Flying Saucer Medium
Superb exercise 'wheel'!
I've kept and raised all kinds of rodents for over 35 years, and this is the best way for your small rodent or other pet to exercise. I recently bought 2 of these in large size, one for an older teddy bear hamster I took in, and one for a pair of young rats. No more rattling noise like those plastic wheels make, and no squeaking like the metal ones inevitably do. They accepted it right off and can really gallop on it too. They are far more interested in running on it than chewing it -at least so far? This is an excellent product! Very safe too...no catching toes or tails! I had a furry-tailed pet that actually caught & wound up their tail using a regular wheel years ago...it really happens and it was awful, caused panic & pain. Thank you!

When I first got my chinchilla I got him one the the wheels you typically see for small animals. Oddly enough he was afraid of! I saw this and decided I would try it because he needs more exercise. He didn't seem to mind this one! I would suggest this to anyone

My hedgehog uses this nightly, I don't see her run- she is shy about that- buti can tell she spends time on the saucer. Nice and easy to clean also!

Quiet, Compact, and Fun
For some of my older rats that have used a standard wheel for years, this one wasn't a huge hit, but any young rats that are still into exploring and trying new thing LOVE it! What's great about this wheel for me is that it can fit into places that other wheels are too tall to fit, and if more than one gets on at once, you don't get one flung upside-down. I will be purchasing more of these for sure in the future. I have large cages, so it's not that I don't want to spend the money to have a large enough cage to fit the proper wheel, but for adding a second wheel to a smaller shelf in the cage, or adding a wheel to a smaller quarantine cage, and things like that, this is perfect!
