Is Your Hamster Addicted to its Running Wheel?

Hamsters are naturally active animals and require a lot of exercise. This can be in the form of running on the wheel, through tunnels, up and down ladders, and burrowing through the bedding in their home. Ideally, it should be allowed activity outside its cage –that is, to explore other areas of your home. This must be done under careful supervision, or in a hamster ball (also under supervision). Limit access around the home to even flooring and wide-open spaces; hamster ball activity should not be near staircases as your hamster may tumble down and sustain serious injury.
