I had one years ago when I was a kid and it was one of my favorite pets. They are neat little animals that look like hamsters, but they have a long worm like tail. They are much friendlier than hamsters and they hardly smell at all. They almost never bite and they are pretty smart. I never saw them in the petstore again after I bought mine, but my parents did want to get another one after we found out what great pets they were. The last time I saw them was at a reptile show in florida. There are a couple reptile shows around here, and I'm planning to go sometime next year. I have a fish tank and a few of the fish have died off. I think I might either rehome the rest of the fish (By sticking them into our tank at school) or just wait until the others die and then stick the betta in a smaller 3 gallon tank. Then I'd like to get two male duprasi. I already spoke to my mom who is Mrs. "No more inside animals" and she was perfectly ok with it. That was a shocker! So I'm excited, but I have to wait until I either find a local reptile show I can go to, or until I can do something with my fish. I like having the fish, but I think the duprasi would be more fun!
