Degu Moe Anderson checks to see if his brother Jack is waiting around for his
turn at the wheel.
While not generally recommended for gerbils, Scooter Biondi is an exception (no upper front teeth). A grand old lady, Scooter enjoys her wheel in spite of an arthritic rear leg. Run on, Scooter!
Willow, the camera-shy degu, enjoys her wheel on a timeshare basis.
You've seen the photos, now check out Willow and Pumpkin in their first
Bizie Callis checks out a Wobust wheel that's been modified with larger holes to accomodate a prairie dog's... errr... muscular, yeah - that's it, muscular hips.
Jig, Basil, and Levau Cutright check out their wheel...
Prairie dogs Fine and Dandy Sterns in a sharing mood...
Prairie dog pups Digger (on the left) and Sunny Sawyer (on the right) check out their brand new toy.
Zelda Eisenhardt, a beautiful short-tail opossum, enjoys scampering along
in her wheel..
While there're certain, ah... tradeoffs, when combining chinchillas and Wodent wheels, Amber gets a TON of usage out of hers. (And soon she'll get those entry holes just right...)
Poncho Lenz takes a carrot break.
Fancy mouse Lily Pokorny runs like crazy...
Mouse Hocus Livingston (of the famous Hocus and Pocus team) trys out his new wheel.
Richardson Ground Squirrel Nutmeg pauses her workout long enough to strike a pose. Mother Deborah acknowledges that Nutmeg looks mostly like dad, but insists that she has her eyes.
Willie Blankenship, the brand-new prairie dog, enjoys that "new wheel smell" from his Woobenesque. Ahhh...
XXX is among the lucky 50% of Leopard Geckos who seem to really love wheel walking. (The other 50% just don't see the point...)
Little Gray, a gerbil, got her Wodent Wheel after she lost her left
eye in a freak accident and couldn't use her wire wheel without
falling out. Unfortunately, she's found additional ways to enjoy it...
Anyway, Little Gray, Big Sister and Wobbles all say three paws WAY, WAY UP!
While generally not known for wheel-running, guinea pig Pippin Hoye finds that wheels also make perfectly fine hideouts. Plus, there's food close by.
Degus Nipper and Chipper Sapp actually seem more interested in running side-by-side than in chewing. It can happen.
This sad situation is what happens when a negligent gerbil-mom forgets to teach her kids basic wheel-destroying skills. Their new foster-mom says, "We've obviously got a lot of catching-up to do, but I'm confident it's only a matter of time..." (Yes, that is a coconut.)
Raydar, a snow corn snake, loves to climb her new trellis...
Coco the squirrel stays in her wheel a lot, but she'll come out for a treat. (Or if she even THINKS Mom has a treat for her.)
The Lafond triplets are three young, bushy-tailed jirds.
Kiri is part of a duprasi pair. Rather chubby, short legged, and no climbing skills to speak of - but they do like digging and wheel running. (And, of course, are very cute.)
Running style seems to consist of alternating bursts of speed followed by rocking back-and-forth.
Swiss degus, Flash, Bob, Sugus and Arthur are very well behaved and haven't even destroyed their wheels (yet). And why risk messing up their excellent castle?
