I have so many of these! If you're like me and don't have time or steady hands to manually clip your rodent's nails every week, these are a must have. Just make a little stairwell underneath your water bottles so they have to step on them multiple times per day.
Another good thing about using them around water bottles is that they absorb the occasional water drip. It protects your bedding from excess moisture (or even mold if you don't notice it immediately).
The one flaw these have is that since they are made of lava rock, sometimes the screw inside the ledge comes loose. All you need is a dab of hot glue on the screw and it's as good as new.
Major let down
on Oct 3, 2018
I purchased this item about 3 weeks ago, it was in use for two. I was very excited to add it to my ratties cage. I have two 4 month old rats, still on the small side. The last 3 days I noticed the lava ledge not level. After inspecting it today the screw into the ledge is loose and renders it unusable. I've tried pushing the screw in deeper but it no longer anchors into the ledge. Very disappointed as it's only been two weeks and my girls are not very big to have put alot of strain on it.
Not a ledge

Too small to be a ledge, but the bunnies enjoy chewing on it. So I gave it 4 stars. Trimming their teeth was the primary reason that I bought this item. They were outside and had plenty of things to trim their teeth and nails, br we have recently brought them inside, so this makes for a good substitute!
Use for rats

My rats all love these and it encourages them to chew these rather than their plastic cage pans for the most part. They love climbing on them and I have 5 in my cage. Their nails seem less sharp since they've been climbing on them also. Just know they might feel inclined to pee on them, its not too big of a deal for me

I have heard great things about the lava ledge for rats so I purchased it and they seem to like it. I like it cuz you guys sent me a purple one and purple is my favorite color.
Bite Me, please.

Both my chinchillas love these- for different reasons. One guy (David Gilmour) uses it as his favorite lookout perch, our other guy (Jimi Hendrix) chews through them like a lumberjack in a haunted forest. And we did receive a pink one. Its fine, my guys can get in touch with their feminine side. Chin names given by my rockstar son.
Great But Always Break
on Sep 22, 2018
I love these lava ledges ( or I should say rocks ) because my chinchilla loves to chew on them and it's great for his ever growing teeth. But they always seem to fall off the screw as soon as I get them out of the package. It's a real bummer because the ledge is such a nice add on to my chins cage. I really wish they were built better...
Only blue is good.

Over the last year I've gotten around 6 lava ledges. Out of all 6 only the two blue ones haven't fallen apart within the first two weeks of me having them. You can still keep them in the cage as chew toys though, I put one in my hanster cage under his water bottle.
Rats Like Them
on Oct 18, 2018
My rats like to sit and climb on these ledges. They do give it a nibble now and then. I was hoping it would wear down the toenails but have not noticed improvement in that area. I have not had any issue with the ledges breaking.

The base isn't wide enough to safely secure the ledge, it causes the ledge to turn sideways.. if one of my rats got up on one of them to rest believing it was secure but fell off because they wasn't expecting it to tilt then they could get hurt bad.. their cage is tall and they like to climb the sides but now that they are grown up they get tired, my intent with the ledges was to give them resting post to encourage them to continue climbing around, but I don't want to give them false security.. I intended to purchase several to give them plenty of resting post but until improvements are made I'm not going to buy more.. it could be a good product if improvements were made
