I have heard of them and read about them, even seen them. But never personally used them. I heard they are great! Very sturdy plastic, easy to clean, stackable, even connectible! I would recommend them for any real large boid. I'm sure to get a few if I ever have the money *sigh*

You could probably build one better then that and spend less money

Really hard to get in Canada but I got a chance to see some at the last show here and they looked fantastic - if I could afford them - pretty pricy even used. Very nice construction though. We are contenting ourselves with home-made racks and rubbermaids (so we can spend more money on the snakes).

Another great cage is made by <a href="http://aircapitalconstrictors.com/moonstruck.html">Moonstruck Cages</a>. Come with lockable doors and installed heat. I am not sure on shipping to Canada, but they great cages, and affordable for what you get as well.

We have one, and it is awesome.. a bit expensive, but for most people, building a cage that nice is not possible. The design is seamless, and very lightweight. I can pick a 4ft cage up and move it around with no trouble. The only beef I have with them is that they hold humidity a little too well.
We found some very nice cages very comparable to the boaphiles.. Moonstruck exotics..
We actually like these better because of the double doors. We have one now and 4 more on the way.. They are very nice people to deal with!

I agree these cages are great! Like the same thing as a biophile except maybe a little smaller and way cheaper.

Their 4 ft cages are exactly the same size as a boaphile. Right now we have it stacked on top and it fits perfectly. The price is $199 shipped.. not bad at all!

Personally, I'm probably buying some to be honest. I love those cages and have e-mailed them a bit to talk about shipping to Canada, etc. They're very friendly

Rubbermaid boxes are great.. But not so great when you have a 10ft+ boa.
If you seriously think the quality of one is like a rubbermaid, you have never seen one in person.

I've got a 322D Boaphile and it's great. The fit and finish are excellent. The new hardware is really sharp too. I needed a light weight, heated, large cage for my Taiwan beauty snake and it works like a charm. I'll probably buy a couple more for my BRBs as they get larger.
