Default Big cages?

Hey all.
Havent been on here for 3 years, after my last hamster passed away I didnt get another. Thinking about it now, are there any new big cages out there?

I had a hamster heaven which I found a bit too small, then I had an alexander from zooplus but I found it really fiddley and irritating, but size wise it was excellent.

Anything new on the market?

There's not really much new on the market that I'm aware of which is significantly larger than the standard 80 cm x 50 cm However,you could modify various cages on the market to make a larger cage with direct connections,or a meshed square meter rabbit cage would be another potential idea(just proceed with caution as with any DIY project!).

Indoor Square Cage Rabbit & Guinea Pig by Little Friends - Little Pet Warehouse This one could be meshed over for a square meter cage example.

Another alternative would be a double Detolf with a raised lid.Essentially two Detolf units are sealed together,giving twice the floor space(over a square meter,and if done width wise making it more Syrian friendly compared to the single Detolf).Other Ikea hacks can be done similarly using more units than the standard version to achieve a larger floor space,plus unlike wire cages or aquariums they can be expanded if your hamster shows negative behavior(like pacing,chewing,corner digging,leaping,etc).Bin cages can be done in a similar way as well,just to have that extra option out there!

The Savic plaza is a good size & a really nice cage.
I think that's about the only new cage for a while now.

I was just going to say the Savic Plaza, but Cypher beat me to it. It really is a great cage.

I did a review of it here:

Zooplus do a good range of big cages. I find the barney and alexander a bit of a pain to clean. The living world eco habitat ones look good. Pricey though.

I love the maxi duna multy but it is very expensive.
