Marshall Turtle Tunnel 20" x 16" x 7.5"
My rat LOVES his turtle - he scoots from one opening to another playing peek a boo. He pulls his little blankies in and sleeps in it. He hides treats in it - and he pines for it when it is being washed, He has lots of toys and forts but his turtle is by far his favorite. I sent another to my daughter for her sugar gliders and they were immediately just as delighted.

Easier For Us To Use When It's Flipped Upside Down
These turtles are really cute, cozy, and warm for Ferrets, or other small pets. However, the way the legs are made they actually aim slightly downward, and my elderly ferret, who is losing his vision, just couldn't figure out where the holes were to even attempt to get in. So, instead of returning it, I flipped the turtle over upside down, and now the arms are pointing upward, allowing him to maneuver easily in, and out of his new favorite hide out. Flipping it also put the most cushioned part of the turtle (the shell) on the bottom, giving my ferret even more cushioning for him to rest his old achy bones, and muscles on.
But the extra thickness, from the flipping, may have caused an additional issue that needs to be mentioned. My Ferret managed to get his toenail caught in the thread/batting on the inside of the turtle which left him unable to get one foot loose. When found, his body was outside the turtle, one foot was stuck inside the turtle, the batting and thread was wrapped around his toe, and he was dragging the turtle around in his cage.
After lifting my ferret, and the turtle he was caught in out, and cutting the threads/batting of the turtle that he was stuck on, then giving my guy a good close nail trimming too, I've had no further issues with this happening.
Even with the above issues I've noted, I would still recommend this because they love it. If your pet can't/won't go in it, you might want to try flipping it to see if the leg angle is causing the problem. Always keep your pets nails trimmed well as they do grow quickly, and check them often because you never know in this, or Any cloth type bedding/slings, etc. when they may get their little nails stuck, and need our help to get free.

Once it got unscrunched from the packaging, the ferrets liked it. It's a great place to hide treasures and to fall asleep in.
