Default Re: What kind of hamster will be content in 1000 sq. inch cage?

Another factor to consider is health.

Maybe i've been unlucky but i have lost a number of dwarf hamsters to various illnesses. They all had medical attention by hamster knowledgeable vets.

Two of my four male Syrians are over 2 years old and have never needed a vet. With a female hamster there's always the chance of gynea problems developing.

I can't think of anything that is not in favour of getting a male Syrian hamster. Thought i'd add this info in case you are undecided.
