New!

The MOOD cage is the latest new lab cage designed and manufactured by Small-Life Supplies for easy observation of flying insects. The MOOD cage is very robust and was developed in collaboration with current university researchers to address the practical needs of studying flies.

Great visibility through the sturdy grey polyester mesh.

Extra light enters the MOOD through the 2 clear side panels, made from rigid crystal clear plastic.

Safe restricted access via the soft extra fine white netting sleeve. This is extra long so it is easy to tie into a knot. The sleeve can be removed for cleaning.

Sturdy raised fixed floor, made from rigid crystal clear plastic.
