: >hampsters just chew through
: >. Does anyone else have this problem.
Well, I probably have more Habitral trails than most people. Hamsters
chew on the 5way and the 3way connectors. They also love to chew on the
wheel connectors. They usually don't chew on the tubing. They do scrape
their teeth on the end connectors either pushing them out, or making them
hard to see through with the scratches.
Sometimes, depending on the hamster they will even sleep in the tubing.
Though, you can disconnect the tubing until they start to sleep in their
cage again. Then reconnect it. This has worked on several occassions
as I'm more stuborn than the hamsters that I've been helping to take
care of. They also like to sleep in the wheels which makes it difficult
for them to run in.
I have probably 40 or 50 ft of tubing with plenty of T's and 5ways and
curves. 1 30gallon, 1 10gallon, and 1 Habitral cage.
