Rat Lava Ledge

Intro: Rat Lava Ledge

I haven't found any DIY rat lava ledges on the web. So, here's a DIY rat lava ledge.

Step 1: Step 1: Materials

What you'll need:

- Paint Brush

- 1 or more toilet paper roll

- Non-toxic paint 2 colours

- Nut and Bolt

- Hot glue gun

- Hot glue sticks

-Sand

- Plate or something to put paint on

Step 2: Step 2

First, bent one side of the toilet paper roll (Picture on the left).

Then at the crease paint a line with one of your colours.

Pour some paint on your plate and add some sand. Keep on adding sand until the consistency is rough like sandpaper.

Step 3: Step 3: Painting

Paint your toilet paper under the line you painted earlier.

After that drys undo folds and paint a second coat of normal paint on the first.

Then, paint the top part of your toilet roll that isn't painted the second colour.

Step 4: Step 4: Assembleing

Take the Nut and glue the end.

Then, push the ends together and hold it until it drys.

Then glue the extra part of the cardboard together.

You're DONE!

Now just screw it on and boom a DIY lava ledge

    Do these animals run loose in the house? Or is this thing mounted inside a cage? I think these instructions are incomplete. You should get an intelligent 10-year-old to follow the steps the next time you write a set of instructions.

    Sorry-- I couldn't tell from the pic. My daughter's gerbil had the run of the house, so she would have loved this.
