Sugar Gliders love Wodent Wheels.  They are low cost, much safer and quieter than conventional wire exercise wheels, and have a clean, simple oversized design that fits the glider's running style perfectly.  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.  Lady rats, squirrels, large hamsters and small hedgies would also use this size wheel - larger pets should use the Wobust Wheel.

We really like this color scheme (and it's the only one we sell) because the dark colors tend to hide glider grime.  But keep in mind just because the sporty black & green design won't show off every speck of dirt, doesn't mean that the wheel shouldn't be cleaned every couple of weeks.  

This model includes a wall-to-wall plastic shield built into the wheel itself that completely covers the axle.  This shield  eliminates the need to inspect the axle for the stickiness that can lead to tail-axle injuries, because the glider's tail cannot reach the wheel axle.  Also included are special washers with "walls" which ensure the hitchpin is installed correctly and won't protrude - see pictures at left.

To help repel dirt and grime buildup, you might also try using Cage Shield to make 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 this wheel.

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 hurt, 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.
