I picked up two Exoterras today for $100.
I got the 18x18x18"Cube ($40) - Pet shop charges $100+tax for a new one
And the 24x18x24" ($60) - I don't remember what the pet shop charges exactly for this one, but I think it is around$200.

The lids are in rough shape, and the tanks will need some cleaning. I have 5 gallon pail that is full of sand that needs disposing of too

One of the new Budgett's Frogs will be going in the 18" Cube, and my Snakes will be going in the bigger one. My snakes old cage is also an 18" Cube, so the other new Budgett's frog will be going in that old tank.

Nice. Why would these cost so much? For the first tank your paying about $7.50 per gallon that's crazy

Well, for two reasons:

1) I live in Canada, things are expensive here.

2) They're Exoterras.... Exoterras are more expensive then fish tanks.

I prefer using front opening enclosures. They are more convenient then fish tanks when it comes to my frogs and reptiles. I'd rather pay more for a product that I will be happier with using in the long run.

I love exoterras as well but don't love the price. Great find!

And the only things I have to say about regular tanks that have screen top lids is that the frogs usually can't jump out like they could out the front...but I still like the doors on those tanks...makes cleaning and decorating so much easier!

I usually find that my frogs try to jump "up" and out rather the forward to get out. I found this especially true with the tree frogs, and the American Bullfrog that I used to have.

So far the only frogs I've had trouble with trying to jump out of the exoterras was my FBT, and the Exos have two doors, so I have the option of opening just one to prevent them from trying to escape.
