Hi all,

Maybe a bit of a strange question, but I bought a large (new) Flying Saucer wheel on eBay this week (in the Netherlands stores don't sell them).

Eddie, my hedgehog, tried it yesterday, but the wheel slides away when he runs on it. The wheel seems to be too light, in total it only ways about 350 grams... and it doesn't have any rubber on the bottom to prevent it from slipping. Is this normal? Thought that it might miss a weight in the bottom part, or something like that...

Here's a picture of the botom:


Thanks in advance!
Raymond & Eddie :)

I bought one yesterday afternoon, it looks excactly like yours and wobbles when Basil runs on it.

Hot glue some washers to the undercarriage until the desired weight is reached.
(this should also improve the wobble if its not due to the wheel bearing)

I use a strip of that spongy shelf liner underneath the Flying Saucers.
