Regular Sola Ball 5cm+
$2.70 – $4.50 (inc GST)
Sola is the lightest wood in the world and is even softer than balsa! You can easily dint it with your fingernail. Parrots love chewing at the satisfying texture and tearing chunks out of it. Because they are so light, the balls can be easily held as foot toys by most parrots. Alternatively, you can thread onto wire or a skewer to make your own toy. You can also put these in your birds foraging tray or refillable holder toy (eg Hide n Seek, Buffet Ball or Baffle Cage). The sola is so soft, that it’s easy to poke a hole with a skewer, screwdriver or similar.
Check out the videos below (next to the reviews) to see and hear the satisfying crunch of the Sola, which has a similar texture to popcorn. Each Sola Ball measures between 5cm and 7.5cm in diameter. As a natural product each item does vary in size and colour. It is made from many thin sola stems, joined together by a short length of thin twine at the center. Supervision is recommended due to the inner thread (see picture).
Sola is safe for all parrot breeds though this Sola Ball is best suited to small and medium parrots. It is the second largest Sola item I stock and your large parrot will have a great time chewing on one, just don’t expect a piece to last too long once they discover the joy of tearing it into tiny pieces. Meanwhile, tiny birds will be intimidated by the size of the ball, so I would recommend the Sola Stems for them instead. See the Large Sola Ball for particularly large birds or smaller ones that love destroying this soft texture.
