    I am in the process of making Rhino a bin cage. I have 3x 31l tubs, with lot's of floor space, ready to be drilled and stacked. They are quite low, so I was going to get a flying saucer wheel for her. However, looking at it in P@H, it looked TINY!? Even though the ham on the pic was a syrian, I think Rhino would fill it! Has anyone had experiance with this and would the Large size rat version be better for her?

    If he's big I think I would :)

    I've been looking at them and they do seem small for the animals they are meant for

    I know it's slightly different, but the medium flying saucer is big enough for 5 large mice to run on it at the same time :lol: I would think that most hamsters would be able to use it ok unless they are very big.

    i had the small flying saucers for my robo hamsters. they were fine for that size of hamster but wouldnt use them for normal sized hamsters, would defo recommend going a size larger. they are great wheels tho, hardly any noise!

    You must have different kind of ' medium' flying saucer to the ones I have then ?!?

    or veeeeeery tiny mice... :blink:


    Unless they have changed the sizes ??
    I have all 3 kicking around here.

    The small is too small for anything but the smallest of baby Mice / Dwarf Hamster...
    the medium is ok for fair sized Mouse or a Chinese ham...
    the large size is great - but far too big to fit in most cages !!

    Hmm, didn't think of that - mine are large for pet mice, so aren't the size of show mice!! But they did manage 5 of them on it, it was hilarious watching them - two at the top clinging onto the edge, one in the middle and 2 using the lower edge. They used the entire surface of the spinner, I was very impressed :D
     
  7. I would of thought the medium would be big enough for most syrians. Baby has one and it's plenty big enough for her. The small one though would be far too small.
