Rated 3 out of 5 by animallover2229 Okay but...
So I had gotten the Nat Geo small exploration loft for my first hamster, and I think it's ten times better than this. Even though this cage is larger, once you put a larger wheel in there (because the wheel in the cage is complete junk) there is almost no more room for anything else. The glass water bottle, which I had high hopes for, leaked everywhere the first night I got the cage. I had to situate it in a completely different place in the cage. Finally, I thought the bar sizing's were great until I realized the bar spacing of my cage, on one side, was about 3/4 of an inch (which is pretty big, since normally they are 1/2 inch or less) and my hamster discovered that bar spacing, and now won't leave it alone. Otherwise the cage is okay. The plastic levels are well made, along with the nice bowl. The wood bridges really don't fit in with the theme but work anyway. I would probably not buy again.

The unique peanut-dome design is quite visually appealing. Comes with an adorable bridge which I would use in a different habitat. Nice levels. But size, really!?
This cage is marketed towards Syrians, Gerbils, Dwarfs, and other small furry friends but it doesn't meet the USA minimum standard. It isn't 360 in (squared)!!!!!
I would expect so much better from such a great company like NatGeo. I mean I love their small animal chews and toys. However, not their cages. The only reason I would ever buy a cage like this is for TRAVELING. It is the perfect travel cage without the wheel, because the wheel is far too small for SYrians and could pose potential back problems. Definantely a great travel cage, five stars for that. But when marketed as a permanent home for your furry friend, sadly a one star!

Rated 4 out of 5 by dch75 Get it while its on sale
I like it. Lots of space for a hamster. Not just for dwarf hamsters. I only have two complaints. 1 the wheel is useless go ahead and throw that away and get a better one and 2 the food dish was cracked but the plastic is so hard its not really broken. All and all if you happen to be at a petsmart and see this cage on sale like I did get it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Thea1 to small for any pet!
I have always been a fan of nation geographic but this really disappointed me. A hamster needs at LEAST 360sq inches of floorspace this does not provide that not even close. If i was to buy a travel cage I do see this a good travel cage but travel only.
