Degus also require a specialized diet, need alot of cage space (as bluedreamer pointed out), and many have genetic issues like diabetes, cataracts, and the dreaded malocclusion. If you are an experienced pet enthusiast with alot of space, plenty of time to spare and a big budget, then yes, degus are awesome. (Please consider adopting at least a pair – they are very social and need other degu company, the more the merrier – from an animal shelter.)

Now gerbils, they're easy and fun.
