Question Names of water bottles with long spouts?

I just bought a Zoo Zone 2 second hand but cant find a water bottle with a spout long enough for it. It as a hole in the lid unlike most Zoo Zones and none of my bottles seem to fit right.

Trixie and Superpet both do glass bottles with long water spouts. I used a normal Classic Hamster bottle and put a little platform in for the hams to reach the spout

Living World make a glass bottle with a longish spout but I think your best bet would be either to make/buy a little platform with a ramp up to it for the right height or use something to block up the hole and try a freestanding bottle holder.

Glass would be too heavy without the living world stand as I'm using suction cups to secure the bottle so I'd prefer a plastic bottle for now. If I can't find one I'll get the living world bottle and stand.

Or you could block the hole and have a bottle on a stand in the cage maybe. That hole does look rather large and I'm wondering if it has been chewed larger! You often hear of hams chewing at the water bottle hole in these cages as a way of trying to escape! You can make a water bottle stand from a small mineral water bottle. Cut the top off where it curves in so you have a straight sided bottle, open at the top. Fill the base with some stones so it stays upright and make a hole in the side for the hamster bottle nozzle to stick out of.

There are some more ideas here (upturned cup eg)
