    Tank toppers are good too, but you'll have to weave cardboard through the metal on the bottom and replace it once it's been chewed. It's quite possible for a hamster to get it leg caught inbetween the bars which could lead to a broken leg.

    The Space Habitrail was cute, but impractical. I want the children to have the chance to take the pet home over the weekends if they wish. A cage with lots of tubes sticking out of it would not help. Also those things are way small. My neice has one for her dwarf hamster. There's no way a Syrian would fit. Also does it need to be a two story cage or will one story suffice. There are several inexpensive one story cages at Petsmart. The plastic hamster ball yay or nay? I thought the kids would get a kick out of seeing it run around. Thanks again!!!

    My syrian hamster tends to prefer mostly one story, although her cage does have a ledge that she uses to clomp on and sleep under. The number of levels would depend on your personal taste although I wouldn't go higher than 2 levels. I tend to like the all plastic cages because when they burrow you don't get bedding everywhere (but if it's at school then the janotor will have to dealt with that :wink: ).

    I have a hamster ball for Gypsy. Picked it up pretty cheap at Wal-mart. It can roll on the ground as an enclosed ball. It also comes with an attachment that allows it to be hooked onto a stand and leaves one end open so it can be used inplace of a wheel.
