Dude, can you PLEASE upload a 20+ minute video of your hammy exploring the place? Please? I love these cage-making videos but I really wanna see the hamster explore the thing!!! Also, are you willing to share how much this entire set up cost? I'm curious

How can you set this whole thing up, and not let us see the hamster running around in there? I watched the whole video anticipating seeing a little hamster exploring its new home. Only to be let down. It’s like watching a really good movie that abruptly stops with out an ending. And Thank you everyone I eventually did get to see it.

Teen Loser Well if I offended, I deeply apologize. We were only commenting on how wonderful of a job she did and it would’ve been nice to see the hamster appreciating it. That was all it was. And now we’ve all seen it over and done with.

I just want to say, I've been studying habitat design and this habitat looks absolutely perfect for an animal like a hamster. I know hamsters in traditional cages often suffer from stress and boredom, but with all the things you put in there for him to play with and explore, I'm sure he'll be really happy. And most of it looks handmade too. I love that amount of commitment for a pet most people wouldn't spend more than $30 on. It really shows that you love them.

The multi chamber hide is best utilised in an area with loads of substrate but thats the only problem (if u could even call it that) about this setup.

dank bird I see where you’re coming from and I didn’t dislike the video either but I personally didn’t like this design because it would be hard to spot clean this cage because the poop could blend in

@dreamturtle12 those plants are completely harmless I promise you. Your worries are ok and respected. My aunt owns a floral/garden shop type thing and people like to come in and buy those sometimes for display, i should know I work there. I may be completely wrong and getting two different species mixed up but if she does her research and all you shouldn't worry to much! Hope this helps you and your worries 😊❤

• Jade’s gacha studio • It’s gotten so tiring to constantly watch topics that aren’t actually about whatever the videos are supposed to be about because the people would rather talk over whatever’s going on and all the while they don’t even talk about informational stuff/what the actual video is supposed to be about, while being super ADD/ADHD and very self-absorbed while trying to make lame pre-planned jokes on top of lots of advertising🤷🏻‍♀️

Ooh! I never would've thought to make a naturalistic vivarium for a mammal, but it makes perfect sense to do so! Adding a false bottom/drainage layer will help keep humidity stable and keep the substrate from molding. Also, if you add springtails and isopods to the setup, it'll help keep the enclosure clean and help clean up the hamster poop! Live plants are great for keeping ammonia out of the substrate.

Stubeii Yıl önce
Chazzeroonio I can’t tell if it’s the enclosure or the cage you’re talking about but I’ll give you some tips on both! If you want a large but cheap cage try a bin cage or if you can maybe a IKEA detolf which is a little more expensive than a bin you can get at Walmart but it’s around 950sq inches of floor space and is only $70!As for toys and other stuff try paper bedding it’s very cheap and can last such a long time! It looks very nice too! Also if you have any trees or something that you know don’t have any weird chemicals added to them, then cut off a branch or something and sanitize it by putting it in the oven this works for rocks too (you can also bleach them) I got most of my toys from thrift stores and I also made some of them myself! That’s all the advice I could give haha
