Got this for my gerbilarium. Gerbils love it. Perfect size and hangs nicely in the cage. They sit on it, and they can also grind their teeth down. When this one wears out, I will definitely be buying another.
My Chin loves it!
My chinchilla Kimchi devoured this stone. He loved it so much and it was gone in about 3 days. I was very happy with the quality as there had been some rumors of a weird smell on this product. But no weird smells! Overall very happy with the product! Ordered the 3 pack this time too
These are great for grinding teeth, but I don’t think they hold up well. This particular one got wet and it broke into a bunch of tiny pieces.
Noxious Chemical Smell
I ordered two of these and to my dismay both had terrible outgassing. It took several hours of baking on low heat for it to be at a level I felt comfortable exposing my rats to. Now that they no longer reek, the ledges are nice and firmly attached to the cage near their food and water and have worked well to prevent them scratching open my hands by accident. The coating can be easily scuffed off when wet, which doesn't matter much to me but heads-up if you do care.
No more scratch marks!
We started putting lava ledges around the rat cage, but specifically as a way to get to their water and their favorite hammocks. They get a lot of use, and it files their nails way down so they don't mark our arms up during playtime anymore. Lava ledges are porous though, and when our rats poop on them and inevitably step in the poop it is impossible to get it off of the ledge completely because it gets into the tiny holes.
Usually great, not this time
I've ordered these many times, and also have bought them from stores. They usually last months. I waited a couple months to open these and put them up, as I still had quite a few I was using. Once I opened them, they lasted less than a week and then the ledge was falling off the metal part that usually holds them. I now have 3 lava ledges that are used as just chew blocks because they won't stay on the holder.
A Good Stone
I purchased this pumice stone to help wear down my dwarf hamster's nails. First, I was pleasantly surprised by the size of the ledge, as it covers a good amount of surface area. My hamster was a little wary of climbing on it as a ledge, so I sewed fabric around the bolt that attaches it to the cage wall and placed it in a high-traffic area of the cage. It does smell a little strongly of a chemical when it first comes out of the package, but the smell dissipates after a few days and my hamster is not deterred by it. The bright colored paint is also a good idea because it shows on the stone where the animal has chewed or walked because it scratches the paint off to reveal the gray stone underneath.
Reeks terribly of fuel, had to throw away
As soon as I opened the package I was hit with a very strong odor - the entire ledge stinks of gasoline. I tried washing it, letting it sit in the sun, and finally just left it on the counter for a few weeks - nothing helped. There is no way I would ever put something with such a strong acrid smell in with my mice. It went in the trash.
Great climbing ledge for rats
I use these to create extra access points to the top levels of my rats' cage. They're easy to move around between cage cleans/redecoration and the boys love them--they're great for climbing, excitedly waiting for me to open the cage on, occasionally chewing, and sometimes even napping. They definitely need to be changed out sometimes (the boys are...not the cleanest) but they're a great price and last a decent amount of time with the occasional spot clean.
Not the same as before
I’ve ordered hundreds of these but my most recent order I noticed they were not the same. The have a weird odor but also they seem more dense and heavy. My animals used to go crazy for these and would chew them in one day, but now I put one in and it sits there for months. They use it as a perching ledge now rather than a chewing block. I’ve had to find other items for them to chew on and grind their teeth down.
