The Marsh Designs Mouse Monitoring Cage is a scaled down version of our larger Rat Monitoring Cage. It measures 9 inches in
height. The floor measures 6 by 6 inches, giving ample room for a freely moving
adult mouse. The slide out lid has a 1 inch wide by 3 inch long slit to allow
unobstructed pass through of any tethered line, yet inhibits the rodent from
escaping. Seven 1 inch holes in the lid allow for adequate air exchange. The
bottom of the cage has seven 0.38 inch diameter dowels spaced 0.35 inches
apart. When the cage is lifted out of its tray, this patent pending design allows for
sufficient support for even the stoutest adult mouse, while allowing
soiled bedding to fall into the tray below.
