Are these big enough for rabbits
Answer by ChewySep 27, 2017
Kaytee Lava Ledge Small Animal Toy is perfect for your Chinchilla, Rabbit, Mouse, Rat, Hamster, and Gerbil.

What are the ingredients
Answer by ChewySep 15, 2017
This toy is made of pumice rock and is completely safe to chew and promotes clean and healthy teeth.

Can this work on my hamster's toe nails as well? My Avery's are getting very long and I am afraid to cut them
Answer by ChewyAug 13, 2018
This product would not be suitable for trimming toe nails. It's made of pumice rock, it’s completely safe for chewing. Its coarse, hard texture even cleans your pet’s teeth as he chews.

My rat is actually ingesting the rock is that safe?
Answer by ChewyJun 20, 2018
This rock is deemed pet safe so it should be harmless if ingested by your rat.

They aren't as good as they were

I have purchased these lava ledges countless times and unfortunately I've seen a decrease in quality. The paint they use for the ledges now has a much more chemical smell and coats the ledges in a "heavier" way. With the last one I purchased I see that they are now using some plastic hardware which is not safe for chinchillas. Luckily I had leftover hardware from an old set of ledges to switch it out with. I will continue to purchase these at a reduced price (they are often on sale) but if another company could do it better I would switch! My chinchillas still use these often and the product works well to give them additional climbing space.

Excellent natural nail trimmer for rats

I get these Lava Ledges to put in my rats' cage. They love to sit on them. The ledge is an excellent natural way to keep the rats' nails short. I have only one in their Double Critter Nation at this time. I just ordered three more and plan to put ledges around the cage. They particularly like them near the front so they can sit on them and watch for me.

Was not a fan

I got it for my pet rat but he doesn't mess with it at all doesn't really seem to care for it so I had to take it out. Of his cage

This item is no longer safe for chinchillas as one of the metal washers has been replaced by a plastic one. Not sure who at Kaytee thought this was a good idea. This was one of the few cage safe items available at major retailers for chinchillas. So disappointed in this change.

Smells like gas

I got these for my chinchillas, and I’m quite disappointed that I cannot use them. They both smell like gas, and for that reason I’m not going to risk using them.

Love this!

My rats love this lava ledge! It lasts a while! They use it as a chew toy and for something else to jump onto

I guess these are updated lava ledges, cause they are bigger than the old ones and seem way more sturdy! These are going to be amazing for my boys!

great ledge

I bought two (one for each cage) and my rats love it! The females seem to chew on it more than my males (who like to poop on it, lol..), but they love climbing on it.:)

Smells like wd40 and has plastic now

These used to be okay for chinchillas however my last order came smelling like wd40. I cannot use them. However even had they not smelled like wd40 they would be unsafe because they switched the washer to plastic. Seriously not okay for chinchillas. I have a picture of an older one with the metal washer versus the newer stinky one with a plastic washer for comparison
