  1. Degu Discussion
    Hi there I just recently got a couple of rescue degu's. I'm new to degu's though not to rodents. I also have hamsters and gerbils. I am finding that the degu's are very inquisitive, but are nibblers. It's usually okay, and sometimes they will groom my hand but my one degu, Nutmeg, has taken to...
  2. Gerbil & Hamster Discussion
    I have 2 young gerbils (males) named Louie and Moe. I got them a few weeks ago and they are so cute! However, I don't feel like I'm doing a great job of taming them. they don't like being handled and always try to squirm away when I hold them. Sometimes they even nip me(it doesn't hurt very...

  7. Mouse & Rat Discussion
    Georgina was a rescue. she was in the back room of the pet store in a tiny critter keeper housed alone and extremely nervous. today i managed to pick her up without her running away so that put our handling session started on a positive note. I wrapped her in a flanner blanket and sat down and...
