Rated 5 out of 5 by sghksu Love this product
We have had this habitat for about a year. We have a Robo dwarf hamster. I don't understand the negative reviews. It would be impossible for a critter to get out unless the cage was not closed properly. I like the multiple levels. It's possible this would be somewhat small for a larger critter but works excellent for a hamster.

We have a robo dwarf hamster, and this habitat has more than enough room. For entertainment for my children, our hamster runs around the house in a hamster ball, giving her extra exercise. The habitat is Easy to see the hamster and easy to clean.
There are no cage wire type walls and wheels for hamsters to twist their little feet.
We have had no problems with this habitat.
I don't understand how others have had problems with it. I like this unit better than the other types with tubes. We've tried those with tubes, it's so hard to clean, pull apart and reassemble.

Rated 4 out of 5 by HappyMommy77 Fantastic for Dwarf Hamsters
I read many of the reviews on this product before posting mine and will say that I've owned large hamsters in my past and would not use this cage for them. They could likely escape and, it'd be a pretty snug fit.
That said, it is absolutely wonderful for a dwarf hamster. There is plenty of room to roam and play plus, with the base being as deep as it is, a lot of space to fill with bedding so they can burrow! The top half of the cage is easy to pull off, making cleaning unbelievably easy, and the entirely clear construction gives a great view of your hamster in their habitat. The little room at the top of the cage could be used by your hamster for a myriad of things and, with it's cover easily removed, it too is easy to get to in order to clean. In my case, my hamster has decided that is her solid waste room.
My only complaint, and I do mean only, is the fact that the wheel is pretty squeaky. A little coconut oil or some sort of safe lubricant could fix that quickly though.
Overall, after years of buying wire cages for larger hamsters, I am incredibly pleased with this one for our dwarf. I was worried she'd be able to easily fit through the bars of our typical cage so this was a good choice.

Rated 2 out of 5 by KananiCR My hamster hates this cage
I picked this one out as an extra cage for something different for my hamster; I am really disappointed with National geographic. This cage should only be used by a Syrian hamster or mouse maybe? But as others have mentioned it's easy to escape. I chose ours because my daughter's classroom had 2 Syrians in it and they seemed to love it- however I obviously wasn't there monitoring them long term. The wire lid doesn't fit the cage- I've had to put books on top to hold it down, the wheel is too small for a regular medium sized hamster; and unfortunately our hamster just hates being put in this cage.
