Versatile bowl for sand bathing or as a food bowl
Many rodents maintain their coats by bathing in fine sand – this helps to absorb excess oils and keeps the skin healthy and the coat thick and glossy. Particularly suitable vessels for bathing sand are low, partially glazed terracotta bowls with inward curving top edges like this one: If the bowl’s diameter is slightly larger than the pet’s body length, the pet can roll outstretched in it and spread the sand through his entire coat. During this dust bath the curved sides help to keep as much of the sand as possible from being spilled over the edges – straight sides would need to be rather higher to have the same effect.
