Degu

This is Bo:




Hello!



Fourth one? What fourth one?
Edit: oops, I wrote "third one?" by mistake. There's 4 degus, but one is being smushed in the degu pile.

Somehow I'm sure this should answer my previous question...

*scratches head*

So they're rat/rabbits then?

:D They're like giant gerbils, really. They're about rat-sized (pet rat, not sewer rat) and originate from Chile. I believe they are considered squirrels there, actually. And they're very vocal & adorable.

Yeah, I think he's doing better. His personality is the same; he's just got a bit of wear & tear. Thanks!

Well, they're at the top of the photo but right-side-up in my version. Weird that it's flipped!

Haha, thanks. Chins are so pretty! I always feel so terrible when I see them cooped up in pet stores. They love to run & jump, but their enclosures are so teeny. Poor things.

omg there is this one at the pet store by my parents house and I so want to break in and liberate him. They want WAY too much for him. GODS animals should NOT be sold for money. *steps off soap box*

I found you on veganpeople, and oh my god! I've never known anyone (irl or online) who has degus. I love these pictures.

I have two chinchillas and a bunny. I really ought to meet some degus.
