Need Info about Habitrail Safari Cage

Post by Emi » Sat, 02 Jun 2001 00:12:39



I was planning on getting a Habitrail Safari Cage for a dwarf hamster but am
wondering is I should reconsider.  Can a dwarf hamster escape from one?  Is
it flimsy like I read in some post below under questions about the Habitrail
wheel?  If it is substandard what else besides an aquarium would you experts
recommend.  Also are dwarf hamsters suppose to be kept in a pair (of the
same sex I don't want to breed) or alone like the syraian hamsters?

Thanks :O)

> My spouse and I have had good luck with the safari cage. You do need to be

careful when you open up the front of the cage. The  hinge is very cheap and
will break, also lift it from the bottom. We raise dwarfs and mated pairs do
well when introduced at a very young age.Or when at least one is a baby.Male
siblings do OK together if they never get a whiff of a fem.
You can always expect one to dominate.Especially if one is larger.
I hope I`ve been of some help

Regading the broken doors - just ask the store you purchased it from if they
can order in extra doors - they should be able to ask their rep to do a
special order - and if enough customers comment on that piece, you'll surely
find they'll have a few on hand just in case ;)
