Degus all grown up!

Here's my boys. They are getting better about being held.

The more outgoing degu is in Trevor's arms.

Here's my shy guy

Great pics!
They've certainly gotten bigger, and it looks like their tail tufts are growing in too.
How often do the degus get out?

About once a day or so they are offered a treat and they must take it from our hands. We make it so they are usually half in our hands before they can reach the treat. They are probably held only once a week--they are still quite timid about hands scooping them up.

Hi Splash, these are the links I used for help.
http://www.angelfire.com/on4/degumania/index.html
http://home.worldonline.nl/~hleli/index2.html
http://degoe.tripod.com/engels/index.html
However, the best info we found was in Degus from the Barron's Educational Series.
I brought them home Jan 25, 2005, when they were only a couple of months old.
