Default Signs of being nervous, hamster heaven?

Hi,
my newest hamster came to me about 2 months ago ca. She do live in a terrarium but shows signs of being nervous. I`m thinking of buying a taming cage with bars, and the two I can choose between is hamster heaven and plaza knock down. The plaza is bigger then the terrarium so I`m not sure what to choose. Can it be easier for her to calm down in the hamster heaven?

My hamster was in the hamster heaven for 2 weeks and started showing stress behaviours so id probably move into one of the bigger options asap.

Holding off and getting him settled in one enclosure then moving again will probably also add to the stress/nerves

Okey, so plaza knock down then.

I have a hamster heaven so I can't comment on the Plaza but what I would say is good for a nervous hamster is a the large front door. Really helped me bond with Robin, a nervous little Syrian. I had him in my tank to start with but he really didn't like the hand from above or space above him but he's done much better having a cage with a large front door he can come up to but that I can also easily access the things in his cage too. So the large door is the main thing I'd look for on future cages.

Its very natural that they dont like the hand from above as they are prey animals
