Enjoyable, but could do with some sources and updates. 450 sq in is US guidelines only - other countries recommend much bigger (620 sq in and bigger!).

Can you make it also accept Roborovski hamster, Roborovski dwarf hamster and possibly Robo hamster? And check the citrus statement - it's largely unsupported by any research and citrus is not necessarily more acidic than spinach or apple.

Maybe "What order are they" rather than "Group of species" as this would be more specific?
