Before I got on this website I bought a metal wheel for my baby and she seems to like it, are they really unsafe? How important is it that I get a different one??? <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/heartpump.gif" alt="" />

Metal wheel? you talking about one of the smaller ones that you buy for a hamster? Does it have the bar in the middle? If so, yes, they are very dangerous as gliders have gotten thier tails caught on that bar.

You might consider going to a Stealth Wheel as they are safe, quiet and very affordable. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/thumb.gif" alt="" />

With the metal wheels, most will have a bar in the middle of them AND a metal stand that attaches to either side that can catch their tails when they run on them. If you look at the design of the Stealth wheels, the stand is BEHIND the wheel where their tails can not catch and there is no center bar that their tails can get tangled around.

Any metal wheel is dangerous for a sugar glider..they are not PVC coated and can rust and or cause UTI's. They can break their legs and arms and neck in those. Also tails can get broken ...some have died from the metal wheels. Please get a Stealth wheel..they are made for sugar gliders...
