    I have ordered one for one of my Russian hamsters with a den add on too for her to sleep in. They don't look very big on the website but it says they are 27 long inches which is quite big really isn't it as hamster heaven is only around 31 1/2 inches.
    Just wondered if anybody on here had one so they could tell me what they think of it.:confused:

    Oh that's good.:D

    I meant to say it's the loft one I was on about because I think there are about three that can be used as a main cage.:confused:

    Aww it sounds great.:D
    I ordered it from Netpetshop for £32.99 yesterday - can't wait for it to come.:D

    I got her a Savic peggy cage but she didn't like it so it's sat in the shed now doing nothing so might sell that on ebay if I ever get round to it cos she only spent one night in it and I moved her back to her old cage. She didn't come out all night and I thought she had died.:eek:

    No I think they are meant to be for Syrians really and they do seem to be bigger than they look in pictures. I measured my hamster heaven and that's 31 1/2 inches and the Habitrail ovo loft is 27 inches so that's quite big isn't it? You can get allsorts of add ons too if you used it for a syrian but I don't think a russian would manage the large upright tubes so I've just bought a den as an add on.

    I've not heard of glittertrail are they crittertrail with glitter on?:confused:
    Don't forget to post piccies.:D Sounds like a bargain.:)

    Wow that looks great. I think they were selling those for £34.99 in one of our local pet shops - much cheaper online aren't they?;)

    That is definitely a pretty expensive cage for the size. It's nice to look at though.

    I wouldn't put a Syrian in the Ovo range unless they had zero tubes and there were lots of rooms. They are very nice to look at though...and easy to clean! :D

    I will get pics soon but I have a house party tomo so I have been tidying. I have tidied the back garden...weeded, swept etc etc. :D
