"This actually has an extended warranty, it's one of their top end products. They installed this carpet, this material into a rhino cage for two weeks," Lacey says.
You heard right - the company claims it put the carpeting in a cage with Rikko the Rhino and left it there for two weeks with Rikko doing - well, everything rhinos do.
"Then they cleaned the carpet after two weeks, and sure enough, it was as good as new...so, it's meant to endure, it's not meant to break down," Lacey says.
