Default wheel

hello! I have just gotten a Chinese hamster. and I was wondering if a 9" wheel is big enough for him?

His name is Taco.

for chinese hamsters i would recommend an 10” - 12” because they’re very lengthy and smaller wheels will likely bend their back

I’ve had numerous Chinese Hamsters over the years and have usually found that an 8” wheel is fine for them so unless your hamster is particularly small and may struggle with a larger wheel, I think you should be fine with the 9” wheel that you have.

8 or 9” is fine, I use the 9” silent runner for all of mine but an 8” wheel is ok too, even my 5 week old baby can manage the 9’ silent runner so yours should be fine with a 9”.
