Super Pet® Tropical Fiddle Sticks Small Animal Toy
OK, but has some Flaws
I purchased this product because I had recently bought a new cage, and I wanted a kitchen area, so I needed a ramp. I needed something that would give my guinea pigs grip, but also knock off bedding, and be safe for them to chew. I liked the fact that I could bend it into a hut in case I decided to remove the kitchen. It worked great for a small ramp onto the kitchen. My pigs didn't like to chew it, though. I later found a new thing to use that would also keep my guinea pigs' nails filed down, so I purchased that and used it instead. I found that once a hut, my pigs didn't like it. My pigs is medium sized, and the other is large. Oreo, the large one, couldn't comfortably fit inside the hut, so he wouldn't use it. Zeus, my medium pig, fit inside of the fiddle sticks, but his head and rump stuck out, so he didn't feel safe in it. Overall, the product my work great for baby or small guinea pigs, but it doesn't work at all for medium or large pigs as a hut.
On another note, when I was using this product as a ramp, one end was in the bedding section and the other end was on the fleece. Both of the stick-things at the ends were damp (nearly soaked) with urine. The sticks absorb liquid like a sponge. I couldn't really was them, either, because they absorb so much liquid.
Overall, I think the product should be around $5.00.

Great Toy For Hammies!
My hamsters love these! They use animal-safe dyes on the wood, so they are chewable, and they can be shaped into a bridge or a ladder! Great toy, will buy again!

rats love it!
they're always in it or on top of it. i set it up so the sticks are horizontal as a hut and they use it all the time. super great.
only issue is it probably could get kind of smelly because of *~droppings~* and the fact that it's wood would make it hard to wash that off. but i haven't really had this issue yet, and i've had it for a month.
