Eric was born February 2010 so is already a good age.  he is well handled and very inquisitive.  Sadly he has lost his mates recently but with the help of a cuddly toy he appears to be coping ok. He loves his food and enjoy a wide variety of items.  More than his food he loves his wheel and it never stops all day.  Fortunately he is not nocturnal so peace comes of a night.   He has a unique character and provides hours of entertainment.  He will need a good sized cage with plenty to play with.

He loves his breakfast and come up to look what is on offer as soon as his cage is open.
