- Title: Degus
- Name: Danielle Gnidziejko
- Location: Lake Havasu City, Arizona
- Frieda and Agnetha Natural Agouti Degu. They do carry the genetic for Blue. They have 3 brothers who are Blue. Many of these colorations, have been developed and imported from Europe.
They were born on 09/27/21. They are very sweet and since they are colony animals, I am only willing to sell the sisters together.
Degus are small rodents from Chile, who are closely related to Chinchillas. Their diet is very bland and they eat a base of a pellet that has no added sugars. Degus are susceptible to diabetes, so low sugar diets are best. They also are given mixes of dried Timothy Hay, Mum Flowers, Dandelion, Sunflower and Pumpkin Seeds as well as an unsalted peanut each night for a snack. They also enjoy some type of fresh veggie once a day such as carrots, zucchini, any type of squash, cucumber, lettuce or celery.
Degus are amazingly loving little animals that bond with their owners. They make many adorable noises and can live 8 to 10 years. They are companion animals, so it’s very important that you do not have a degu already, that you consider purchasing a 2nd. Males must be neutered if they are live together, and they will make at 6 weeks, if with a female.
