hamster suicide!!

Hi everyone! Im having a big problem one of my dwarf hamsters is a little suicidal, (remember Im from southamerica and I cant write or speak very well english She believes she is spiderwoman and climbs the entire cage all day long, Ive seen here a couple of times fall really hard, but today she got her leg (or paw)trapped between the cage and wheel but I dont know how she did some magic and managed to get down with no harm, I thought that maybe after that she will be scared and never do it again, but she keeps on doing it. Im really scared, she is my baby and I dont want her to get hurt, and to make things a little bit worst, Im afraid she gets something broke and vets here in Ecuador wont be able to help her.. advice anyone?? thankyou!

How big is this cage?
If you were me I would end up getting a cage that the hamster wouldn't be able to climb and make sure she had loads of toys to entertain herself with.

She is most likely climbing because she is bored. Giving her stuff to play in, chew, dig in, ect. could keep her busier and give her more stuff to do so she wouldnt climb as often. Also, can you look in to getting an aquarium? THey dont have bars to climb on. Personally I think they are the best cages for hamsters. I dont know how much they are is South America, but around here they are really cheap- about $11 for a 10 gallon. You can also try giving her more bedding- hammies LOVE digging tunnels!

Oh, and your English is excellent!

In a world older than ours they move finished and complete, gifted with extensions of the senses we have lost or never attained, living by voices we shall never hear.They are not brethen, they are not underlings; they are other nations caught with ourselves in the net of life and time, fellow prisoners of the splendor and travail of the earth."
