Meghan, if you or Trevor are handy, you could try making your own cage and probably save lots of $$$. For the bottom, you would need a plastic rubbermaid tray and for the top/sides, you would need powder-coated wire closet shelving, that you can buy by the foot at Home Depot or Lowes. You would also need pliers, heavy wire cutters, and some heavy baling wire to connect things together. From what I've read, degus like to climb, so think vertical!

We bought them a nice cage that was 50% off. Today I need to get them each a wheel to run on. They are currently trying to share a gerbil wheel and getting upset with each other. I think I will name them after the goal tending duo of Brodeur and Terreri. (Once I can tell them apart )

LOL! Judging by the last picture, you may be in for baby Degus!
Very cute though.

They really do look like squirrels!
Very cute - I want a pair, but I'm probably allergic to them.

Do they come to you, or try to climb on you? I heard that they are fast and very tough to catch - like kuhli loaches.

There was none of that going on! They like to sit very close to each other. Trevor and I believe they are two males.
They do like to climb around on me, but I do need to catch them first. I saw some adults at the store today while picking up a new wheel. The adults had not really been handled, but one was curious and allowed me to pet it.

Has any one seen the movie the Others? I would think you would need to have a door system like that just incase they ever escaped.
