I don't know but would have thought that jungle equals moisture which wouldn't be suitable for hamsters.

Is it moist and what kind of wood is the bark from? It should say on the contents list

I would not use pine bark because hamsters are sensitive to pine. The only pine I have heard is safe is kiln dried pine.

Is uber a website? I have not heard of it. Do you have access to any paper bedding? I think that is brilliant for hamsters. It is safe and can hold their burrows.
