Hello! When I first got my hedgie (close to a year ago now) the recommendations I kept getting in regards to an exercise wheel was a silent spinner from living world. I bought him a 12" silent spinner and I have not had any problems with it in the last year. I have, however, been hearing lately that these wheels can actually be quit dangerous for hedge due to the small joint area between the two pieces of the wheel! Darwin has never had any issue with his wheel and we keep his toe nails clipped to a good length. I was wondering if I should be concerned about his wheel or not, and before the suggestion is made, there is nowhere around for me to get a storm bucket wheel without outrageous shipping (and by that I mean it would cost at least 70$ plus tax). If anyone has any comments, concerns or other suggestions I would love to hear them!
