Say hello to Quinny and Beebo!
They're living in a smaller, wired cage until we finish with their big cage. They're two little boys, very bright and tame. Quinn (or Quinny) is more jumpy and always looking around and climbing, while Beebo is softer and usually just sits and ponders, or climbs around and eats. Both are very small, however, Beebo is the smallest. Quinny has bits of blond and gray in his fur, and the only way I can tell them apart is that Quinny is bigger and grayer. It suprises me how intelligent they are--when I gave them their wheel, they used their hands to spin it around and wondered what the heck it could be for, and they use their dust "bath" for a litter box, too. They're always alert and look at me when I call them, and sometimes run to the door. I had them out in the box/play pen, and they'd let me pick them up, scooping them from the bottom instead of grabbing, of course, and they'd also surprisingly grab onto my hand and climb up onto my shoulder. Then, of course, they'd use that as a way of getting out of the box. xD I don't feel good about letting them run around the room yet, like Dehgoo (my friend's degu is apparently called that). I'll just wait until they're tamer, bigger, and the room is more degu-proof.
Oh, and do you want some pictures? Blah, I can't take any good ones that capture their cuteness. The ones in my signature are the best.
Anyway, these little buggers love being rubbed under the chin and behind the ears, and love hay. They just can't stop eating it! I can't way to get to know them even more...I drove 6 hours just to get them, so I know it'll be worth it! They have the brightest eyes and biggest ears, too. They seem to have sparkles in their fur. o_O
