Hi!

My opinion is that it depends on where you live! If you live in Florida or someplace where the humidity is always 80% you should be alright using a mesh cage. However, if you live in Colorado like me, or most of the country where the humidity doesn't stay high, then it is a bad idea. It is just too hard to keep the heat and humidity the right levels in that type of cage. Unless you keep the room it is in at the right levels and then you might as well give the dragon the room cause you won't want to hang out in there! :)

Seriously, the Apogee cages make AWESOME sunning cages to take your dragons and other critters outside, but for permenent enclosures my opinion is you are better off building one of your own that will be easier to maintain heat and humidity.

Good luck with you dragon!
Donna
