Help needed with a new Degu.
Hi, this is my first post and am hoping that someone can help, i had 2 degus and sadly one of them died 2 nights ago, knowing that degus get depressed on their own i found someone local who was selling their degus
i introduced her to the old degu and they seemed to get on ok apart from the dominence bit. anyway, all the new degu seems to do is sit in the corner until anyone goes near her then she will find another corner.
the woman i got her from was keeping 4 degus in a tiny hamster cage without toys and none looked like they were handled often. would love to have taken them all but 3 were boys so obviously she could be pregnant. anyway, my question is, is this normal behaviour? is there anything i can do to make her more comfortable in her new home?
thanks in advance
