I returned the one I bought for my ferrets. They slide right out of them with their squeemish ways as they don't like things on them from what it seems, nor do they like being walked (they slide across the floor when I try to walk them).

My zoo: 2 Ferrets named Natira and McCoy and lots of different fishies, snails, and african dwarf froggies.

Actually wheels and balls are bad for rats. It's hard on the spine and the tail...

I'm not too sure about harnesses. I wouldn't try one. I've taken my rat out and he was comfortable enough to just hang on my shoulder.

Rats do love to be outside but the funny thing is (Lisa have you ever noticed this???) after a little while they want you to take them back in.

Yep! I have actually.Most (not all) of my rats enjoy being out in the fresh air and will either hang out in my pocket or shirt or sit on my shoulder.However when they wanna go back in,they get really restless and squirm alot.

My rats don't mind the harness at all
At first when I tried it on them they were like "wtf?? WTF is this?!" then they went around running & stealing from my room.

i use one with my rabbit

I have a lesh for him that he more leads me with. I have my hand through the lop and let him lead me around. I can't really lead him because it's more like dragging lol. I've never used them on my rats though. I can't see some of them keeping still enough for me lol. Zev seems to like his lesh though .

Guinea pig harnesses can hurt guinea pigs. Guinea pigs have VERY fragile bones, and it can hurt their back REALLY bad. If you look on any credible guinea pig site, it'll say that. If it doesn't, I wouldn't trust the information.
