40-Gallon Palace for 1 Lucky Hamster

by wiffy on February 1, 2008

Featured Hamster Home

This is the first issue where we feature astonishingly creative and practical hamster homes.

The very first featured hamster home is HoppingHammy’s set up that is made up of TWO 20 gallons aquariums.

I think the photos speak for themselves. Creampuff (HoppingHammy’s hamster) is definitely living a high life in this splendid, luxurious set up. Please don’t let my own hamsters see these photos, or they’ll squeak protest!

Wooo! Thank you so much wiffy for allowing Creampuff’s mansion to be featured in this blog. I am so honored and hope it can give ideas for others to spoil their hamster too! :)

Hey great set up! Loving what you have done with the habitrail ovo bedsphere, now you can have modulars inside tanks! Great set up, creampuff is very lucky. I use plastic bin cages which work great too – just not as big as your setup!
