Default Re: wheels.

Don't get a Wodent Wheel. They are a pain in the butt for cleaning as you have to take it all apart. Because of the enclosed design the feces and urine stay trapped in the wheel for hedgie to constantly run through and breathe in. There is a center bar that can rub on their backs. Larger hedgehogs have difficulty with the opening size. Hedgies often like to jump off while the wheel is moving which with those holes is dangerous and can cause injury.
