L. Borup 3 The cage is really cute and smells very nicely of pine. It was easy enough to screw together and instructions were not difficult.In the description of the product is says that Degu can live in it. Degu are known to chew through a whole stick overnight and this is an ALL WOOD cage (apart from the acrylic that functions as glass). I do believe it is a slightly too small cage for the bigger rodents (60 cm long) and despite it having several tiny shelves and "2 floors", that 2nd floor is not suitable for all animals. The shelf is very narrow to walk on without falling down, so it would likely fit hamsters or a rat the best. The top lid has a mesh loosely nailed on, but can't be firmly closed. You will need to add a lock of sorts if you are a hamster owner/breeder.But it is cute... and I may make a small "rainforest" garden in it because it can't hold the pet it was intended for.
