Default Is this a good cage?

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Carlos-Mous...e+hams&sr=8-72

So Iíve been looking for a new hamster cage for awhile now and Iíve found so pretty interesting ones, Iíve never seen a cage like this and it looks great, one of the only multi level cages Iíve found that is big enough. Is there anything wrong with it and would it make a good cage?

Apart from building a DIY cage this is my dream hamster cage. I think hamster cages are preferred by many to be on one level, but even one level is 100 x 50 cm or something like that, if i remember rightly and the bases are quite deep I think with the shelves covering the whole floor area. The only thing that put me off this cage in the end is that you would have 3 levels to clean and I am too ill to be doing that, but it may be fine for you.

It’s very expensive for a cage with the length of 98cm. You would have to attach something to the ramps as the wood would be a slipping hazard. I’m looking at the trays on each level and to be honest this cage goes against the natural instincts of a hamster. A hamster creates a nest in the wild then burrows tunnels to house its food and a place to pee. The tunnels can stem as long as 200cm. Burrowing underground is a safe place for your hamster. Us humans provide nesting boxes/house submerged in bedding with a dug out entrance so that our hamsters feels safe. Your poor little hamster might suffer trauma because his burrowing area is broken up into areas where he is potential prey. If you are willing to spend money on a cage go for something with a deep base to submerge your nesting box in and a good length so that your hamster can imitate running along the ground like they do in the wild. Hamsters aren’t built to climb trees really...I’m sure they could but they would be easy prey.

That cage looks more like a gerbil cage to me.

I would be worried that my hamster would fall down from the top level. Well, my hamster would. I've seen him lose his footing before because he was busy sniffing the air rather than concentrate on where he was going.

Have you looked at the Eco Habitat enclosures or a Barney or Alexander cage (Zooplus) if you want a wire cage?

Reading reviews online, what other people have done to adapt it is to block the gap off a bit more above each ladder, just to be on the safe side. You could also stick lollypop sticks on the ladder or something similar for better grip. I think the way it is designed, a hamster can't fall all the way to the bottom from the top. I would also be looking at putting something on the sides so I can add more substrate. I still think it is a good cage(unless others can tell me why they don't think so, I'm open to changing my mind!) if you 1.) don't have the floor space to go bigger and 2.) unable to build a DIY cage and 3.) Have the money to buy something like this.
