A few days ago, I adopted two 2 year old degu males. One is very active, is eating and drinking
. The other, however, is much heavier, far more reluctant to run in the wheel, eats and chews on wood but I have yet to see him drink ANY water
. I have tried a bottle, and a container, tap and bottled water and I still haven't seen him take a sip.
Should I be concerned? His teeth seem normal (orange) but he chews and eats like crazy, and also does this weird thing where he looks like he's stretching his jaw once and a while...
Thank you all for your help! These are my first degus
and I am uncertain as to what is normal and what I should worry about...
