage goes is the bars run North and South with 7.5" before there is a cross bar. This makes it impossible to hang my water bottles without them being to tall for my gliders. My gliders also have a difficult time climbing on the side of the cage because the cross bar spacing is to far apart. -Eric S.

by BrittG77 on November 7, 2019

I would have given this 5 stars except the instructions that came with the cage were pretty awful. The video the provide in the description is pretty good and somewhat easy to follow, but it tells you the wrong way to install the support bars on the rolling stand. In the video it shows you to install them in the outside of the stand, but you are actually supposed to put them on the inside of the stand (contact customer service and they will send you a picture). Good news is customer service is amazing! I contacted them about the issue via email and they responded within minutes! My shipping was free standard, which was estimated 5-7 business days. It came in 2 days!! As far as quality of the cage...It’s sturdy and strong. Just the right size for two gliders and all their bedding and toys. It could easily house another glider or 2 comfortably. I love the multiple doors. I did buy extra locks for the smaller side window/doors. All in all, once over the issue of stability, I was super happy with the company responsiveness and the quality of the cage. -Brittney G.

by Anonymous on November 7, 2019

I’ll start from the beginning.. I like this cage a lot and would recommend it. It’s easy to put together pretty big, lots of room. But lately I’ve run into a problem, there’s a small door on the right hand side of the cage near the top that my gliders keep managing to get open no matter how many clips I put to keep it shut, I’ve had two escapes in a week. I’ve had to become quite creative to be able to keep this small door shut so they don’t get out during the night hours. Overall this is a great cage, I think I’ve just got some escape artists that I’ll need to modify it a bit for their needs. -Aleia K.

[Response from Seller: Thank you for your review, Aleia. The latch on the small side doors can be bent wider to create a stronger hold. Otherwise, the best way to prevent escape would be to simply zip tie the door shut and use the front doors for secured access to the cage. We hope this information helps!]

This item is large and I was concerned that shipping might take awhile. Exotic Nutrition shipped this very quickly and it arrived in great shape. I have three gliders and this cage gives them plenty of room to move around. It is well-made, sturdy, and assembly was easy. I was able to assemble this myself but it would have been much easier with a second pair of hands. The doors are large and allow access throughout the cage from top to bottom. There are also smaller access doors on the sides of the cage that require just a small amount of pressure to open. My gliders have figured out how to open them but they are easily secured with a zip tie. Overall, I'm thrilled with this purchase and couldn't be happier with Exotic Nutrition's service. I did not run into any problems but if I had, I feel confident that my concerns would have been heard and resolved expediently. -Tracy M.

by Carley033 on July 13, 2019

I am very happy with the congo sugar glider cage. My two sugar gliders love to run around at night and the cage they had before just didn't seem big enough for their shenanigans. This cage has plenty of room for them to jump and run around. They enjoy the ladders and wood pieces that came with the cage. Plus there is plenty of extra room to fit all of their accessories. Having this cage ensures if I want to obtain more gliders I will have plenty of room. Although I love the end result in regard to the congo cage, the instructions for assembly that came with it were hilariously difficult to follow. Once my husband and I started putting the cage together, it was easy to figure out where the rest of it went. Definitely easier to put together with two people. -Carley B.

I bought this cage in January 2019 and it's held up so well since! For reference I'm using this cage to house 2 rats on the bottom and 2 parrotlets up top, it works fantastic! I created my own divider with a slate of wood and a dog cage tray to put on top so it would catch the bird droppings, and I modified it to slide out just like the bottom part does. It works perfect for me and I haven't had any issues since I got it! Since it comes with perches I just used that for the birds along with the perches I already had, and for the rats I modified the ramps and shelves since it's in a smaller area, and it makes the ramps more sturdy for them too. Both sets of animals have plenty of room and it was MUCH cheaper to do all the modifying myself instead of buying a double cage that already has the divider (most I've seen of this quality are close to $400 if not more with shipping). The double feed dishes it comes with are nice but corners are hard to clean out but they work just fine for both animals. The ONLY problem I found at all with this cage was the wheels and bolts, when putting together the wheels were very hard to put on because the space was slightly too small. I had to have my boyfriend shove them as hard as he could to get them to squeeze in. The problem with the bolts is that over time the bottom ones near the wheels will become loose, even if you aren't moving the cage, so just be sure to tighten them every now and again and you're good to go! -Kayla R.

Very good quality for the price. It was easy to put together. The only downside is, we bought it for sugar gliders, because there is not a lot of cross bars, and it limits the way you can set up the cage. But it’s a big upgrade from what we had before. -Brian J.

by Unikorngrrl on May 26, 2019

It holds up well over time. I have one that's 5 yrs old. I use them for disabled squirrels, and it still doesn't need painting. When I need replacement parts, those are dependably available as well. A cage becomes useless much sooner if you can't replace its parts. -Laura R.

by DakotaSugar on May 3, 2019

This cage was an amazing step up from our sugar gliders old cage and they love it. So much more room for toys and running around. The instructions are very vague but the instructional video on Youtube helped out a lot. Set up in about an hour by myself. Super sturdy well made cage, came with some bent bars but those were easy to put back into place. Overall very happy with this purchase and I know Ekko and Bandit are very happy with their new home :) -Zach S.

by Robiden on February 16, 2019

The cage is good the only thing I dislike is the quality of the shelves and ramps. They are so flimsy. The ramps bow when my squirrel walks on them and the shelves and ramps ‘jump’ when my squirrel does because they are so light. I will definitely be looking for better ones but with what I paid for the cage can’t see paying another $60 for the ones sold through here in case they are the same. Nice cage overall just make the shelves and ramps the same sturdy quality. -Rachel O.

Love the cage, very sturdy and the large doors are great!

We ordered this cage for 2 sugar gliders. It is outstanding! Assembly was fairly straightforward, although the screws could have been more easily identifiable. We ended up with the wrong screws in the base, and had to swap them out half-way through the process. The online video detailing the assembly was concise and covered just about any questions we had. You only need a Philips screw driver and a 14MM box wrench. Once assembled, this thing is huge! There is plenty of room for toys, hammocks, branches and wheels. Our gliders love the space and really seem happy about their new home. In summary, this cage is well worth the investment in your gliders happiness. -Johnny M.

I have two sugar gliders who are nothing short of ecstatic about this cage. I received my order quickly, packaged well, and with no pieces missing. I too suggest watching the assembly video, by following along my boyfriend and I were able to put this together in about 40 minutes. I went back and forth for a really long time when it comes to different cage options; I love my little rescue babies, and I want them to live their best life. I read all of the reviews and was still sceptical, so I had to leave one myself in hopes of giving another overly-cautious sugar momma some peace of mind. This cage is fabulous, Exotic Nutrition customer service was quick and courteous, and I truly couldn't be happier. Make the plunge, your babies will thank you! -Heather & Trevor H.

I have 2 male gliders and their old cage was so small. I decided to purchase a larger cage that could accommodate toys and snuggly spaces, and decided on the Congo cage. My gliders and I both love this cage. It took some time to put together, but it wasn’t difficult. I really like that it’s on wheels so I can move it to vacuum under it. The only thing I would change is making more height on the shelf to accommodate treat bags, vitamins, spray bottles etc. My son and I both really like the cage door locks. They’re easy to it feels secure. My gliders are super happy and they play and swing and all their toys fit. Overall, I would recommend this cage to any glider owner. It’s large and looks nice and happy gliders is the perfect combination for me. The cage also shipped very quickly and took 5 days to arrive (to Utah). -ShaNae M.

Awesome cage- keeps the smell very contained and very easy to clean. Would of liked if it was a bit wider for more room after putting perches and toys and pouches in it, it is a little cramped but overall this is a great cage for my 2 sugar gliders. Says it can hold up to 4 but I think it would be a little cramped for 4. -Marco R.

Overall, if you are looking for a well built cage, then you should consider this one. -Venoda D.

My little girl squirrel loves this cage. Very roomy, came on time and it went together smoothly. Although it does boast "paw safe", my little girl is used to comfort and I am having a hard time finding shelf covers to soften contact for her little feet. Another issue (perhaps I viewed too many cages) is I was under the impression the bottom would be cross wired. Squirrels love to hide their food and everything falls through the bottom grate including the bedding. Another issue is their messiness and had only found one cage with a mess guard. Please before I have to, design a new add on kit that offers shelf covers, cross wire bottom and mess guard to fit Congo dimensions. I'd buy that kit in a heartbeat! -Ellyn L.

Even though the cage took some time to get together, the end result was worth the wait. Our squirrel loves it because it gives him more room to jump around. We like it because it fits in the space we needed it too, and it rolls around when we need to relocate or clean it.

We are very pleased, even with issue discussed below. The cage and stand are relatively easy to put together (with two people — especially at the start with the bigger, heavier pieces). Assembled they are very sturdy, yet mobile with the wheels. It's easy to access glider, to and reposition toys, ladders, etc. through the wide doors. This high-rise is so impressive, it makes our hamsters feel like second-class citizens in their flimsy store-bought cages. Only one drawback that we encountered, and it was temporary: How to **affix** the cage to the wheeled stand was not obvious. It is not addressed in the otherwise very helpful video or in the wordless diagrams. Everything is individually super sturdy and the stand is definitely weight bearing. Okey dokey. Good to go. Happy glider. Still love the whole setup. Great product, great site. Thanks! -Daryl K.
