My family are in the UK and we have 4 male degus. We bought them in April, having had hamsters, rats, mice, guinea pigs, gerbils ...... We are all rodent lovers but my son wanted something that lived a bit longer, so we did some research and found out about degus. Unfortunately, we have terrible trouble telling them apart - they all have names but it is really difficult to tell who's who! They are extremely active and very funny at times but very annoying to feed - they don't really like much apart from the Gerty Guinea Pig and Charlie Chinchilla (with the raisins picked out!)
I'm not very good at this forum thing, so I won't have any pretty pictures or anything. Do tell us about your degus.
