Guinea pigs like their extra space
on 22 March 2016
Great for the price but a few caveats.
Some guinea pigs will be fine with this run, others won't as it's rather short. Ours are old and don't tend to want to escape from spaces so they were fine. They're not climbers or jumpers.
1) Closures - It's all too easy for the run to fall apart as you're trying to slot the sides together. It's designed as a tooth and eyelet closure. I attempted to bend the tooth around with pliers to make more eyelets but it bends poorly and chips off the plastic coating.
2) Unable to fold it when fastened - Due to the design of the closures, it doesn't lend well to be folded up when fastened. You have to unslot every side to lie it flat.
3) Plastic coating flakes off easily - Be wary if your pet is a nibbler!
Overall this was a good buy for our needs but it's far from perfect. Great for the price but would probably invest in something more sturdy in the future.
