Paint Roller Tray
Available at any local store or dollar store
I love these because they create a deep end and a shallow end, allowing your rats to decide how deep they want to go!
You can use other containers too!
It's important to choose a container that holds water without leaking and won't tip over easily
Frozen peas, dried mealworms, cereal, etc
1. I recommend putting a towel down first and placing the paint roller tray or container on top.
2. Fill with water.
If using the paint roler tray, fill all the way. If using a different container, fill with 1-2 inches of water.
3. Toss in your rats favorite treats
4. Add rats and let them play!
