Gerbil Water Bottle

My 18 year old son has two Gerbil's which keep on chewing through their water bottle's, not sure how many they have got through now, but he put one in the cage last night and they have already chewed three hole in it, Does anyone know if you can get metal drink bottles for them? He's tried bowls but they just cover them up with the wood chips!

They are just being ungrateful, if you manage to find a metal water bottle wire it up to the mains ..... that should stop them[url=http://www.freesmileys.org/smileys.php]http://www.freesmileys.org/smileys/smiley-devil10.gif[/URL]

You'll probably have more luck finding a glass one rather than metal.

Not got a gerbil but got a hamster.....little critters chew cos they are bored silly. Can they actually get water out of the bottle ?is it at the right angle and height?

I asked this exact question at the pet shop this week - but because the rabbits keep doing the same thing

YES you can get metal ties!

I went into Pets at home

The pet store said about the rabbits that they may be attention seeking lol - I thought only men and kids did that

They can get to the water if they don't chew holes in the bottle's, but honest they are nutter's:w00t: doesn't matter what you put in there they go nut's with it, the amount of loo, kitchen towel, and gift wrap tubes that get put in there! just chew! chew!

micoo has a good point tho ...how are they chewing the actual bottle if it is outside the cage ?the metal bit with the ball bearing goes through the bar and the other bit is way out of reach normally

Yes, bottles are in the cage! they either chew the plastic bit that holds the nossle or the bottle itself, he built them a long cage out of MDF, with a glass front to it, and MDF and wire top, It looks realy good. But after about 8 months, he had to tile the floor as they we digging there way out the bottom:w00t: LOL

They do both!:x

My sister said her bottle is glass, and that her rabbit chews through the ties - that's why I asked! The Pet shop said to buy metal ties.

She's been giving her rabbit a bowl of water - but it gets pretty messed up

I just found one on a gm.tv website and have ordered that, but cant find the page again now was going to put the web page on here for others, if I can find it again I will, Ha, found it! I know it's plastic, but as it's rounded they might not be able to chew it, but they might get the top bit, Not sure about if you can get metal tiles though

Don't know if you can get it any bigger for rabbits!

WTF A SOLID TUBE

tube (tb, tyb)

a. A hollow cylinder, especially one that conveys a fluid or functions as a passage.
b. An organic structure having the shape or function of a tube; a duct: a bronchial tube.
2. A small flexible cylindrical container sealed at one end and having a screw cap at the other, for pigments, toothpaste, or other pastelike substances.
