I have no idea about getting them in the UK. I've only seen them for sale in small numbers around here in the US. My guess would be that they've been imported from some place that only recently opened its border for the pet trade, like the Ukraine.
They don't get anywhere near the size of a degu, about the size of a dwarf hamster. They even look similar to dwarf hamsters at a glance, but their care is quite different - as is their temperment.

Wrapped in all of the promises, that no one seems to keep.
