Hi Everybody,

Im new here and a new hammy owner! Mr Nibbles is his name lol

Basically ive been searching the net for an enclosed maze I can pop my hamster into outside his cage. No joy! Could anybody give some advice on how to make one and what to make it out of? Any pictures etc. Thanks in advance!

WhY don't you try looking at the tub cages that other people have made and then seeing how partitions would work?

Or I was thinking a big plastic box and make your own version of this ->


Dont forget air holes! :roll:

And bear in mind hammys can eat out of a card board box before you notice.

Pics when u are done?
