Default Re: Queries about getting a Chinese hamster

Chinese hamsters make lovely pets but they are quite shy. They like to have places to hide and lots of boxes and tunnels to move through. They need reasonable sized equipment though not as huge as syrians and not as small as robos might use. I don't find they like wired cages but prefer the tank type like the Duna Multy. None of mine have got through the bars in those as they are nice and narrow and on;y on the roof. They don't like wide open spaces or open sides like glass tanks I have found.
They are very prone to diabetes so avoiding sweet foods is essential.
