    I recently adopted 2 young degus. They are not even both full-grown yet, and are both males. I have been trying to socialize them but I keep getting bitten whenever I pick them up... and of course it hurts with those sharp little rodent teeth! I have tried picking them up with a cloth and even a...

    Hello, I am a new pet owner of Degus and we have a male and a female. They never knew each other but they don't seem to fight a lot. I don't know how to tell if they are playing fighting or actually fighting. Also, when I speak or pet Lucy, she squeaks a soft squeak. I looked it up online and...

    I have always used chinchilla dust for our degus, but was just wondering if beach sand would be ok for them, from a clean beach? I have heard its a bit courser and maybe less absorbent... but maybe I could use it from time to time, alternating with the chinchilla sand... or mixed with it? just...

    As you may have read in my previous thread,my best friend was going to give me a baby female Degu.But today,sadly,it passed away :(.I think she was mistreating them or hadn't done enough research on Degus. But anyway, I had already started building a cage for it, and so now,I am looking for a...

    I was thinking earlier today, and had a very particular question pop into my head. When a female degu is pregnant, is it harder to see the vaginal opeing due to the vaginal plug, or does it cease to make any time of visual difference?

I put my trust in him, until I noticed my degu, Dexter, start to gain a bit of weight around the core...
