I can tell my degus apart!

Finally!! First, I could tell the difference only when they were eating, because Brodeur is a big baby and screams even if Terreri isn't near him. Then I noticed Brodeur is a tad chunkier than Terreri, which is fitting! Last night they were very interested in some Timothy Hay and I realized their faces are different. For a long time they both had a light line across their noses. Now, only Broduer does. Next time, I will stick with rodents that are different colors.

This is Terreri on my shoulder.

Too cute! I am glad you can tell them apart, because I sure can't

Are they always so good together?

Oh, they are cute -- and bigger than the gerbils! Are they male/female? (sorry to ask again if you told us that before!) Are those hockey names?

They are named for the goaltending duo of Martin Brodeur and Chris Terreri

They are both males, as far as we can tell and they fight like brothers! They always nap togther and try to run on the wheel at the same time. The cage is not big enough for two wheels, but after the move, I am hoping to get them a bigger house.
