Eric, David the Degus around 6 years old. They are well handled and very inquisitive. They love their food and enjoy a wide variety of items. More than their food they love their wheel and it never stops all day. Fortunately they are not nocturnal so peace comes of a night. They are all great, unique, characters and provides hours of entertainment. They do need a large, multi layer cage and also benefit from being out and about.
They love their breakfast and come up to look what is on offer as soon as their cage is open. Please see their video and here (sadly Guy died recently, we hope to be able to bond George with this two sometime in the future.
This pair can come with a cage which would be suitable as long as they get out and about on a regular basis
