Default Tips on Roborovski video

I thought this video was quite good if anyone was thinking of getting a Robo it makes me want one lol!

Although it's news to me that Carefresh is made from egg boxes

A little robo would go nicely into Charlie's old cage.

I love the video! Perfect! But you can introduce your hand to them and let them run up your sleeve I don't agree with forced taming or chasing the robo around to catch it!
Thanks for the video!

Rescues will advise no wood shavings usually. Generally because its easier than specifying no to a particular type (like scented shavings), because some people still use sawdust and call it shavings and also because many rescue animals have had health problems in the past and may be susceptible to allergies and dust.

I found the video when a US member was asking about different species of hamsters and pros and cons to keeping them

Michy - There are a few debatable points about it - particularly to do with bedding - I personally wouldn't use printed paper from a shredder! And the substrate could be deeper. But there are other paper beddings, alternative beddings and Carefresh. I think any bedding could have bugs in, but thankfully you don't hear of that often. I think it's true that hammy's can be allergic to any kind of wood substrate. Some are, some aren't.

As Ceretrea says there are quite a few threads on different substrate types if you look around on the site

This was a poll from last year that lists a lot of them and peoples suggested pros and cons

Substrate poll
