I went to PetCo today to use a coupon on fish supplies, and I ended up finding what I think is a most ingenious rat toy!

It's a bird toy (Lucky Bird Toys), technically, but it's this super strong feeling plastic (bullet proff, they insist... tell me, who shoots at bird toys? I've heard of clay pidgeons, but I think this is taking it a little far!), in the shape of a treasure chest, maybe four inches long and two inches high. On the sides are cutout shapes about three quarters of an inch wide, triangle, square, etc, and inside are little shapes of wood. The whole thing can hang on a chain.

It's the perfect place to stash a few treats, fresh veggies or whatnot, and make the ratties work a little for their food! Something to keep them entertained for a bit. And it looks heavy duty enough to withstand some chewing, too.

Course, I don't have my rats yet, so it hasn't been tested, but I'll be sure to update when I know.

Just thought I'd share. It's on sale right now, too. Or at least, it is in Grand Forks, North Dakota.

Oh, and the price I got it for at PetCo was $5.98, regularly $9.99, and it' s $8.75 from the website. So it's a pretty decent sale right now!

I assume it's the greenish clear box thingy. Looks like a lot of fun! I'd probably wanna get in and play too, I fit in our rat cage, haha!

the bullet proofness is because anything less, and your bird would rip the thing apart. I've seen used bird toys, and those birds don't play nice ;D

I actually have this... and they do love it.

I doesn't get "played with" a lot, though, but they use it. I hang mine in an area where they cannot reach it (even though they manage) and they spend a good deal of time figuring out how to get to it.

Glad to hear it's a rattie hit! Yeah, I kind of figured it would be a good thing to hang in an inconvenient place, and fill with little treats. Let them figure it out!
