What type of cage do i need for my hamster?

people choose a glass aquarium where you can watch the antics of your little pet; it keeps him safe and draft-free and provides a temperature controlled environment. Be sure you provide a wire lid for the top of the aquarium with a heavy object on top to prevent escapes. 

Another cage option is the wire cage with plastic which is the cheapest option. The foundation of this unit is plastic with wire and should have available doors to fit your hand in and feed your hamster as well as remove it for cleaning of the cage. 

A plastic tube habitat is another fun cage idea for your hamster. This is a little more expensive and difficult to clean. But it provides tubes and tunnels for your hamster’s fitness level as well as your pleasure in watching your pet in play.
