Cages are placeable decorative furniture items that display Critter. A Critter caught with the Bug Net is combined with the Terrarium to craft a Cage. Cages resemble aquariums with animated Critters inside.
Gold Cages are regular Cages containing Gold Critters. They sell for 10 . Aside from the sell price, they are the same as regular Cages.
Cages exist as background furniture, and nothing can be placed on them, nor can they be placed on top of each other. All Cages measure either 6 tiles wide by 3 high, or 3 tiles wide by 2 high, and are partially transparent. Cages cannot be opened, broken, or un-crafted, so once a Critter is crafted into a Cage, that particular Critter can no longer be released.

Tips[edit | edit source]
- Gold animals inside terrariums sell for the same price as without one, so it may be desirable to sell the animal without a terrarium.
- Some animals that have a sell price have no value when placed in a terrarium.
Notes[edit | edit source]
- Instead of the Terrarium, Butterflies, Fireflies, and Lightning Bugs must be combined with a Bottle to create bottled variants. Bottled Water can be combined with Goldfish to make a Fishbowl, or with fished jellyfish to make Jellyfish Jars. Light-providing insects in bottles can be used as valid light sources for housing.
- On the map, when hovered over with the mouse, the Red Squirrel Cage displays the text "Orange Squirrel Cage".
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- The Penguin's sprite in the Penguin Cage resembles the Baby Penguin, rather than the Penguin used to craft it. This may be due to resolution constraints, which would make it difficult to draw a proper Penguin inside the cage's borders.
- The game's name, Terraria, is a plural form of the word “terrarium”.
