DIY Hamster Harness

I am the proud mommy to 2 syrians and a dwarf hamster and would love to be able to take my little man out to explore when its nice. I already can with the girls but I would love to have a simple harness for them too just in case I ever want to take them out.

Also I am VERY careful with my hamsters I know the risks of outdoors

are you talking about the dwarf? From my experience, dwarves can slip out of anything by contorting their bodies.. i've never heard of a harness for a dwarf but if you do make one, share it with us!!

Maybe you could try a reptile harness? One like this with little holes for their arms to go through might work.

LOL, Amanda! I know they make plenty of lizard harnesses (Even for teeny tiny anoles) but you should totally invent the first turtle harness! I bet you'd be rich if you could come up with a snake harness... That would be a challange.

lol I may do that if I ever get another turtle ... draw the little harness into the shell lol. Tortoises its pointless with they are too slow ( not stereotypical just like not gonna run away) and a leash is not stopping them lol water turtles are so fast O.O

My turtles used to dig in the grass. I had a NIC pen set up outside for them in the grass. But then my creepy boarding house neighbors came by and said "the stray cats are gon' git'tem" which was code for bring the dang turtles inside bf their supper to the weirdos next door!!! lol Harnesses would be redundant for my diggers
