Questions & Answers

Can this exercise ball be used for a baby turtle?
Answer by ChewyApr 11, 2019
An exercise ball should not be used for turtles.

Is this a good size for a small rat
Answer by ChewyMay 27, 2020
The manufacturer recommends using the 11½ inch ball for juvenile rats and small breeds, and the 13 inch ball for adult and large rats.

How does it attach to the cage
Answer by ChewyApr 11, 2019
The exercise ball does not attach to a cage. It allows your pet to explore any open space on the floor. We recommend only using this while under supervision.

Can a hedgehog use this ?
Answer by ChewySep 05, 2019
The 11.5 inch and the 13 inch exercise ball are suitable for hedgehogs and rats.

Great - Not for it's intended purpose

I strongly ethically disagree with hamster balls due to the way they damage the spine and disorient the animals because of how it spins visually. Not to mention respiratory concerns and their feet getting stuck in air holes - however, I never intended to use this for that. I got this to place into my cage as a see-through hide, and my mice absolutely love it! The best part is that they think I can't see them, so I get to see them all snuggling in it all the time. Tl;dr, excellent use as a hide! I beg people to not buy balls for their intended purpose, though.

Very Unsafe For All Small Animals

These should not be sold anymore. All small animals have no way of knowing how to control the ball causing them to run into things, these balls are also known to cause breathing issues & broken feet & toes for hamsters.

Small gerbil run

It was a bit smaller then I thought it would be. It doesn't roll like it should. More weight in some areas

Perfect for my little critters!!

I bought 2 of these for my African Pygmy Squirrels- they are the perfect size and allow my critters to explore without me getting worried that they will get lost or fear of them being a snack of my mini schnauzers.

Broke when put together

Super cute little ball for our tiny baby hampster, however the pieces that connect the two halves together broke off when we put it together.

Not for chinchillas

Please don’t purchase this for your chinchilla. It can overheat and die very quickly from heat exhaustion.

7 inches? More like 3 to 4

My fat little hamster is so uncomfortable it this tight poorly made ball that I do not even bother trying to use the other two I bought for our rats. Price, is NOT right nor is description

i have never bought this item before. But from what I know its bad. The holes for breathing don’t give enough air. Your pets toes can get stuck in the toes and break them. They can bump into things giving them trauma. And most of all its not a good product. hamsters are not toys. They need 6 inches of bedding. A cage minimum is 450 by 450. Not a critter trail. Please research before buying a hamster. Don’t use this item unless its a extra hideout in there environment. Btw the photo isn’t mine*
