    There called horse throughts and if your lucky enough to live near ag land they are sold almost anywhere, lol. Locally i can find them at tractor supply and home depot. When i lived in San Diego i actully could find one but home deopt did offer to order one for me. Really any farm supply store or live stock shop will have them.

    If you're in the west coast, they should be easy to obtain. I built a 6x2x2 for 350, and 8x3x3s for 450 each. I find them to be the most economic caging there is for large lizards.

    You can read up on them here: http://www.proexotics.com/FAQ2.html#...monitorhousing

    A few pics of a 6x2x2.







    Animals: Too many.
