Degus and children

degus kidsDegus can become very hand tame and enjoy coming out of their cage to investigate a secure room; they also love foraging for hidden treats which can make a fun game between children and degus.

Degus are very sensitive to sudden loud noises and movements. Children must always be supervised whilst handling them and encouraged to speak to degus in a quiet tone.
