    Hi, I saw the same cage at petsmart. I looked at my mom and
    said "If that were a bird cage, it would be closer to $400-700 (in
    a pet store). It looks just like one." It's outrageous the way
    anything that's for parrots doubles in price than the same item
    for and other animal. I see dog toys and bird toys that are the
    same with very different prices.
