:) her wheel is rather small. My robo always used to run too fast in it, and I noticed over time it seemed to hurt her spine, and she started running like that. I then switched to a regular sized wheel, and she was fine running in it.

I tried to use the bigger wheel but she is still too small to make it go:(
but she always runs in it and then occasionally she will "strengthen her arm muscles." lol thats what Im calling it.

Hmmm, try using your finger to scoop all the bedding out from the bottom of the wheel and away from the sides to lessen the friction. I had to do that with Bo, my chinese dwarf hamster, because she was pretty tiny when I first got her. :)

I'm glad she likes them! My old teddy hamster Buddy used to love them. He'd go through them pretty quickly!
She's adorable, I love the video of her!

I had a hamster that used to make his nest inside the wheel. Then he couldn't run on it.
