Can Hamsters Eat Egg Carton?

An egg carton (also known as an egg box in British English) is a carton designed for carrying and transporting whole eggs.

These cartons have a dimpled form in which each dimple accommodates an individual egg.

This structure helps protect eggs against stresses exerted during transportation and storage

It does this by absorbing a lot of shock and limiting the incidents of fracture to the fragile egg shells.

An egg carton can be made of various materials, including;

  • foamed plastics such as polystyrene foam
  • clear plastic
  • being manufactured from recycled paper
  • molded pulp by means of a mechanized papier-mâché process. (source)
