tree shrew housing
Simple, safe and secure housing
for even the shrew-dest of shrews
To say tree shrews are “fast” is putting it mildly.
When it comes to housing these zippy Group 1 primates, simple, safe and secure design is key. Our tree shrew housing is all of the above, with the added bonus of ergonomic, easy-to-use features and options for feeding, transferring, and more.
Our base design—in your choice of stainless steel or vinyl-wrapped wire mesh—is a classic 1-over-1 configuration with 3.33 sq.ft. of floor space. Set it up as two units (upper and lower), or remove the center pan and floor to convert your tree shrew housing into one full-height, climbing-friendly unit.
Plus, thanks to our state-of-the-art engineering system, we can customize your tree shrew housing in a heartbeat. Bigger? Smaller? Deeper? Different front door features? If you have an idea, we have a way to make it happen. Just ask!
FULL-ACCESS SWING DOOR
Easy in, easy out, for times you need ample access to the whole housing unit.
SMALL ACCESS DOORS
Efficient access for daily husbandry needs.
Feeding in its most efficient form.
STAINLESS STEEL OR VINYL-WRAPPED WIRE MESH CONSTRUCTION
Both options are incredibly durable and easy to sanitize.
NEST TUBE / TRANSFER TUNNEL
Close off the end to create a cozy nesting tube, or use to bring tree shrews in/out of the housing as needed for cleaning and other transfers.
Take your tree shrews’ resting and exploration to new heights—literally.

Animal care staff always appreciate this ergonomic feature!
TUBE- OR BOX-STYLE NESTING BOXES
