495 cage from Prevue HendryxAvailable in a dark red, hammertone finish, the #495 Small Animal Cage from Prevue Hendryx features small wire spacing and solid metal ramps and platforms that make it an ideal cage for rats and chinchillas, as well as baby ferrets. The cage measures 31 inches long by 20.5 inches wide by 40 inches high (the interior cage height is 28.25 inches). It has 3/8 inch wire spacing. The large front door and smaller rooftop door allow for easy access to pets. The pull-out bottom grille and tray make cleaning quick and easy. The wind-bell lock, on the bottom of the cage, prevents pets from pushing out the tray if the cage is used without the grille. A bottom shelf is also included for storing extra food, treats and supplies.

This cage claims to have a door on top, but mine does not. Yes, it is a new chinchill/rat #495 prevue hendryx cage. It is the same as the picture but no door on top. Also, several of the bar welds were broken on mine when I received it. Still functional with the broken bars just annoying. I purchased it new, still in the box and unassembled. Discovered the broken welds when assembling. also, some of the bars were slightly bent and I had to use a pliers to straighten one enough that needed to be inserted into the frame for assembly. Other then these flaws, I like the cage. It s heavey duty, love the solid shelves and ramp. I wish it had a metal tray. The tray is plastic and thin and lightweight. It remains to be seen if the chinchilla can find a way to chew it and destroy it. I chose not to use the metal grille that covers the tray because the bars while 1/2 inch spaced, have very few cross bars and still a foot hazard. I wish that the grille was 1/2 inch squares which would be safe for chin feet. As it is, the foot can slip between the bars so the grille is not useable and this is why the flimsy plastic tray which jiggles when the animal runs is going to be an issue for solidness and chewing issues. Also which the tray were a few inches deeper so the litter wouldn't get kicked out of the cage when not using the grille.
