Default robo questions

hello,

I'm considering getting a robo hamster as my next hamster (whenever I get one), so I have some questions as I've never owned one before

for the cage - will a barred cage be OK? I have a Barney cage which is 700+ sq in (can't remember exactly, but I know it's over 700) which has 7mm bar spacing - will this be OK for a robo? cause they're so small I wouldn't want them to try and squeeze their way out and escape or get stuck. if the bars are too risky I do have a bin cage I could use but it's only 600 sq in and obviously bigger is better

and for taming - are they harder to tame than a Russian or a syrian? I've heard they can be skittish and more difficult, but I'm not sure how true this is. I know they're less likely to be cuddly which I have no issue with as neither of my previous hamsters wanted to sit with me and snuggle (they were fine running up and down my legs and climbing on me, they just didn't like being held all that much, my syrian in particular) but I wouldn't want them to be scared of movement or me cause I wouldn't want to stress them out

sorry if these are questions that have been answered a thousand times before, I just wanna be sure :)

Posted about this on your other thread . The Barney would be ideal - IF you put a full level in it (ie split the height in two. Lots of floorspace then. They are great to watch and talk to- out more than Syrians. Hard to tame and handle - and they can get quite stressed trying. Left ours in his cage mostly but he had a good sized cage.

Thank you, I'll go read and reply on the other thread :)
