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, Junior, and Wobust 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 Seniormodel - telling us that it best fits the glider running style and spine curvature.

So why are we now offering the Wobust Wheel? For one thing, there is a population of gliders out there that are a bit on the large size.  And larger than average size gliders will prefer a larger wheel.  Also, we've been asked by quite a few breeders to offer this size because in breeding cages with multiple pairs of gliders, every glider gets a chance to run in the wheel because several can run at the same time!  Large rats, prairie dogs, and hedgehogs would also use the Wobust Wodent Wheel.

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 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.

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 3 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).
