With the Lixit Critter Space Pod Small Animal Hideout, your little critter can burrow, nest, rest or just hang out. This out-of-this-world space pod is large enough for rats, baby ferrets and other small animals and can also be used for small, nesting birds. For creatures that prefer to be higher up, you can hang the Lixit Critter Space Pod from the top of their cage. Down-to-earth pets will enjoy nestling inside this small animal home when it’s turned upside down and placed on the cage floor.
Unique, colorful space pod design adds the perfect nesting spot for your pet.
Perfect home for small animals such as mice, hamsters, and sugar gliders.
You can hang from the top of a wire cage or simply place on the cage floor.
Comes apart for easy cleaning so your pets' home will always be neat and tidy.
Comes in two different size options to ensure the perfect hideaway for your furry pet!
Hang from the top of a wire cage, or turn over and place in the bottom. Take apart for cleaning. Use small size for hamsters, mice, sugar gliders and small nesting birds. Use large size for rats, baby ferrets and small nesting birds.
They all love it and sometimes all three will somehow jam themselves in there at once. They prefer it to be hanging from the top of the cage but they will sometimes sleep in it if it is set on the floor/shelf. BEST TIP I can give you is to put a small handful of bedding (I use wood shavings) with a folded up tissue on top of it, inside the pod. Change it out once or twice daily, whenever it’s wet. Otherwise the poor dears are just sleeping in a pee puddle since it has nowhere to go.

It was a bit smaller than expected, but that's my fault for not looking at the dimensions I suppose. I only got one piece of it but upon messaging Chewy, was given a whole one. It didn't fit two rats very well and the large size is much more expensive than the smaller one but I guess that's the one I needed.
Best thing to spend $ on for rats

I technically have 2n a half my 2nd one came w/o the cover, but as soon as I let them know chewy replaced it without charge...and I can still use the hanging hammock. My female even used one as a den for her babies. #supriselitter on tiktok
my boys' favorite place
on Mar 23, 2021
my rats ADORE their spaceship! They all pile in there for naps and their little tails hang out. it's the cutest thing. They're still pretty small so I'm not sure if this will work for them as adults, but right now it's their favorite hangout and nap zone.
It's easy to clean and clips on easily and sturdily to the cage roof.
My rats prefer hammocks
on Feb 27, 2021
My two rats rarely used this and prefer their hammocks. I tried placing it on the bottom floor and then tied it upside down with twine to the top of their home for a while. They would sometimes use this as their second option when the hammocks were being washed if it was high up. I tried to fill it with fleece and cuddly things, but it left less room for them to fit inside. I was hoping my ratties would like it as much as other reviewers.
Great for rats!

My rats love to pile into these and sleep. I've purchased two so far! I have a Martin's cage with 1/2" by 1" bar spacing and I needed to trim the hooks on the feet of this space pod to get them to fit over the bars, to hang it up from the ceiling of the cage. I used wire flush cutters to trim them down.

Lined it with some bedding but, my hedgies just pop in and out of it sporadically. Its high enough for them to climb in and out of easily. Easy to assemble and once its assembled it's a pretty solid structure for your pet. Colors are as vibrant as the photo shown.
Missing half of it.

I've heard great things about this item, unfortunately only the bottom half was shipped to me. I'll be going through the refund or return process now.
Great For Mice

Unlike other people, both of my pieces came together. My female mice are obsessed with this space pod! The small is great for mice. It clips on easily to the bars and is easy to take apart and put together.
Best hide for rats
on Feb 7, 2021
We have used this hide with several groups of rats now, and it is always a favorite. I’m always surprised by how many of them can manage to fit in it at the same time, highly recommend for rats.
