Proper rodent enrichment as outlined by animal care councils and IACUC protocols increase health, well-being, breeding, and social interaction in group housing. Tubes are recognized as effective rodent enrichment devices. The Transfer Tube can be used as a hiding place or tunnel handling. The stainless-steel tube provides a darkened area that reduces stress and calms rodents. The 4” diameter tube is large enough for rodents like rats. Made of rust-proof stainless-steel, this enrichment device satisfies IACUC standards for universities, laboratories, research facilities as well as animal care guidelines used in zoos and other public attractions. The Transfer Tube is suitable for gerbils, deer mice, cotton rats, rice rats, multimammate rats, spiny mice, degus, voles, and other rodents.
