Bamboo tile

I got my hands on some free bamboo tile samples for use in my bunny pen. They arrived quicker than I could do plenty of research into the safety of them. Bamboo shouldn't harm her if I wash them well, right?? My main concern is if she chewed them? Does anyone know??


As a side note, Acacia seems to be the only bunny in the world who DONT like Oxbow pellets!! I caught her everyday picking out the Martins from the Oxbow as my intention was to gradually switch her over. After this Oxbow bag I guess I'll be buying Martins again!! lol

Bamboo itself (even in tile-form) is perfectly safe...but I would be concerned about the stains and sealants used on them....if you do not know, or cannot find out, I would be hesitant to risk it.

They call came with stickers saying the finisher/ sealant. There's at least 1 that is plain, nothing on it. And can the sealants be soaked and scrubbed off? I heard bamboo tile is flexible and easily worn down

Go with coarse grit....properly-treated bamboo is pretty hard,, and you will have to sand deep enough to remove any soaked-in stain/sealant.
