*NEW*--- Dragonfly Perch Adapters
Dragonfly Perch Adapters
In a personal effort to provide my animals with better living conditions while balancing cleanliness, ergonomics, and aesthetics I’ve come up with some new perching options that my animals are taking full advantage. Because of this I am offering the same design so others can give their animals the same options.
Thinner branches than what most cage manufacturers provide will be utilized quite often if they are given the opportunity. Ever see adults perched on the thin wires used for radiant heat panels? It’s because they seek out very thin branches as it makes them feel more secure. It’s easy to anthropomorphize and think they would be more comfortable on a larger diameter perch because that is what you would like if you were them…right? But the reality is you should give them options to change up where they rest so you can avoid chronic issues due to bad ergonomics (such as only using large diameter perches over extended periods of time). I’m finding some of my animals use these thin branch extensions even when they are the lowest perching option in their enclosures. This typically goes against the thought that they will always choose the highest points....The male pictured uses this new perch almost everyday as his sleeping site. It’s the lowest spot in his cage.
In addition to the smaller diameter these are also set up to allow your animals to rest their bodies over several points at one time. They often will utilize this option when given the chance.
Will screw onto your existing perches (hardware is included). Must be used with bolt on perch holders only. Cannot be used with magnetic perch holders.
Comes in several color options (Black, Green, White, Brown, Blue)
Measures 12.8” from end to end with each branch being 6.3” long.
If you need or desire you can easily cut the “wings” of these perches shorter if you are tight for space or want to modify.
Note that all items are made to order. Typically most items will be completed and shipped within 7 to 14 days after ordering (usually less than that). If there is a considerable amount in the queue we will let you know the approximate wait time.
Not dishwasher safe. The high heat in a dishwasher will warp the plastic.
