Good, but too small for Syrians!! The pic is fake.
on January 21, 2013
This cage is good, but overpriced. I paid $45 at PetCo when it's really worth more around $30/$35.
Structure: It's sturdy and easy to clean. The bottom plastic part is a good height, the bars are good for letting air in/out, and the clear lock top is great for all angle acess to the cage. The round edges are very easy to clean.
Accessories: The water thing doesn't work very well though, so I had to buy another attachable one. The blue thing (I think they call it a "treat tray") that hangs down with the tube is completely useless and only takes up room. The wheel is a good size and is pretty quiet as it spins, but sometimes my hamster runs too fast and shakes the whole thing, making a lot of noise. I also added a tissue box end for a house which takes up most of the open area, but also adds another level.
Size: The size of this cage is probably perfect for dwarf hamsters. My teddy bear/syrian hamster is a little too big for it, so I'll have to add on some connections with the available tube openings. The picture shown has a far too small hamster photoshopped in. My Syrian is about 5 months old and is a little shorter than the width of the wheel.
