Looking for a giant terrarium fit for a Tegu lizard

I've made ample space in my room (6' by 6') for a terrarium for an Argentine Black and White Tegu. Does anyone know where I can find a cage with said side lengths?

You can do one of two things: make one yourself or you can order a custom cages from various places online.

There are several commercial reptile cages on the market... something like Vision Cages are large enough and quite nice. They are stackable, and have slots for lighting. Boaphiles are also pretty neat, and can be customized with lighting fixtures in them. No commercial cage option is going to be cheap though. You'd be looking at probably at least 300 dollars for something that size.

I build all my large cages out of plywood with Plexiglas doors. It's a lot cheaper - I built three 8x3 foot cages for the price of a single manufactured cage - but it also takes some carpentry skill, tools, and significant effort.

Wrapped in all of the promises, that no one seems to keep.

I would definitely construct one myself for an enclosure of that size. You are going to spend a lot on custom caging for something as large as a tegu. Make sure you post pics when you get one. They're gorgeous animals!
