Key features

The Barnes maze consists of a circular table with 18 (rats) or 40 (mice) circular holes around the circumference of the table at an equal distance from each other and from the center of a table. Under each hole there is a slot for a box, called the drop box, or a smaller size false drop box. False drop boxes are required to make all holes visually indistinguishable.

Flat arena is easily detached from the supporting stand to allow compact storage.

Both rat and mice arenas are compatible with the same stand.
