Baby Degus

We have two baby degus on display now that will be available for adoption in a few weeks. Degus are in the same family as Chinchillas and Guinea Pigs and share the characteristic of being born with their eyes open and furred unlike most rodents who are born bald and with their eyes closed. They are diurnal, meaning the are awake and active during the day, and do well on a diet of quality Chinchilla Pellets and Hay. They are extremely social and thrive in pairs and groups. They are about double the size of a gerbil and need a moderately sized cage with lots of room for climbing and jumping.

Although they can’t go home for a few weeks, we are currently accepting deposits.
