Raw hide can expand in their digestive tracks and cause blockages. I wouldn't chance it... try the wooden ones instead. :)

By rawhide, do you mean the leather strappy type bird toys? :) They are fine. My rats love to chew them up! I usually have at least two of those rope/leather type toys in the cage at all times.

raw hide, like the thing a dog would chew isnt good. i work at a pet store and we warn people about over doing raw hide with dogs...so imagine a rat with it. its hard for them to digst and too much can result in constipation, majo blockage, and no good stuff.
