Hamster Health: Photo of a Cage Mite

Cage mite

This picture of a bird mite looks very similar to what was in Rusty's cage. The mites in his cage were not shiny like this one, but the color is similar.  This is highly magnified and the mites in Rusty's cage were about the size of the tip of ball-point pen.

These are not welcome guests 
for any hammy.
