About Hamsters

Hamster Cages

Because Syrian hamsters are such escape artists, I recommend a strong cage that they can’t chew through or push their way through. I like to use terrariums (glass or acrylic tanks with wire mesh tops) but they need to be set up so the hamster can’t climb to the top and push or chew a hole in the screen. It is best to use a tall enough tank, such as a 20 gallon long, or 30 gallon, and make sure they can’t climb the water bottle or toys, hideouts or wheels and reach the top.

Another better way to solve the escape problem is to use wire mesh tank toppers. They give the animal twice the floor space, makes it easier to feed and water them, and is very secure! If one escapes now, change their name to Houdini!

Kids love the Crittertrail multi level cages because of the tubes and multiple climbing levels, but these are too small and difficult to clean. They are way below the ideal cage size of 600 sq inches of uninterrupted floor space. A cage should never go below 400 sq inches of uninterrupted floor space, this does not count platforms. An example of a solid cage which meets the 600 sq in is the Prevue 528 Universal Cage. It is a very large and sell built cage.
