Qustion?
I am making a sliding door for my BD enclosure.

Plexi glass is going to be easier to find and easy to cut yourself. Glass is hard to find and even harder to find some one to cut it.

I would say plexi normally, but for lizards that like to scratch I would suggest glass. I know of a few glass shops around and if you have an ace hardware by you they have glass and will cut you any size you need. If you want 1/4 inch stuff I can name off some places to go

I would definately go with glass if you are making a cage that you would like to look nice for a long period of time. The plexi will scratch big time w/ bd nails. Plexi is a cheaper/easier alternative but i think the glass is worth it.

Thanks for the info. I am back to the drawing board though. I priced glass and they want $236.00 I think I need to redesign the size to make this a little more affordable... or find some less expensive glass.

Thank you!

Holy crap! I've built multi-cage units with glass doors and never paid that much. How big is the cage you're building?
