I want to know what you guys think about this. I was thinking you could take a short clear plastic tube that's used for hamsters and cap off one end. Then fill up the tube with substrate, and for the last few inches, fill it halfway lengthwise, then bury that at an angle in the substrate. If the T so chooses, it could burrow deeper if it wanted to. The tube would also provide the structural support to prevent the substrate from collapsing on the T while it's in the burrow. What do you think?

I use clear plastic tubes like that. More flexable then hamster habittrails.
And they Do use it.
Least ours do.
Works fine.

I don't really see what could cause the plastic to crack. The substrate isn't really heavy, at least, not for one of those plastic tubes, I don't think. Unless I'm overlooking some possible cause. Either way, I suppose it's worth a try.
