Default Re: A New Hamster

Robos love sand and roll around in it. They need it to keep their fur in condition as well.

As for wood, that's something i'd need to look up tbh. I'm a bit old fashioned and don't believe that wood shavings are harmful otherwise all my rescue hamsters of various ages would arrive with respiratory issues and they don't.

I don't even know what type of wood the houses are made of i use. I prefer smooth wood i can give a good scrub and plastikote if i want to and i avoid anything held together with nails or staples, woods that have a strong scent or anything scented really.

Sorry i can't be of any help with your question but i'm sure someone else will know.
