I'm not sure, I don't really understand the measurements.

The first one looks a lot like others I've seen, but the measurement for the bar spacing confuses me, lol. Also, I don't know what the "non-toxic coated texture" means, most safe cages I know say "powder coated". The other two cages I'm not sure of quality either.

If bar spacing on any of these cages are 1/2" or less and they are "powder coated" they would be safe. And any cage you get, use zip locks on any small access/feeding doors to prevent escapes.

cage 1 is the only one I would consider for bar spacing and size.
then I would buy a midwest critternation or other cage made for gliders.

Here in the UK, I guess our measurements are a bit different to the ones elsewhere. I have checked all of these cages for size, and here, they all meet the minimum requirement, and non-toxic coated texture, means that it is perfectly safe and is not harmful to your pet. There are some other cage options I have found, but I still need to do a lot of research and looking around. I want to find them the best possible cage I can get.

And in reply to the Congo Cage, no that kind of cage is not really an option for me. I am going to say that the shipping would be a lot, added to the price of the cage... I will just keep looking round! I found one a few days back that I liked, (was over minimum - I think it was 100 and something cm high - with the correct bar spacing, suitable doors etc) just need to remember where I found it, and compare it too the other ones I have found!

Thank you for your input however, I only want to give my new babies, the best possible life I can give them!

out of the congo, brisbane and madagascar, I would go with the congo first. the brisbane I have and I think is small, with small doors.

the congo is almost the same as midwest critternation so that is a nice size.
the madagascar would be an option if I wanted less floor space to the gliders and more for me, smaller footprint but tall.
 Look what I found on Ebay
