Default NiteAngel Bigger World

I just realized that I didn't see a NiteAngel Bigger World cage review on here and since I have 3 of them, I thought I would do a write up on it.

It comes in 3 sizes (inner dimensions):

Small: 30L x 15W x 17.7H inches (450sq in of floor space)
Medium: 39.4L x 19.7W x 19.7H inches (776sq in of floor space)
Large: 47.2 L x 19.7W x 23.6H inches (930sq in of floor space)

I think you could get away with a small or a medium with a dwarf hamster, the medium for a less picky Syrian, and the large is just awesome for everyone. Not saying you couldn't have a dwarf in a large, just talking minimums and budgets.

Concerns people have:

First, it's too flimsy. This is both true and not true. The individual pieces are very light weight and yes, you could potentially break a piece off if you dropped it the wrong way. However, once this cage is built, it is structurally. sound. The pieces are interlocking like a puzzle so they gain strength from each other. The silicone bands are really just there to hold it together while it's being built and being moved. I don't recommend you move this cage often, without taking it apart.

Second, the rubber bands will break. While you are learning to put them on correctly, yes, they can break. My suggestion is hook them from the top down and pull down to the bottom. NiteAngel gives you a lot of bands to learn with. I have so many bands I don't need now lol and the last two cages I built, I didn't even break one band. You can also easily order replacement bands if you needed. These bands are pretty much perfect replacements and even are slightly bigger so easier to put on if you run out. Which I doubt you would.

Amazon.com

Third, that a hamster could chew out of the cage. I have had two females (both of whom like to chew on things to escape) in a NiteAngel cage and neither one as so much as a scratch mark or a nibble. The sides are very smooth, it would be very hard for them to get their teeth ahold of something.

Positives:

The large size is the biggest non DIY cage in North America, even the medium is bigger than most commercial cages. Also, they are the same dimensions from bottom to top so you get all the space. You can fill the large up a good 10-12 inches and still have room on top for wheels and cork logs etc.

It looks good. People have commented on the look my my cages so many times. I even had one in my living room and it didn't look weird and out of place.

It's so spacious that even my two female Syrians are happy in them. Not saying your mileage might not very but it's a big relief to me to not have to upgrade. It's the first cage, I've had where I didn't feel like I had to choose between bedding depth and having a good sized wheel.

The lid has nice slits for ventilation, I don't have any issues with condensation, smells getting trapped, etc.

Personally, I think the positives outweigh the negatives. They really have suited my hamsters and I don't have hammies going crazy wall climbing all the time and making me stressed with worry about them.

Feel free to ask any questions or post any concerns, I'm happy to answer! I don't currently have a NiteAngel Vista, which is similar, but if I do get one, I'll post a review!

Thank you for the review. I googled NiteAngel Bigger World cage. It looks really good. I just have a question. How many hamsters can live in the cage at the same time?

I wouldn't recommend keeping more than one hamster in any cage. Unless you are keeping two dwarf hamsters and have experience with them.

Syrians and Chinese hamsters are solitary. Never keep them together.

Russian Campbell's, Winter whites, and Robovorskis can sometimes be kept in pairs but unless you have two of everything, two wheels, two water bottles, lots and lots of hides, they can fight at any time and seriously hurt each other. The only way I would keep a pair is from a breeder who could tell me which of the littermates got along and never chased by each other away from food etc. To have the best chance of success.

In the wild if a hamster doesn't like another hamster they can move and not get in each other's way. In captivity, it heavily depends on the personality of the hamsters to make sure they can get along. They can't get away from each other.

It's cheaper to have two cages than to pay for the vet bills if you get it wrong. Others may have different experiences but unless you have two cages ready to go in case of fighting, I wouldn't even attempt it.

As an aside, these are fantastic cages and I hope you continue to do research on the best hamster for you. They are wonderful pets!

Thank you for this - there are very few large enough cages easily availavble in the US. How much does it cost? Like most of the Niteangel stuff it seems almost identical to the Rodipet stuff in Europe so I'm guessing there is an affiliation. The Rodipet cage looks exactly the same but is humongously expensive!

Comes in 100 x 50 or 120 x 50

Prices in Euros but equivalent is 166 for the 100cm and 192 for the 120cm

Or $225 and $260

The prices have gone up due to shortages but currently the prices in US dollars:

Small: $170
Medium: $200
Large: $230

About the same then. Is that cheaper or more expensive than a glass tank? Although a tank is much heavier of course and less flexible.

I would say that if you get a used tank, it's cheaper but brand new the aquariums are more expensive per square inch. Plus tanks are really meant for observing fish so their dimensions are not ideal for hamsters, imo.

Having an aquarium myself, I never liked how heavy they were and they were longer but less wide. I think I prefer the wider dimensions of the Nite Angel cages.
