With so many dwarf hamster cages for sale it's often bewildering but the main things to bear in mind are floor area, depth of base, security and price.
Dwarf hamsters, despite being smaller than other types of hamster, still need plenty of space in their cage. Dwarf hamsters are very dynamic movers and will scamper around at very high speed. Good sized cages provide plenty of room for them to run around freely with less risk of injury. Larger cages with room for toys naturally provide a more interesting and stimulating environment for your hamster to live in.
You'll find it very entertaining watching your pet playing, exploring and going about the normal day-to-day business of a hamster.
You'll get hours of entertainment just watching them burrow and play. Dwarf hamsters are great burrowers and cages with a deep base allow your hamster to indulge a natural instinct for burrowing. Essential for a happy dwarf hamster. And for anybody watching.
You'll find dwarf hamster cages in each of the 3 main cage designs: wire mesh, plastic modular, and glass cages, tanks and terrariums.
