well, today was a pretty bad degu day...i picked up another male to keep my current one company... they got along fine at first, but then something happened and they started fighting... and then i got them home and let them go free in my room and my degu started...um..trying to mate with the other male? the new degu was, needless to say, a but upset. i tried to pick him up, and he bit...hard. something the previous owner said has never happened... but then the both climbed back into the cage, sniffed each other, my degu continued to be very confused, and then it just errupted...my degu ran out limping...there wasn't blood or anything, and he used it to eat, but i'm not sure what, or how it happened... my main question is: is all hope lost? i spoke to a specialist and she told me to introduce them in a neutral area, but they both went into the cage and there was nothing i could do! i tried to grab my degu but they started fighting... my cage is very large, and theres no real way i can seperate it... what do i do?? help!
