Species-appropriate small animal toys: fun and action in the small animal home
All species of small animals have something in common: they are clever and love toys. Without intelligence, mice, rabbits, hamsters and co. would have less chance of survival in the wild. Rats are even considered to be the most intelligent of small animals. It is quite clear that they need exciting stimulation in order not to languish. Small animal toys are available from AniOne and other brands.
Which small animal toy is particularly suitable?
Activity can be fostered with appropriate small animal toys. Try it out and design an attractive small animal playground:
- Play equipment: Small animals can occupy themselves on their own with the right toys. These are primarily things that resemble their natural habitat. Hiding places are particularly popular: Hay tunnels, small animal houses, tubes and, of course, digging material are very popular, especially with smaller animals. In addition, there are ladders, bridges, seesaws and towers made of natural wood, which the animals can climb and from which they can keep a lookout. You can set up real adventure playgrounds for small animals and enjoy the hustle and bustle.
- Snack balls: plastic balls filled with delicacies or balls with tasty contents are a popular toy for all small animals.
- Action food: Not just served in a bowl, but hidden in the enclosure, only reachable with physical effort or perhaps even a mental effort, this way even feeding becomes a game. Old paper rolls and small boxes that the animals are allowed to gnaw are suitable hiding places for much sought-after treats.
What games can you play with small animals?
Do you want to interact with your small animal? Maybe your rabbit is a bunny hop champion. With plenty of praise and treats, many rabbits can be persuaded to negotiate a small course. If the animal is more of a clever sleuth, an intelligence toy offers variety and in these toys, the small animal can find a hidden treat. You can teach tame guinea pigs, rats and mice all kinds of tricks. The most important thing is to never force the animal to do anything. The game is only fun if the animal is self-motivated.
