Hampture 2.5

Hampture Mk.III is cool, but it's enormous and heavy, a pain in the ass to lug around. I need something more portable, but with enough living space for the hamsters for 24 hour missions. Enter: Hampture 2.5

It's a two story tower expansion to Hampture Mk.II connected by a transparent tunnel. This gives each hamster a private area and a means of exercise (for whatever reason when put in a circular enclosure, roborovksi hamsters will run themselves around the edge until tired out). They haven't yet figured out that they can reach the second floor, I may have to put in a climbing tube segment, but otherwise they spent the first few minutes thoroughly exploring the addition before going back to building a nest in the living quarters. Here's a video of the hams hanging out in the expanded outpost:
