MATERIAL OF THE WHEEL
What is the best material? Wood, Metal, Plastic? It is important with an exercise wheel for a chinchilla that it is gnaw-proof. Aluminum is gnaw-resistant, easy to clean and lasts a long time.
DO NOT WASH RUNS IN WATER
For all running wheels it is not good to rinse them completely under the tap. It is very important that the turning mechanism (ball bearing) does not get wet. The more often the turning mechanism is rinsed, the stiffer it becomes and can therefore squeak and run stiffer.
A running wheel can become more equal over time. For a squeaky running wheel, we recommend a drop of olive oil. This can be attached to the turning mechanism.
