The Volcano View Tenrec Wheel is ideal for exercise and enrichment.
It’s the perfectly sized counterpart to the recommended open-faced wire wheel, which is used as a climbing “toy”. The smooth surface is more optimal for running, without the unnecessary and cumbersome larger size of a hedgehog bucket wheel.
This design is superior to store-bought wheels in every way - sturdier, much easier to clean, and absolutely silent.

Every wheel is unique! This product is handmade by a home business, therefore certain details may vary slightly. Minuscule inconsistencies in dimensions, a minor wobble, and scratches/scuffs are not considered “defects” - these are merely cosmetic and do not affect function.
Like any mechanical device, a little maintenance is sometimes necessary to ensure longevity and ideal function. A detailed maintenance sheet is included with every wheel, for reference information about cleaning, care of the hardware and bearings, and troubleshooting of minor problems that may arise (with a few video links for visual assistance). We are always available to assist, and can send a copy of the sheet if you misplace it!
