    This was a macaw cage a friend of mine rescued from going to the land fill, a good cleaning and a new coat of paint and sealer a week to air out and we were good to go. My Ig, Iguardo absolutely loves it... Still working on it a bit by getting rid of all the wire sides and replacing them with glass.... and after he's a little healthier, I'll take out the divider... Total length is 7ft tall 7ft long and 3ft wide.

    What an awesome snag! That would've been a terrible shame to just toss.

    Oh yeah, that goes for big bucks. There was also an enclosure, 2.5 deep, by 6 wide by 8 tall with a full misting system, background, heat and light, 4 thermometers and cross branches for $2500. It was custom made. A bit pricey IMO, but someone must have bought it because i had offered them $1000 for it and never got a bite.

    Can't beat that price haha. My family makes fun of me for stuff like that because I always find a way of getting stuff on discount or for free. Nice enclosure though, lucky you got it.

    Haha I know the feeling, my boyfriend will come in from work and there will be 2 or 3 fish tanks with "free doesn't hold water" signs still on them (I'm a garage sale fanatic ) and he will look at me all weird and tease me for days about it..

    Now why would anyone pass up a fish tank just because it doesn't hold water! And even if you want to put water in it, you just pick up a tube of aquarium silicone! People are dumb.

    I haven't a clue, when I see a free doesn't hold water sign the boyfriend says my eyes light up like I've struck gold (he wants me to put in when I see herp supplies on clearance/sale too)

    People are dumb... I've been guilty of it I'm sure.... their loss not mine :)

    LOL I am the same way!
    Every time I drive down the street and see a big cabinet or piece of furniture I start thinking that I could make THAT into a snake cage!
    My lady just rolls her eyes at me!
    If not for her my yard would probably look like the junkyard on "Sanford and Son!":eek:
    Because we live in a "disposable" society.
    If it doesn't work, we throw it away and buy a new one!

    I know what you mean, I'll be in my basement doing laundry or helping my mom with something and I'll look at the "junk" down there and I'm like "O I could do this with that" and my mom just shakes her head, same thing with my girlfriend to lol
