Default cages for dwarf hamsters

Are the bars on the Savic hamster heaven too large for a robo hamster.

1cm spacing is generally ok for adult robos but it’s not really worth the risk with babies. You’d be best off with a tank/plastic cage or a lower cage with narrower spacing for babies. The Mickey 2XL with 7mm spacing is on amazon at the moment for 75 which isn’t bad, and is a little more suitable.

The hh has 9.5mm bar spacing which should be fine for any dwarf hamsters.

I currently have a dwarf hybrid in mine with no issues. A tank is your safest option as mangoandmimi points out.

I have had a few baby robos in 1cm spacing cages with no issues at all.

I have the Slavic mickey 2xl and love it - it’s great for a Robo with it’s narrow bars (7mm mouse bar spacing) and one of the few lower height cages to avoid fall risks. 75 is a good price for it - it’s usually about 86. It’s also fine for any species of hamster. It’s basically the hamster heaven with narrow bar spacing and different contents. The wire shelf needs to come out. It’s a well made sturdy cage as well. The Hh does have 1cm bar spacing I believe. As the others say it may be fine for an adult Robo but I’m a bit cautious and went with the 7mm bar spacing (initial reason was for a Syrian to make sure it was mouse proof when we had a mouse problem!

I have the Duna Multy (71x 46cm) for my Robo, it’s a tank tyle cage with bars only on the top. I believe the bar spacing is 7mm? I love it for my robo because he makes quite a lot of mess burrowing so I dont have to worry about substrate getting through the bars. Its currently only 43.99 on Porton Aquapet too!

The Duna Multy Maxi 99x51cm has the same bar spacing if you want a larger tank style cage.

I have used the duna multy too. And also a zoozone, the smaller one it's about the same size as the duna multy and easy to clean because it doesn't have the ridges on the bottom that duna cages have
