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.
