This is not just any ovo-age hamster home

Featured Hamster Home

For the second issue of “Featured Hamster Home” (a segment where we feature interesting and practical hamster homes), I am proud to present wezeles‘ Ovo Paradise.

Wezeles' Ovo Paradise

I admit that when I first saw the OVO on sale, I didn’t think it will provide adequate space or ventilation for hamsters. Of course, I was thinking cheap at that time, as I didn’t think of spending a tonne on buying lots of OVOs to connect (which I think, is the only way the OVO can be live-able as a main set up for hamsters). Well, wezeles has gone there and done it! And the end result is pretty awesome! Definitely worth considering for your dwarfs if you have the space and cash to spare =D

I couldn’t agree more with wezeles when he says that “… the OVO is better suited for small mice and dwarves than Syrians. It really imitates their natural home, though, with all the “underground” tunnels and dens….not to mention it just LOOKS so cool!”

“It would be way too cramped and ventilation would quickly become a problem for a larger animal (such as Syrian/European/rat-like hamsters). If your hamster is 5 inches or less they will love the burrow style home the OVO offers, anything larger than 5 inches will feel like an adult crammed in a McDonald’s play place.”

Main parts that make up wezeles’ hamster home:

- 1 Habitrail OVO Suite “OVO pad plus an OVO Adventure Pack in one box”
- 2 Habitrail OVO Mazes
- 2 Habitrail OVO Adventure Packs
- 1 Habitrial OVO Tower
- 3 mini Silent Spinners
- 1 Puzzle Playground
- 1 hamster potty

Estimated total cost:

I am awe of this OVO-wondefullness yet again, wezeles! What a cool looking setup, but also a great invention that OVO has made for the smaller members of the rodent family. I feel this is an ok addiction to have….I’m sure your 3 dwarf girls don’t mind it at all! ;) As long as you don’t buy out the entire stock and save some for the rest of us, it’s all good. :P

What another great home to add to this blog!

Thank you so much for the great article on my hamsters home.

Although it might not be suited for everyone’s pet, these are great cages!
Very easy to clean, a litte more difficult to put together compared to any other tube style cage “but thats because of how easy they make it to clean” lol, you get the knack for it fast.

For me its a fun, attractive, and addicting way to house my furry friends. It will keep growing until I run out of floor space for the cages, and even then I don’t think I will stop building upward and outword with the smaller pieces.

I always try to challenge myself to make all my pets homes as large and intresting for them as as possibal. I want them to be as happy living in there home as I am in mine.

Once again thank you for the review of my cage i greatly appreciate it.

That is a great setup! It must take forever to clean.

Not really about 20 minutes for the whole thing. Once you figure out the tricks to putting it together and taking it apart its pretty easy.

The cleaning part is simple because all the tubes and cages split in half. Then just dump it all in the sink or tub let it soak and dry off reconnect it and done.
