Universal Clip On Handling Tube

Manufacturer Brand Image

Research has shown that picking up mice by the tail induces aversion and high anxiety and generally should be avoided.

Patented by Datesand, these Clear Handling Tubes come with integral clips to allow attachment to any cage bars.  The clips are universal and allow the tunnel to be fitted either along the length of the cage or across it for full flexibility

Although handling tunnels do not have to be present in the home cage to be effective, having a handling tunnel in the home cage increases recognition of a familiar safe site as well as providing cage enrichment.

The elevated handling tube promotes natural climbing and investigation behaviours of mice.  It will also provide a safe retreat for mice and a raised platform in the unlikely event of cage flooding.
