Cork Granule Substrate


3-8mm variety

Cork granules can make a good substrate for several reasons:

1. Natural Material: Cork granulates are made from natural cork, which is a safe and non-toxic material for hamsters. It's free from harmful chemicals or additives.

2. Soft Texture: Cork granulates provide a soft and comfortable surface for hamsters to walk, burrow, and nest in. This helps prevent foot and joint issues common with harder substrates.

3. Moisture Absorption: Cork has natural moisture-absorbing properties, which can help maintain a dry and comfortable habitat for your hamster by controlling humidity levels.

4. Insulation: Cork is an excellent insulator, which can help regulate the temperature in the hamster enclosure, keeping it cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter.

5. Chewable: Hamsters love to chew, and cork is a safe material for them to gnaw on. This can help keep their teeth healthy and prevent overgrowth.

6. Odor Control: Cork can help control odors in the enclosure by absorbing and trapping unpleasant smells.

7. Environmentally Friendly: Cork is a sustainable and renewable resource, making it an eco-friendly choice for hamster bedding.

Remember to monitor your hamster's behavior and health when using any substrate to ensure it's a good fit for their needs. Additionally, provide plenty of other enrichment items and a clean environment for your pet's wellbeing.
