Default New hammy housing advice needed

Hi everyone,

Looking for some housing advice for my ham! I've had my female Syrian hamster, Penelope for a few months now. I upgraded her from a pets at home XL cage to a bigger bin cage a couple months ago however I know she could still do with more room and also height so I can give her more substrate. She is a very active hamster and an OBSESSIVE bar chewer so cannot have bars. Also, as a uni student it needs to be semi-practical for travel ie. not super heavy or hard to move around (I know this is not an ideal living situation for her). If I were living at home I wouldn't hesitate to get her a detolf but due to my circumstances, I can't.

I've looked at upgrading her to a larger bin cage but I can't find a storage box being sold in the UK that is large enough. The only cage I've found that may be suitable is the ferplast large maxi duna- https://www.amazon.co.uk/Ferplast-Ma...c=1&th=1&psc=1

If anyone has any opinions/ experience on this cage they are very much welcome as well as any other suggestions for other cages.

Thanks very much!

Hi have you thought of the zoozone 2 (large)

I include it in this list

UK Hamster Cages 2021

The lid will need meshing. But even pricing that up may be cheaper than the duna multy.

Also I list the really useful box on wheels which is also 100 x50 cm too

The 145l really useful box from Wickes is the only other box suitable for a bin cage conversion i can think of. It doesn't have wheels but can be lifted by handles.

Thank you both for your replies. I don't know why I thought that the zoozone had built in features for rabbits/guineas but now I know you can take them out it sounds perfect. I just had a quick look and managed to find a zoozone 2 on Facebook marketplace for 40 with mesh already installed and only up the road from me so am going to collect that later. Hopefully Penny likes it! Will post a pic when I get it all set up.
