Syrians Are TOO Smart!
This is an effective tool to create variety in play time outside of their cages, however, Syrian Hamsters, who aren't even full grown yet, manage to figure out how to hop the fence in under 10 minutes of being introduced to their new playpen! I would highly recommend this for smaller breeds of hamsters, gerbils, or even mice... but Syrians?? Only as toddlers. Meanwhile, don't know what to suggest when it comes to getting it back into its storage box, but it DOES turn itself into an odd metal puzzle... lol
ProsExcellent play space for smaller breeds of Hamsters, gerbils, and mice
ConsOnce your sweet ball of fur figures out how to maneuver the bars, they're hurling themselves "over the wall" and escaping... because OBVIOUSLY, fear is NOT A FACTOR for them :) You then have a $10 playground that won't neatly fit back into its box to be donated to your local pet rescue.
