Poo Poo Platter for Easy Cage Cleaning

The poo poo platter is a plastic insert that fits perfectly on the floor of your baby cube or tall baby butterfly cage.

  • 14" platter fits perfectly inside the baby cube and tall baby cage
  • Gives baby cube and tall baby cage a solid floor so they can be carried around without spilling cuttings containers inside
  • Two 14" Platters will fit inside the big cube & monarch tower but won't cover the entire floor (click on third photo) so instead we suggest using a low-power handheld vacuum
  • Bend sides slightly toward the center to insert or remove platter
  • Remove insert (filled with caterpillar frass/poop) and dump in garbage.
  • Rinse out, dry, and put back in the cage
  • Set milkweed cutting containers or leaves on platter

Poo Poo Platter vs thick bedding of paper towels

i used the Poo Poo Platter till a monarch started to make its chrysalis on the lip. I removed him although I know that is a big No No. He climbed half way up the seam in the 24-inch tall mesh cage and made a pupa. I hope I didn't damage him fatally. Am a rank newbie and don't feel competent to move a crysalid so removed platter rather than take a chance on moving it twice a day for cage cleaning with a crysalid attached. I am using a thick bed of white paper towels which I change twice per day.

Hi Blanche, it's a lot less risky to let them form the chrysalis first, let it harden, and then remove and rehang OR leave on the cage floor. More info on our chrysalis page. there is no need to use all those paper towels. See this page for reference: https://monarch-butterfly-shop.helpscoutdocs.com/article/120-caterpillar-forms-chrysalis-on-poo-poo-platter
Makes cleaning easier

Fit perfectly and should last a couple of seasons. I hope you make an oval one for times when use tent on its side for baby cats. (First-third I star)

Easy does it

Fits perfectly.... works wonders

Great butterfly setup.

Other folks I showed it to love it.

The butterfly habitat and poo

The butterfly habitat and poo platter arrived in good condition and I set them up and have small milkweed in the habitat. I don't yet have any caterpillars, so can't say if they like it or not., but it looks nice and I'm optimistic.
