me and my brother used to have 2 "male" hamsters. one turned out to be female and killed hte male since my parents kept them in 1 cage the whole time. the female got pregnant, killed the male then ate the plastic running wheel. she left spider arms for the wheel leaveing the 2 circular rails with bars intact like she plannes to go for a road trip with the wheel. hamsters arent known for digesting plastic very well and it did her in. we were around 10-12 yrs old when we liked animals but quick enough to move on once they passed.
that aside they did escape the cage once when we left it open. i found mine in my room, the same situation regarding my brother's hamster in his room. found it ironic if anything.
