Goran 82 Rat Cage
I had my mouse in a modified guinea pig cage which was nice but hard to clean due to the hardware cloth making the wire top heavy. Then tried him in a "bin" cage, which was easier to clean but my little guy hated it. Then we found the Goran 82.
It's not overly heavy so much easier to clean than his modded cage was, still gives lots of space for toys and hides, and the best part is HE (the mouse) loves it.
I love how the door opens as well. It makes it so easy to do stuff in the cage without any inconveniences whatsoever. My only complaint is the door latch could be better, but if it really becomes an issue, that can be replaced with something more secure. All in all, a great cage that is definitely going to see years of use in our home.
**While this cage is being currently used for a mouse and I've used 1/2" spacing with dwarf hamsters in the past, I would only use 1/2" spacing for larger mice/dwarf hams. Smaller ones may be able to get through.

Excellent Quality and Huge!
It's great for my Syrian hamster. The base allows for up to 5 inches of fluffy bedding for her to dig in without it getting all over the floor. The whole cage is very sturdy for transport, but not too heavy. We love it!

Excellent cage for syrian hamster owners in the US!
I ordered this from drsfostersmith.com. When you buy from them it gets shipped from the manufacturer and everything comes packaged. It's a great cage, ivory base and green wire top. Bar spacing is 1/2" so only suitable for syrians? It comes with a large rectangular shelf, a large food dish (too large for a hamster), large water bottle (also too large) and a huge tube that can be hung from the top of the cage. The tube has some ventilation slits but I'm going to lay some felt in it to cover them up and hang it from the top with some short bungee ties. Really like the green wire top (odd because I'm not much a a green person). The wire top I received is in perfect condition, every bar is perfectly straight and no paint rubbed off. It's about 32.5" long x 20" deep x 14" tall. The door is part of the front and top of the cage, 15" long and 7" tall on the front and 7" deep from the top. Makes it very easy to access anything in the cage. It can fit a huge 11-12" wheel although if you have a 12" I recommend not having any bedding under that spot. I'm very happy and satisfied with the cage. I highly recommend it for syrian hamsters!

Great Hamster Cage..
Great cage for both Dwarf and Syrian Hamsters. It's spacious, sturdy, and affordable. It's also an investment because it can be passed on to other hamsters. I like the green bars..It's easier to look inside the cage and see what's going on than a cage with white bars. It also looks more natural, and if you do natural cage set ups, the cage colors are perfect.
