It’s empty in here!
Its a huge cage, but it came with a chipped piece of plastic and the plastic is cracked. She kept chewing on the hole, but luckily I was able to cover it up with the wooden house.
This cage is great my Syrian loves it! But there are two small problems with it, the wooden shelves and houses are a bit hard to clean and if you have a leaky water bottle over it then there is a wet patch continuously showing. the other problem is that the shelves are hard to get in and out, it takes two people to get them in sometimes the higher they are, it could of just been cut wrong. But overall this product is great I would definitely recommend it!
Ok so I ordered this cage quite a while ago and it came quickly, in perfect condition. It's really easy to set up and just a generally lovely, spacious cage. My only two problems were 1. The wood stains, so I recommend putting something over the wood. 2. Sometimes it's a bit hard to access the hamster if they're right in the corner. I would not recommend for a dwarf hamster as the bar gaps are too wide. Otherwise, a lovely cage for a great price :) my hamster loves it.
It's perfect for our Syria hamster - sturdy, plenty of room for exercise and for adding toys etc. I'd been unsure whether a large wheel would fit in, but there's plenty of room. We have put more details in a review online (http://www.hamsterdays.byethost7.com/html/posts/20170315_BestCage.html). The cage arrived within days of the order being placed. Our hamster loves using the box as a run so obviously the packaging is sturdy and provides good protection for the cage in transit.
I ordered this cage a few weeks ago now, delivery came within 3 days via yodel with no issues at all. And it came undamaged at all. It were really hard to gadge how big the cage is by looking online at pictures and on the zooplus picture but you will he honistely suprised. It's got a deep Base for bedding and it has another wooden level you can attach as high or as low as you like depending on your layout you want. You can easy get a 28cm trixie wheel inside and loads and loads of toys fit in this cage too so I would buy toy shopping too if your upgrading your cage to the alexander. My girl loves it and runs around all night and didn't even go to bed the first day I transfered her as she were so happy with the amount of space she now has ! There is one big opening at the top of the cage and then two smaller ones at the side so very accessible and easy to clean out. The only things I'd think could benefit this cage is having a waterproof coating on the wood as if your hamster pees on it then it will just start to rott and ruin so I'm having to go out to buy some safe waterproof paint so it's waterproof. But luckily my hamster wees in her sand bath so not a huge rush. But if your hamster pees anywhere then you might want to paint the wood before you put your hamster in it. I'm very pleased with the alexander and my purchase from zooplus. Thankyou
This cage is quite simply the best cage you could ever buy for your hamster. It is FAR bigger than it looks in the picture. My hamster used to chew the bars a lot in his old cage and didn't run around much, he just waddled everywhere. In this cage, there is no more bar chewing and he dashes about all over in the large space he has. I think he's so much happier in here and no longer bored, hence the no more chewing. The only thing I don't like is the blue colour- but that's merely cosmetic.
This cage is fantastic, it's spacious and has loads of room to put in extra toys. I just got my hamster today and she's loving exploring it. Astounding value for money!
This is a giant hamster cage for my Syrian hamster nutmeg she loves it sooo good
I just received this cage today, i was stuck deciding between buying the Barney's cage or the Alexander for my Syrian hamster Merlin. Merlin is a rather large Syrian and a very inquisitive hamster so i am very glad i picked the Alexander. Its absolutely huge and amazing for the price! He loves it and can not stop exploring, you defiantly need lots of toys and places to hide or its just one large space with not a great deal to do. I love this cage and so does Merlin i recommend to all.
my sisters hamster Buzz has lived in one of these since he was a baby and he loves it its very big even for a syrian hamster wich he is
This is an amazing cage with loads of space for my Syrian hamster kiwi.She loves the levels and houses also the deep bedding tray is a bonus we can give her lots of bedding to burrrow. This was a great buy and I would highly recommend it.
Absolutely BRILLIANT cage! Without a doubt, the best hamster cage on the market! In response to those reviews claiming that the base is flimsy, it's really not. This cage has the sturdiest base of any plastic/wire cage I have ever come across, and I work in the pet industry. If a hamster is incredibly destructive and chews through this base, then your only hope is to buy a glass tank, because you will not find a wire cage more durable than this! Recommend this cage 100%!
Got this cage after I read so many amazing reviews on it and it is amazing for a hamster!! Be prepared as it really is massive! My Syrian hamster was bored in his old cage as he was chewing the bars everyday due to the lack of space but in his new cage he hasn't stopped exploring and I have had it for two weeks now. The different levels provide extra space for toys and he loves his house that came with the cage. I would definitely recommend this for a hamster (If you can afford it) as it really is the best one out there I have seen.
OH treated me to this cage as part of my birthday present, and wow what a cage! Firstly it's absolutely massive, totally underestimated just how big this thing is! I thought i had loads of different accesories for my hammy but the cage still looks bare, and she spends hours every night running about exploring.
This hamster cage is amazing, it's a great size and all the wooden parts are easy to put together. The cage is very sturdy. My hamster loves it ! Would recommend it to all
Excellent product, excellent price. Quick delivery. Very happy customer!
Well made and easy to put together. This thing is big though. Just make sure you have the space in the house for it. However the size does mean that there is plenty of floor space in the cage for additional toys.
Ordered it for my syrian hamster. But the ladder part is to big as for my taste. And it's taking too much space. Houses are great.Cage itself is huge!!! If I could I could lock myself in it. Good value for money. And the spacing between bars is actually 7mm. And my hamster was a bar chewer in the old cage. Lets hope that it will stay like that. The only bad thing would be that now I will need lots of bedding :(
Fantastic cage - so much space to "play" around with. There are so many high street shops out there that sell "large" hamster cages that measure 42cm x 40cm x 45cm, but the Alexander cage truly is large. Like a lot of people, we've kitted ours out with bits we've bought and with so much space to use, it's great to come up with lots of different configurations. The houses and platforms that are supplied are very plain, and the way the bits slide together is easy, but if you are precious about how the cage interior looks (like me) the houses do look a bit on the cheap side because the joins can be seen where the parts have been slid together. The platforms are really useful though and we have off-set ours at either end of the cage at different heights and added stuff around those. All in all, an excellent cage - robust, solid, easy to clean, easy to transport with handles supplied and nice small gaps between the bars (only 7mm) instead of 1cm.
Ordered this for my hamster Melody. It has lots of space and provides extra when the shelves are in. I haven't put her in yet, but I'm absolutely certain she's going to love it. She's never been in a cage over 360 sq inches. Can't wait to see her reaction to the sudden space increase! Thanks for the excellent service, Zooplus.
This cage is absolutely huge, and at a fantastic price. I've even got a 20cm wheel on the bottom and there's still plenty of head space on the top shelf, and loads of ground space. You couldn't match the quality, style, size and price with a single other cage anywhere else! It was delivered in 3 working days to the UK. It was well packaged and no sign of damage from transport. My hamsters 'starter' cage looked a decent size...until I put his stuff in there. Then it looked cramped. This cage has so much space...now need more toys to fill it! The houses are beautifully crafted and easy to put together. We put lots of research, time and energy into finding the right cage, and it was worth every second.
There are the best and the worst cages out there. And this is the best I have come across! Its better than a savic hamster heaven wich to me well lets say massive. I could put every single toy and a little more in here! Just amazing price , would definitely recommend.
This is without doubt the best hamster cage I've ever seen. The surface area of the cage is huge, and this is nearly doubled by the addition of the platforms. The wooden accessories are easy to put together and of excellent quality. Our hamster is a talented escapologist and she actually seems really happy in her new penthouse. Even if she wanted to escape I don't think she'd be able to. The service from Zooplus was outstanding. I ordered this on Sunday and it was delivered the next Tuesday with a bank holiday in between - Fantastic! Highly recommended all round.
I bought this cage for my hamster a few months ago and in my opinion it is the best that money can buy,my hamster and I love it! Easy to clean,practical and it looks nice,what more could you want?!
Came yesterday and boy it's huge......But love it and so does my Syrian hammy... Loads of room for him to run about and to add lots of toys for him.... I would get another when have saved for my 2 Russian dwarfs because the bar spacing will be ok for them.....
the cage is massive my eldest daughter thought it was for guinea pigs my youngest said no its for our hamster now we need to find lots toys to fill this cage up with,our hamster loves this cage it was quite easy to put together theres a little gap on the top door but this no problem we will hang toys from here over all its great value for money and it arrived in 3 days
This fabulous cage beats them all,it is the number one cage...its even better than the Hamster Heaven & Barney cage as there's so much more room for the hamster to move around and climb the cage bars.Wooden platforms fit all around the cage adding to the extra space..you can either paint the platforms with a non toxic paint like Plastikote or not bother...it all depends whether your hamster is likely to urinate on the platforms or not. You can have an 11in or 12 in wheel in the Alexander,no problem,as there's so much space,and for other toys as well. I have found my Hamster Heaven looks a bit cramped with a 12in Karlie Wonderland wheel in it,even though I don't have the tubes on and only the one platform,the pink one,so I think our Goldie will soon be moved into the Alexander cage,as there's far more floor space in the Alexander and with all the platforms there's even more room for many different kinds of toys. I can highly recommend this cage,its the best on the market in my view...a little expensive yes,but its well worth saving up for,and with narrow bars as well you can keep any kind of hamster in here and also the narrow bars help prevent bar chewing.
Amazing cage, my Syrian hamster has so much to do! You can put lots of toys in this cage so my hamster never gets bored. She also has lots of running around room which is VERY important for hamsters. It is very easy to clean and assemble.
Great cage, It's huge. The accessories are a good size and my Syrian hamster uses/fits in them really comfortably (unlike some of the stuff sold for hamsters), the cage was quite easy to set up once I had fiddled around with the shelves (I put them in upside down the first time!) The top part of the cage clicks into the base for extra security which is a great idea. The only things I would change would be to make the clips metal rather than plastic (to avoid chewing in the future) and a large front door rather than two small ones would make it easier to move things around etc. My Syrian is really happy with the cage & enjoys running up and down the ramps.
The size when I first opened this really took me by surprise- it's huge! I'm concerned about how long the wooden platforms will last, but other than that, this cage is brilliant. The wooden houses are excellent and my Syrian Hamster is extremely fond of them already
this is the biggest cage ever,i love it and my hamster loves it too
I LOVE IT YOU CANNOT GET BIGGER OR BETTER I KNOW ALOT ABOUT HAMSTERS AND I SAY THIS CAGE IS SUITABLE FOR ANY HAMSTER :D !! P.S please do not use cedar bedding because it can damage the hamsters lungs
i just have to say wow this cage is soooo big. just recieved it today, set it up and put Chester in and he's loving it so far, he's a climber and this gives him plenty of climbing opportunity his extra large wheel fits in perfectly (his wheel is new too before he wouldn't go in his wheel but as soon as he saw the new one he was straight in it) there is so much room for toys and also hanging toys, i'm just so pleased with this cage. Chester is a syrian hamster but the bar spacing would also be great for a dwarf i'm now saving up for another for Tup my russian dwarf :D I'm really happy with this cage.
This is the biggest hamster cage I have ever seen. It's perfect and not too high. Our hamster, George, seems very happy in his new home, the accessories enable you to create lots of areas for the hamster and there's still lots of room for wheels, toys etc... The only problems I've had so far is that it take loads of sawdust to fill it and it's pretty much a two man job to remove the top to clean it out as it's quite heavy. Really glad I got this cage.
bought this cage for my Syrian hammy and she loves it, comes with loads of accessories, easy to fit together, amazing cage and worth every penny, will and have recommended this cage
This spacious cage is home to one of my young syrians. The deep base is perfect for lots of substrate for her to dig in and there is plenty of room for a wide variety of toys and a large wheel. I think the sheer size of it overwhelmed her at first but now she loves all the space. The shelves can be moved about to suit which is an added bonus. It's really easy to clean and I love the large access door on the roof. It may seem expensive but when you look at how much pet shops are charging for cages half the size, it is actually very good value for money and worth the investment.
This cage is great , it's huge , the bar spacing is 7 mm not 1cm . It's good quality and well worth the money would definitely recommend , I knew it would be bigger than our old cage but Our 2 dwarf hamsters think their birthdays have all come at once ! Would also recommend zooplus excellent site .
Excellent quality, price and a large area for my gerbil to run about and exercise in. Really easy to set up and is nice and sturdy! Must buy!!
Brilliant sized cage for any species of hamster, including all dwarves due to the 7mm bar spacing. Ok so the wooden platforms can be a bit of a nuisance cleaning wise but nothing a drop of clear (nontoxic) paint won't sort out. Doors could be bigger but i find the little doors perfectly adequate for getting hamsters out. No major downsides whatsoever. Well made, looks awesome and best of all, the hamsters love it :) Buy away!
best cage ever, i bought for my gang of rex mice and they love it. Lots of space and things to do. Only downside is cleaning the wooden platforms.
