Thank you for all your help.
I dont mind lifespan, I would prefer longer if given choice.
I have looked into Rats but for some reason they dont appeal to me, I dont mind them but maybe I want something bigger or more unsual. Maybe its the persona surround rats.
I am fine with something a little more complicated as with Lizards you need to ensure they have the correct supplements, enough calcium, right temperature, correct level of UV etc.
I just read that with Prairie Dogs and Sugar Gliders you need to weight the food, for eg 5gs of this and 10gs of that which is too much work.
As for handling I dont mean like a cuddle, its more just like with the Lizards, lifting them out, giving them a stroke and watching them interact with the room.
I am currently swaying more to Degus, Im thinking of 3 females.
I know they need dust baths and certain food with treats.
