    I have one . Got to keep it under lock and key though !!!!!

    Mine is 8 weeks old and she acts liek a kittne,plays like a kitten and eats kitten food along with veggies , And she loves grapes

    You can litter box train them too . There poop smells just like a ferrets .

    They do have a smell to them though . Its no wheres close to the "skunk" smell . But as long as you keep them clean and give them a bath every once and a while (dont do it to much it dries out there skin and isnt good) they dont really stink

    They come in all kinds of colors .

    GET ONE !!!

    Your signature says you have bats? What can you tell me about them? Always wanted one of those flying foxes...pretty cool creatures.

    They are pretty cool . Cant do much with them though . They come out at night . MIne are fruit eaters so they have afruity smell to them and attract fruit flies its kinds grose . I have them inside my house right now because i had to rebuild cages to suit them better and now my house has them and we have to bomb it . I know TMI LOL

    they like to live with others so at least get 2 . i have a male and 2 females . the females are about to have babies . I just lost a mother who had a baby tried to bottle feed the baby and lost it today . But i have done it sucesfuly before
