I wouldn't. I'm not entirely sure they couldn't chew their way out. The chip board would probably soak up urine and smell bad really fast. And I don't see how there would be any air circulation at all.

For that price you should be able to get a really nice rat/ferret cage

They can still chew out. And no air circulation. Which would suck. And you'd have a fun time cleaning it, I'd imagine o_o;

Yeah, you could get a good wire cage for that price, or lower even.

I *think* that website is South African, judging by the cities listed in their shipping examples. If so, the price is in Rands, not Dollars.

150 Rand = 22ish American dollars.

But yeah... that terrarium wouldn't work so well, due to the lack of ventilation.

I remember hearing once from a friend who was from South Africa that rats haven't really penetrated the pet market at all there, and so it's almost impossible to find a suitable cage or accessories for them there. Not sure if that's still the case, but good luck with your quest to find one!

Foxx, have you looked at any bird cages? If you found a large one it could be converted into a rat cage with a little tweaking
