The CSW only comes in clear

The CSBW comes in several colors

If you buy a Comfort wheel get the giant one it's 12inches.

Haha sorry for the misinformation! I don't distinguish between the two very well unless I actually go to the site and look at the photos. I kind of just group them all into one.

Yeah, Larry's wheels are definitely pretty!

They need a wheel that's 11-12 inches in diameter. Ours is 11 because that's the normal size for a bucket of that size (5 gallon). I think the comfort wheel is 12? Not sure, but they tend to have an obvious size difference from the next one smaller, so you want the one that's around a foot. It looks huge compared to baby hedgehogs, but they can use it fine and they grow into it.

You could make your own wheel as well and save some cash. At the bottom of this page you will find three D.I.Y. links

Why does the one have a litterbox under it? I'm confused. I'd rather pay the money and have one premade, and plus, I don't have any tools.

Lots of people like to put litter boxes under the wheel to catch all the poos and pees that run off. I personally have had no success with it - my Kazooie does ALL of her business on the wheel, and that is where it stays. There hardly is ever any runoff. Some have more success with this than I have, I think hahaha (:
Many hedgies will use a litter box like a cat, and some never catch on. I think it is all up to personal opinion.
The CSW comes with a litter box simply because the base of the wheel can accommodate one as it is much bigger than the CSBW.

The cage I'm looking at is 30x18 and 14 inches high. Would this wheel (the one w/o the litterbox) work in this cage and still allow plenty of room?

I think Larry has the dimensions of his wheel on his website. The cage I have now is 18wx30lx18h and the CSBW fits perfectly and there is still plenty of room. On the highest setting the wheel measures 12.5 inches, so you're fine height-wise too.
I do, however, intend to upgrade to a C&C in the fall. But I think it should do perfectly (:

The CSW with litter pan needs a cage around 15 inches tall to fit. The CSBW will easily fit that cage it's a lot smaller. I could make the CSBW stand bigger to fit the litter pan if you'd like, just give me an email when you are ready to order [email protected]
