I was wondering if it was okay for rats to chew on cork. The reason I ask is because I paint miniature figurines and sometimes mount them on a cork base. I had some unpainted cork on my workbench and Oreo started chewing on it. I was pleased with the results and was thinking about putting a big piece in their cage so they can work their random magic chewing on it making it look more like a natural rock formation.

Austin, do you mean the ad at the very top of the page? It seems to be a generic one from the website she uses as a host and not much she can do about it... It doesn't seem very risqué to me

I apologize for the offensive web ad. This is a new problem within the last few days and is being addressed by the webmaster. I completely forgot about that and again I sincerely apologize to anyone who was offended. I've removed the link.

Actually the miniatures are made of pewter and some are plastic. None of those ones are on a cork base but one I'm working now on is.

When cork gets wet does it expand like plywood does? I can't remember. If it does I'd worry, else, they'll probably just shred it.

Here is the link again:


It's not actually my webpage so I have no control over the content. It's just a host page for painted miniatures.

I pulled the link again, I'm sorry... but if there are pornographic ads that pop up it isn't appropriate for our younger members. Could you please give the link via PM?

Roger that, understood. Being 34teen (I don't use the 'F' word) myself I sometimes forget about the younger readers here.

Actually I'm a he, not a she 8O. No offense meant or taken, you had no way of knowing.


Well now that this thread has nothing to do with rats I found a safer way to carve the cork without using rats.

Actually it might be best to delete this thread altogether. But I do like the idea of giving wine corks to my rats to play with. The wife can help in that deparment.
