Taconic Transit Cage
Product ID # 4014
like new transit cage is the ideal way to ship sugar gliders via
airline and is the only style shipping container we use here at
SunCoast. It has only been used once before and sterilized to
insure its safety and cleanliness. When using this cage, the
airline will ask what size it is, so you need to tell them that it is a
"50" cage and they will know what that means.
The cage is well designed to ship
sugar gliders as it is escape proof. Since sugar gliders are
nocturnal, we recommend that the shipping take place during the day
while they are asleep. We also recommend that you ship the
gliders in a nest box or sleeping pouch that they are already used to,
so they can just snuggle into something familiar while traveling.
These cages can be
stacked and fastened together to ship as a single unit. There are
small stacking legs on the top cover that will provide adequate airflow
to the critters in the bottom kennel. The containers also nest
for easy storage, and the smooth plastic surface is easily
cleaned. The top and both sides contain thousands of tiny
ventilation holes and are covered by a thin sheath of cloth. We
keep the sheath coverings on except on very hot days. The
covering provides additional protection from light, but we believe that
extra ventilation is helpful in summer months.
To use this kennel, line the bottom with aspen shavings, place the
animal and pouch in the kennel with a piece of fresh fruit for food and
hydration (we use apples) and secure the lid tightly. The lid
snaps firmly into place and there are two holes on one outer edge that
we additionally secure with nylon cable ties.
Not any type of carry cage or box will do when shipping with airlines.
The container must be airline approved or the carrier will not accept your shipment.
The Taconic Transit Cage is used
worldwide for shipping live animals by airline.
International shipping not available for
orders with Taconic Cages. USPS considers this an oversize
product so the cost to ship to a Post Office box is $48.
