The Oxbow Hamster Habitat provides an all-around paw-some place for your four-legged friend to call home. This space offers a variety of ways for your hamster to stay stimulated and engaged! Watch your best bud climb, play and explore throughout the perimeter track, wheel and bridge as you watch through the clear base. Your pet’s natural instinct to hide will be met, allowing him to feel safe and secure. Open air ventilation and an easy-to-clean structure makes this habitat terrific for your pint-size sidekick.
The perimeter track encourages your hamster to explore.
Even when your best bud is hiding you’ll be able to spot him in the see-through base.
The habitat is super easy to take apart and clean.
Your pet can climb, play and explore on his bridge and wheel.
Hanging food bowl and clear water bottle are included in this open-air ventilated habitat.
I assume anything from Oxbow is quality. Yikes! Do not buy this hamster enclosure. Impossible to fit the parts together. Falls apart. Too small for a hamster. I spent 3 hours trying to make it work. Poor quality. Shame on Oxbow.DO NOT BUY!
Way too small- especially for a Syrian
on Feb 7, 2021
No idea why oxbow would think it’s okay to market a Syrian (teddy bear, golden, etc) hamster for this cage. I’m sure this cage would suffice for smaller hamsters or better yet mice, but from one day of use my Syrian was biting at the bars and hated it. Since then, I’ve done some research, made an inexpensive bin cage and got her a much larger wheel because the one this came with looked painful to watch her run on it was that small. She’s since been much happier in her new home and I’m glad I made the switch. If you have a medium to large hamster- please don’t get this cage. They won’t like it, and they’ll let you know.
Great for mouse

I purchased this for my sweet field mouse that I had to raise from about a week old & it’s perfect for her. See through bottom, she feels she is tunneling. We LOVE the top access to her. Very convenient. The only negative is she chewed the wheel holder off, so keep in mind you’ll likely have to get something else for exercise. Has room to add on ledges & ropes, but not not much floor space for extras.
Great for mice!

I have one male mouse living in this cage, and he loves it! I would recommend it for mice, not Hamsters.
Less than “recommended” space
on Mar 8, 2020
Although this is smaller than the “recommended” guidelines of online hamster communities, I believe this cage is more than what the humane society recommends. If you don’t have the space for a 40 gallon breeder tank or an IKEA Detolf, then this might be a better option than what else is out there, like a standard critter trail or a 10 gallon tank. At least there is good ventilation, it has a good depth for bedding, and it might be easy to clean. All of my tanks are bigger than 450 but I wouldn’t attack anyone for having this. I would even use it temporarily.
Too small for hamsters
on Nov 17, 2019
The Oxbow Enriched life hamster habitat is too small for any type of hamster, even the smallest dwarf hamster. Hamsters need at least 450 square inches of floorspace, excluding levels because they count as enrichment, not floorspace. The wheel included with this is also too small for any hamster species(hamsters are species not breeds). The wheel will cause any hamster to arch it's back. The cage also only has one very tiny door at the top. Hamsters are prey animals, so when a human hand is coming down from above, they will be very scared.
Does not allow enough space for any Hamster

The minimum required floor space for Hamsters in the U.S. is 450 sq in, however, 600+ is highly recommended. The best cage out there is the Prevue 528, however, you can also create a DIY bin cage for cheap. If you need more info about this cage (or others), please watch Munchie's Place (YouTube). She has a good way of explaining things without me having to go into too much detail. Thanks!
I'm disappointed in you oxbow..

I love your rat food, hate your hamster food. It's terrible. Pretty good brand otherwise. But this? Horrid. Way to small for any hamster. It's not the 80s anymore. 450+ Sq inches. This is just gross
