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
OMG Jess!! lol When I lived with my old roommate we both had 2 turtles each and we were trying to design a turtle harness for them out of DIY hardware!! lol I didn't think people actually manufactured them!!!! lol
Can't wait to see pics of the little squishies Elliriyanna!
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
10 minutes is not even remotely long enough to meet a caged hamster's exersice needs. Sure, you can supplement the ball for 10 minutes (and they should only be in it for 10 minutes bc of the air circulation) but then put him in the bathtub or playpen or somewhere he can play for a couple hours. My hamster Button had free run of my room for his playtime (this was mostly the bed and I would creat obstacles and hide his food). Hamsters spend their nights foraging for food and since most people keep food dishes for their little rodents (I stopped when I realised how boring that must be) hamsters do not get to run arund and forage. Make tunnels and caves and ramps and things on your bed and let him run around for a while.
my hamsters get out in the ball 10 - 15 mins ( you can actually do up to 20 but its not preferred) and also get about a 30 minute play time daily. I would like to get them out more but until i move I'm lucky for that much. My Sofi Seeks out stairs little dork.
Anyway Alvin confused me
Is there a way to close this thread? Harnesses are a horrible idea
