Cages can be broadly divided into “wire cage type” and “water tank type”. The general wire mesh type can bite the mesh and cause problems with teeth and health, and can also drag limbs through the wire mesh. In addition, climbing can lead to a fall accident, so it is not really recommended.
The aquarium-type cage cannot chew or climb on the net, so hamsters can live safely without fear of injury. Even in the aquarium type, a lightweight, crack-resistant acrylic aquarium is recommended. It is easy to check the inside and it is also interesting to note the excellent thermal and acoustic insulation. However, in summer there is a disadvantage in the aquarium type, such as lack of breathability, smell and heat are stored, and pulleys and water supply stations are designed, so you will have to design this.
