    The rat was about 99 degrees so I kinda doubt that was the problem? But I could be wrong lol.

    True. I'll keep it in mind for next time. I don't actually own a hairdryer bc I have short hair and my roommate is apparently just an air-dry kinda gal, so I'll have to see if I can find a cheap one .

    Some pics from the past few days :3



    Added some more stuff to her tub today -- I found this awesome wooden bridge that should give her some added enrichment, since it has varied textures and climbing surfaces. I can tell she's gained a lot of muscle around the neck from when I got her, and I'd like to say that's because of how much she climbs. But, who knows? That's just an educated guess based on observation.



    Can you spot the noodle?

    I also keep her on a timed UVB light, so she has a good day/night schedule and access to a full spectrum light, so more enrichment there! Plus all the ground cover. I've never seen her dig, but I don't know if that's because she's not interested in digging or if I haven't provided enough room for her to dig. Probably the latter. I plan on trying some stuff over the winter and seeing how she likes it.

    Exactly 20 minutes before her light turns off, there she goes:




    Tonight's feeding night, and she knows it!

    EDIT: and in case you couldn't spot the noodle, there she is!

    Thank you! It's burlap -- I found a roll cheap at Walmart and stuck some eyelets in the corners, then threaded gardening wire through to hook it on. So, even if she messes it up I can just make a new one easy.

    As for the bridge ladder, I just looked in the small animal/bird section on Amazon until I found something reptile-safe. Was tempted by those suspended coconut hides, but maybe next time .

    Mind sharing a link? Most of the items are just listed as "natural wood" without any other specifics of what type of wood. Just wanna make sure it's not pine or cedar. Cute idea btw thank you!! <3
