It arrived in a lightweight, flat, innocuous-looking package. When I opened it, I practically had an attack. In a split second, the thing "magically" uncoiled to a length considerably beyond my expectations (easily 4 feet). I tried fitting it in my guinea pig's cage every which way and was about to give up on the idea. Then it occurred to me that the flexibility of the tube might facilitate use of it in a "roundabout," or semis-circular, way--just by removing everything else in the cage, then simply placing the tube on the floor of the cage and allowing it to curve around corners.
Sparky was initially unimpressed, limiting his activity to occupying the south entrance to the tube, stubbornly refusing to go in deeper. .But after a couple of nights he was navigating the course--entering at either end or the middle, and going from one hallway to the next. Right now a highlight of my day is approaching the cage each morning and trying to guess which part of the tube is harboring Sparky (his "wheek-ing" rarely gives away his position -- guinea pigs are some of the best "voice throwers" I've ever known).
I've had the tunnel for less than a week, and I'll be surprised if it lasts one full month. But these guys become pretty bored and lethargic if you don't change things up on them--especially if you're boarding them as a single. If this toy keeps Sparky entertained for another week, I'll feel that I got my money's worth (a month's supply of paper bedding costs upwards of $30.
[Surprise! This thing survived its first trip to the washing machine, emerging in flying colors (or at least red). It now looks and smells good as new. Guinea Pigs are not the brightest when it comes to controlling or aiming their BM deposits. It didn't seem to matter to Sparky that his bright red tunnel was serving as both an elongated bachelor's pad and an extra-convenient "poop tube." All the more reason to take this for a monthly spin in your Whirlpool (just make sure the guinea pig has been removed before pressing the START button).
1) Not much of a tunnel, more like a short tube;
2) Cheap lightweight flimsy material made in China, it will move around by itself if it's not attached to anything. If you have really timid bunnies, they may not like the idea of the floor moving underneath their feet; and
3) Can't really attach to anything else with the short strings sewed to one end of the tunnel and none on the other end.
4) The velcro straps meant to attach one tunnel to another, don't count on them. They are too short a strip and too low quality to link the tunnels up esp. with the weight and momentum of a bunny squeezing through them.
With the currency exchange rate between the two countries and the much lower labour cost in China, I would think Hagen can make a substantially longer tunnel with a larger diameter and better quality material without impacting the retail price and still make a decent profit. If not, they should probably find out where they are draining cash and optimise their supply chain.
For my active little guy, this tunnel is perfect. He's had it for a month and apparently is not tired of it yet. Multiple times every day he races in and back out, entering via either end of the tunnel or through the center opening. He hops over it, too. It keeps him nicely exercised. Sometimes, he picks it up and tries to toss it around, or he rolls it around with his front paws. Rarely does he actually hide or sleep in the tunnel, but maybe he dislikes the feel of plastic. Anyway, he has safer places to hide.
Yes the pig has my dog who loves to lay with them when we are right there.
