Thumbs down here too. Although I did use this for a year with my hog, I was unaware of the potential dangers. I am so glad I was able to find a different wheel to use.

Don't be fooled by the smooth plastic of the wheel thinking that pee and poo will slide off. This wheel was a NIGHTMARE to clean, and the poo really stuck on. It contributed to my hog's gross feet of which I had to wash weekly.

I know people who use this wheel for rats and found that some large rats weighing 600 or 700 grams can actually break the wheel when they climb on, causing injuries to their rats. I'm sure the same could occur for a large hedgehog.
