Hamster Mazes

Maze Building Tips

You can build a hamster maze out of hamster tubes, cardboard tubes, or any other random materials you might have laying around the house. Just make sure that your mazes are safe. Be careful not to use any building materials that can injury your little pet. Avoid any materials that have sharp edges that can cut your little pet, objects that can collapse and crush them, or any materials that will make them sick if they decide to gnaw on them. Don’t let any nails stick out if you decide to build your maze out of wood. Likewise, don’t use toxic glue to glue pieces together. If you build a maze that is three-dimensional, make sure it’s sound and secure so it doesn’t collapse which can lead to injury or death. Even a small fall can break your hamster’s bones. Lastly, never leave your hamster unattended while in its maze, and make sure it doesn’t go without water for an extended period of time.

Don’t be put off by all these precautions though; your pet hamsters will love the challenge of this game. A maze is a good way to give you and your pet hamster an activity to fight off boredom as well as allowing them to get plenty of exercise.

  1. that is a very cruel thing because it is such small space and they might get panicy and stressed. especially if you have food at the end because they would really want the food but they can’t get it because they would be figuring out how to get out the maze.that was just a little thing you need to take on board just to mention the cruelty in that

    • Wouldn’t you just pick up your hamster and put him next to the food then? It’d be cruel to watch him suffer, so just take apart the maze and put him next to his food.

  2. I don’t know which store in Surrey Bc has tubes cause i never can really find any at any pet store and i do not want to go to pe tsmart because last time i got a tube from there my hamster chewed the tube and escaped so i want something strong and escape proof does anyone know anywhere?
