Is there such a thing? Is there any particular reason why a cage couldn't be round?
 
only that i t probably wouldnt fit anywhere :D
 
True. My mother has a nice round dining room table at her house that is not being used, its just out in the garage and I was thinking i could bring it to my house and use it as a bse for my c&c cage I'm planning on making, lol, but then I was thinkin, hello its round you might now have as good suppport on the sides if I do that. So I wondered if I should just try and make it round. But I haven't seen that yet....
 
I'm not even sure how you would make one. Not with a coroplast base at least. If you want a round cage, and are creative enough to figure out how to build it to the right size, I don't see any reason why it wouldn't be fine. It would probably look awesome actually!
 
You can use one of those paddling pools. Some people use them. I'm not sure how big they are though, might not be big enough.
 
I had a round cage for a while. The coroplast tray was on the outside, with grids cable-tied together in a circle inside. It got reconstructed, however, because it wasn't very space efficient.
 
I'm not sure guinea pigs are the same (I expect they're smarter than this), but I know you can't put small rodents like hamsters in a round cage because they orient themselves with corners, and if you take the corners away, they can get REALLY stressed out 'n stuff. =P But like I said, I expect guinea pigs are smarter than this.
