Default Re: Cage Minimums

Previously it was 80x50cm in the UK (recommended by the RSPCA) but now they say this -Hamsters need a lot of room (especially at night), so buy as large a cage as you
can to provide your hamster(s) with suitable enrichment (such as small boxes
and tubes – for example inner cores from toilet rolls – and wooden chew blocks)
whilst still allowing generous space for your hamster(s).
Personally, I use 80x50 cm as a guideline and if my hamster shows signs of stress from a small cage I upgrade.
