Exercise wheel with handy cork lining for Syrian hamsters and large dwarf hamsters
Like walking on air: For your small pet's delicate paws, a cork running track feels just right. Moreover, cork is naturally water-repellent, which makes it very easy to clean.
Why is this hamster wheel made from hard beech wood?
Because rodents have a strong urge to gnaw which they frequently try to satisfy. The running drum of this exercise wheel is made from hard beech wood. All other parts are made from sturdy birch wood. This combination offers as much resistance to a rodent's gnawing teeth as can be achieved using wood.
Please offer your pet some chewable alternative such as Artichoke Sticks or Dandelion Roots to satisfy this urge. Those materials are not only tasty, they are also rich in valuable minerals and trace elements.
Sturdy, durable and safe
Your pet will be able to enjoy the Ø 27 cm Rodipet® Super Silent Cork Exercise Wheel for a long time. The running drum is easy to move so even petite pets can use it.
The inside diameter of the exercise wheel is 27 cm, making it a large enough wheel for all but the largest Syrian hamsters, the the running track is continuous without cracks or tripping hazards.
This prevents injured paws. The large diameter permits dwarf hamsters and pets of similar size to tun without bending their backs.
No dangerous pinch areas
This exercise wheel's clever and sturdy design achieves a safe standing without using a dangerous front support. This means your pet can get in and out safely at all times.

Important notice when pups are present in the cage:
