Am I imagening things?!? How good hearing do they really have?
Dear all. I know that degus have really good hearing abilities. I am wondering just how good their hearing is...
This has happened many times now. I can be lying in bed, all is quiet, for like 10 minutes. The door is closed and there is a hallway before you get to the living room, where my degu family lives. Then I turn around to get up and they start squeking! Hehe. It happened again yesterday. I was sitting in the kitchen reading a book, door closed, all silent. Then I flipped a page that made a sound, I could almost not hear it myself, and the squeking started again. As I said this has happened many times. I can be behind closed doors and make a small noise, and they react to it on the other end of the apartment. Am I just being paranoid, or are their hearing abilities really this good?
