I don't use wood blocks but my rats do have wooden toys to chew on. A bird perch and a dangling bird toy, and they had another dangling bird toy but that's been reduced to a small metal bar with a bell hanging from it XD and they make short work of their plastics, too.
Dont quote me on this:
I think Pine and Cedar are the 2 that are not safe for rats, you can go to petsmart, they have rat safe wood chewes there....lol if this question were directed towards Gliders, I would be able to tell you exactly.
Are there any toys or other stimulation in the cage? She may be bored. Something wood to chew on is great, as is other stimulating things. Cardboard boxes, toilet paper tubes with treats inside, and then folded up like a "present", hanging bird toys, cat/ping pong balls, crumpled up pieces of paper, and other such things may help.
lay 3-5 sheets of paper on top of each other, put a pile of yummie treats and things in the middle, pull all of the sides up and tie with a rope, or piece of fleece and hang in the cage where she can just barley reach it with her paws...it keeps my guy busy all night!
YES they require more room. I have 5 glider cages, all above 4.5 feet tall and 3 feet wide. They take alot more than rats do, diet, space, toys and such. My oldest glider is 4 years, my very first one, a little boy, Scooter. And much like rats, once you have one....you MUST have more lol. I used to "hobby" breed them 9 babies in total (most in great homes, some still here)
I have 4 rats, 3 boys and 1 girl (Two 11 month olds, One 6-7 week and One 7-8 week old)
I just looked on that rat thing about rat toys ect - i just used a unused bandanna and made a lil rat rope and it guards the door to the cage to
I also got a webcam box - took out the paper took of the clear plastic that lets u see the webcam on display so there was a nice built in hole - filled the box with 2 types of my ratties bedding put it in there ..now ratatouille is exploring it
