What do you think of it? Thinking of getting one. Our smaller girl Marshmallow could probably fit into it. Elsa won't, but she could chew it.

Coconut houses are suitable for mice, gerbils, dwarf hamsters and small Syrians - even some larger Syrians are too big.

Lol better not then, don't want anyone getting stuck! Had that happen years ago with a couple of bucks when they didn't do proper plastic rat houses, just hamster ones. Then cube/triangle hammocks came along, sooo much more comfortable :)

You could get one for an enrichment toy, we have a couple that we put either shredded paper/material strips in or one with a smaller hole that food gets put in so they have to roll it about to get the treats out. Both the rats and the ferrets have coconut shell treat holders - gets a bit noisy at night though :lol:
