Would any other type of nuts work??? I think ive got some penuts and some other nuts that my bird wont eat so ill try using them once ive built it.

this is kinda late but i used a pecan because it is easy to tie a string around it

@Clader 1 - It would be amazing if someone made one that could trap a Dog. Off cousre the trap would be very heavy so the Dog can't around in it and tip it over and also it would require loads and loads Knex pieces
