I'm dying to talk to someone about Degus...They're like the best pet ever! Mine's name is Momo...He wants a buddy and/or girlfriend. All he ever does is stare at my gerbil but Gonzo the gerbil hates other rodents. He has the biggest cage out of all my pets. It's a 5 1/2 foot tall parrot cage. He lives in a 2 bedroom apartment(2 wooden boxes stacked on each other) He never bite anyone, which is a big accomplishment for any small animal. He is roughly 2 years old now. His birthday is in August. Momo is the best pet I've ever had the pleasure to have. He's just so much different than any other rodent. Most will run away if you try to catch them but he walks right up my arm. He'll also grab things out of my hand, even if they're not for him...lol! He loves shiny things and keeps a stash of banana chips buried in his house. His job is being a paper shredder! His past time is sleeping in pockets! BTW his full name is Mozart. Well I hope everyone loved my little biography of Momo.
