Default Whimzees or Antos?

Because Willow is such a reluctant chewer and I've heard that most hams love them, I'm thinking of either getting some Antos toothbrushes or Whimzees alligators, but I have some questions about them first:

1) Which shape do Syrians prefer?
2) Which flavour do they prefer?
3) Small, medium or large?

Whimzees and Antos are practically the same product, so I wouldn't worry too much about which ones you get. Flavours all the same too, just different colours.

My Syrian gets the small or medium ones.

Sweep prefers the crocodiles for some reason! He likes to attck it first before taking to his nest where he will snuggle it for a couple of days before he eats it! (He's a little odd ...) He doesn't like the green toothbrushes at all though! He's not that keen on the white ones either ... So basically he likes the brown ones!
They also come in frogs and hedgehogs though the hedgehogs are quite big!

Pinkneon, I think the green toothbrushes are algae flavoured so that may be why

Whimzees and Antos are practically the same and come in the similar shapes. I normally like to buy the hedgehogs or alligator (they look really cute) in the sizes medium or large as they last longer especially for a Syrian. Or I buy the medium size toothbrushes
My hamsters have like all the colours and I thought this would use useful regarding the ingredients (Natural Ingredients | WHIMZEES | Natural Dog Treats) - (the green ones are alfalfa not algae)

I've realised that now I was actually talking about the toothbrushes (Antos) - on VioVet it says the green is algae and the the other colours are the standard (vegetable) ones

I've just seen what you mean regarding Antos toothbrushes on viovet, so I'm a little confused, but looking on the Antos website although they do not have an ingredients list they show their algae Eurostar chews which look like a pale green colour (like this Algae Eurostar Assorted Large (26.5cm) - Antos - 100% Natural Dog Treats & Chews since 2004 EDIT - looking around on the Internet and they used to do a toothbrush one which were this pale green colour Buy ANTOS ALGAE TOOTHBRUSH 50'S Online at Pets Direct).

Someone else may know for sure what the Antos green ones ingredients are.

I get the mini sized ones - just right for a hamster I think - not quite as big as them but big enough to be funny when they drag it in their house I've had the alligators and toothbrushes (the antos ones from viovet).

Charlie went crazy for all of them but wouldn't touch the white/beige ones - I thought those were the algae ones. He slightly preferred the toothbrushes, which got chewed more.
