Well they are one of the top 10 smartest animals and dogs aren't even in that number, animals like whales and dolphins are. They're able to squeeze through a drain hole, it's crazy!

Yep haha, I wouldn't get anything bigger than 1/2 an inch. I was looking at a ferret cage that was absolutely perfect, 180cm tall and only $100! But the spacing was way too big so now I have to look for a bird aivary and add platforms into it and take out the perches, not to mention spend an extra $200 for something that's smaller and more expensive to do up.

I did have a look at them but there just not big enough for me, my current cage is about the same size as them but I want one that is really tall rather than wide because my girls love to climb, and also my fiancé and I are super tall so we hate leaning down and having to get into a weird position to get them out. We'd rather just walk up to the cage and reach in to get them :)

oddly enough im short and about the same height as my cage.. i thought about adding a new level.but then it would be hard to get them out.it would make the cage over 7 feet high...

even when they run on there wheel together it takes smarts. they have to know to run in same direction and same speed which they do perfectly
