Should I get my rat a wheel?


Yes, if you want to. But be sure to get a larger one as he grows. Large rats will need 11" chinchilla wheels (MJC). A wheel rat WILL get a curved tail. Not all rats will take to a wheel, but if it does it will use it a lot. Beware of wire wheels as feet and tails may be injured. Sheet metal style wheels are best.
One place to order good wheels of a rat safe design is from Wodent Wheel.
