Wait you have to seal plywood! Me and my dad built a cage with plywood (which took forever) and we only sealed the cracks and stuff like that.

Ideally.
But I've seen a few breeders who don't either.

I've not seen any scientific proof, but the theory is that the adhesives holding the sheets together could potentially off gas, especially in a heated environment.
And also that pine is toxic to dragons (in what dose/ duration who knows) and since plywood is typically made from pine sheets, it makes sense to seal.

Sealing it can also help provide protection against moisture and extend the life of the enclosure.

Another possible benefit is inhibition of mold and fungal growth over time.
