I work with the Give More campaign which launched last week, a 12 month campaign to encourage people to give more money, time or energy to charitable causes in the next year and to get us all talking more about giving. You can find out more about the campaign here: givemore.org.uk.

How many gerbils (and what genders)?
I have fairly extensive knowledge of gerbil husbandry (after researching for a year), and for a while now I've been wanting to keep some. The space I have for them is a 2ft x 2ft x 2ft hutch-like enclosure, part of something I'm building.
In volume, this...
I rescue rodents such as rats, hamsters and mice,, if they are friendly enough I may find a home for them or add them to my colony, if they are not friendly or in poor health I deal with them the most humanely possible,, I live in college station tx, I also breed rats to offset the cost of...
i'm new here, but i've read a good number of threads on these forums already prior to joining. most are really informative and filled with nice people with similar interests to myself, so i thought i'd join!
as a person i don't talk terribly much, but i must say that i love all animals.
Thinking of getting this:
I know it's suitable for hamsters, but what else could live happily in here?
DIMENSIONS: 115 x 60.5 x 58 cm OR 45 x 24 x 23 inches (L x W x H)
WOOD THICKNESS: 1 - 2 cm OR 0.5 - 1 inch
MESH SPACING: 1.2 cm or 0.5 inches
This may sound like an odd request, but I'm trying to compile a list of rodents often kept as pets. So far I have:
African Pygmy Dormice
Gambian Pouched Rats
The adaption of small rodents to pets is truly a wonderful thing. Many animals make great pets, but none are as compelling as the small rodents. Unfortunately you cannot take the instincts out of the animal. This can mean that they respond to loud noises by hiding. Hiding in a tube or hut can...
I, like the rest of you, am an animal lover.
During my younger years I was consistantly finding some sort of temperary pet (frog and toad tadpoles being a big one) to play with. I started out growing up with four cats and a dog.
The only pet left from that group is my cat Sydney (who is...

I know that rodents will nibble on your finger to taste you and check that you are not food. What does it mean if my gerbil does this tasting thing first, them calmly bites hard. It's not hard enough to bleed, but it sure hurts!
We collected our 2 male degus yesterday after doing a lot of research, however i still have a couple of questions.
1. my degus are currently asleep (it's 3pm here), i am a little concerned as i heard degus were diurnal and should be awake during the day could any one give any information on...
