Wodent Wheel Junior

Wodent Wheel JUNIOR

$12.87
2 for $21.72

Product ID # 1257

Wheel is 7 3/4" diameter, 2 5/8" wide, 5 entry holes 2 1/4" diameter.  Overall height 8 3/4".

We've received a significant number of inquiries over the last couple of years from customers asking us to carry the Junior Wodent Wheel.  We take our customer inquiries seriously and we are pleased to now bring the Wodent Wheel Junior to those customers with special needs.

In most cases, we have found the Wodent Wheel Senior to be the best size for most sugar gliders.  We've actually run tests between the Senior size wheel and Junior size wheel to see which one the average glider prefers.  This testing was accomplished by using a "wodometer" which is a small attachment that basically measures the distance run.  The average glider will run further in the senior model telling us that it best fits the glider running style and spine curvature.

So why are we now offering the Junior Wheel? There is a population of gliders out there that are a bit on the small size.  And smaller than average size gliders will prefer a smaller wheel. Also, we've been asked by quite a few smaller breeders to offer this size as they like to start joey wheel training early and a smaller wheel would also accommodate the younger crowd that wants to have the same fun exercise and play activities as their parents do!  Ya can't blame a kid from wanting to copy Mom and Dad, right?  Hamsters and larger mice would also use this wheel - bigger pets will be more comfortable in the Senior or Wobust wheels.

Another good reason to have a Wodent Wheel Junior on hand is for the frequent traveler.  We understand that travel cages sometimes need to be smaller than the permanent habitat, and when on vacation, a glider should still be afforded the chance to engage in one of their favorite exercise activities!  You can also consider a large, lightweight, collapsible travel cage like these if you feel your travel cage is too tiny for ultimate glider happiness.

Now, if you are looking to get a Junior size Wodent Wheel because your permanent cage is too small to accommodate the Wodent Wheel Senior, our best advice is to get a larger cage! The minimum recommended size for a suitable glider cage is three feet tall and two and half to three feet wide.  This size habitat will easily accommodate the Wodent Wheel Senior and it's best to outfit your gliders with the right size stuff in all categories.

Sugar Gliders love Wodent Wheels.  Wodent Wheels feature a unique design with a safe, durable running surface and a support stand without dangerous pinch areas.  These wheels are much easier for a sugar glider to use than a wire wheel, encouraging needed exercise. 

This model has recently been re-designed and now sports snazzy new colors.  We really like the fact the color scheme is now dark because the old design white surface areas would show every tiny spec of dirt.  But keep in mind that just because the sporty new black/green design won't show messy grime, doesn't mean that it shouldn't be cleaned every couple of weeks.  To help repel dirt and grime buildup, try using Cage Shield to make the Wodent Wheel and other toy cleaning much easier.  

And if you would like to use this Wodent Wheel to also trim your glider's nails, check out the nail trimming Nail-O-Matic Track for Wodent Wheel Junior.  You can get the trimmer track and the Jr. wheel together and save $4.15.

The Wodent Wheel will also give you a sense of just how intelligent our tiny friends are.  They are attracted to the toy because sugar gliders like to crawl into holes.  They go in through one of the 5 entry holes and realize if they move just right, the Wodent Wheel will start to move. So for a few days, they will rock it back and forth.  Then the excitement begins...the marsupial version of Jeff Gordon masters speed before your own eyes!  Gliders will eventually get going so fast and so smoothly that some have reported feeling a breeze out in the room!

But seriously folks, if you have ever had a small pet maimed or killed by a wire exercise wheel, now you know why the Wodent Wheel is the only exercise wheel ever recommended and approved by the ASPCA during their Seal of Approval program (1999-2006).  This toy is a perfect complement to the stimulation provided by the Rope Toy and Feather Teaser.
