Degus at Alaska Zoo
Just thought I would share some pictures of the degus at the alaska zoo. They were confiscated from a family in Soldotna Alaska in 2004 and taken to the zoo. It was a mother and her babies. There are a total of 8 degus at the zoo today, because they were not fixed, mamma had another litter after arriving at the zoo. (they are fixed now!) Mamma is the largest degu, and thats the only one we can tell apart from the rest. So none except her have names. We were thinking of marking them in some way, but havent gotten around to it.
They lived in a crappy little cage until 2006 when my dad and I built them a Huge new home! I have pictures of the before cage and after cage. Im thinking of building my chinnies a cage similar to this someday too. =)
I love these little degus, they are adorable! =)
