The Shark Cage is a members-only den item.


The Shark Cage appears to be a shark cage like the ones used by scuba divers to safely observe sharks. It consists of a rectangular frame made from a wooden lattice, two rounded ballasts attached to the sides of the frame, a metal support attached to the top of the frame, and four lights attached to each corner of the metal support. The bottom corner of the wooden lattice frame has a shark-like bite mark where a section of wood is missing. This item comes in 9 different variants.

  • On its second release in 2012, the Shark Cage could only be purchased through the underwater version of the Pet Den Item Shop. This could be accessed by entering an underwater area, opening the Change Your Look interface, and clicking the "Pet Shop" button in the My Pets menu. This release seemed to be an accident as the shop was expected to list the same items found at the land version of the Pet Den Item Shop in Claws 'N Paws.
  • Shortly later, the "Pet Shop" button was removed from the underwater My Pets menu, preventing Jammers from accessing the underwater Pet Den Item Shop and purchasing the Shark Cage through normal means. However, the item was never removed from the shop.
  • A glitch was found in January 2016 that enabled players to buy Shark Cages via the Pet Den Item Shop. This could be achieved by entering another room while the My Pets menu in the Change Your Look interface was open. Doing this removed the backdrop of the My Pets menu, allowing the player to enter an underwater area and click the "Pet Shop" button to open the underwater Pet Den Item Shop. This glitch was later patched on January 14, 2016.


  • This item was originally sold for only 350 Gems on its first release, but the price was later increased.
