Here is a page to show off some of our favorite hamster habitats! Majority of our hamsters come from situations where they were housed in habitats that were too small - Education is a key part of our hamster adoption program. We house hamsters in a minimum of 600 square inches and we require that adopters do the same - which is why we have the option to purchase fully equipped, pre-made 620 -800 square inch bins from us.
These habitats are filled with a variety of hides and chews, the brand most heavily used for hides/wheels/platforms is Niteangel (found on Amazon), there are a variety of stores on Etsy that sell hamster-specific treats and hides. Cork logs or "rounds" can be found on Chewy. All of the bedding used is a paper based bedding, and we recommend anywhere from 6-8 inches for room to burrow. See our Hamster Care page for more info.
Some of these habitats were sent in from adopters, or fosters that like to go all out for their foster hams! These are listed in order of least expensive to most,
We sell these size bins for $70 they come fully equipped with 4-6 inches of bedding ($20), a wheel (roughly around $12), sand bath & sand ($10), water bottle ($6), usually at least a cork log ($8) and any other hides/toys they are currently using. The bin itself is $35, additional mesh and supplies is an additional cost - but each bin has around or close to $100 worth of supplies and it provides about 4x the space of your traditional store bought cage that is around $40. We also have bins that are 850 square inches.
These aquariums are normally around $150 - $200 at pet stores but can cost less depending on sales! Generally you'll want to look for 75 gallon ones or larger.
The Niteangel hamster habitats are the most expensive but are an attractive option. They are around $240-$299 and both the medium and the large are big enough for hamsters of either species. They can be found on Amazon. This adopter did purchase more bedding after this picture was taken in order to fill it more thoroughly so that Snorlax would have room to burrow!
