Embla’s first time in the ball. Since he can’t (and won’t) use a wheel, I’m looking at other ways to make him exercise a little more. I managed to find a huge ball so we tried it out yesterday. I am usually against these things for African pygmies because their toes can get caught in the slits but his paws are much bigger so I’m less concerned about injuries. I also think it takes away their natural burrowing/hiding behaviour, but in his case I was hoping it might actually encourage him and make him feel more protected. He is curious & loves to run around but very skittish as well so it would be nice for him to be able to explore a little.
He seems to get the hang of moving the ball around pretty quickly and it looks like it’s giving him a bit more confidence as well!
