Rolling balls are not good for guinea pigs, and most won't even run in them. Guinea pigs don't have a very flexible spine, so they can easily brake their spine by running in them. There is also a chance of their toes getting caught in the slits. Please don't. Those balls are only made that size so that the manufacturers can get more money.

Yes I agree they are bad. They hurt their backs and they are helpful at all. Having them some floortime they like lots better. They like running around and being in new enviroments. They would like that much more. And it's a lot safer.
