Degu

Origins & Characteristics

Common Degu’s are endemic to the central area of Chile and come from the same family as that of Guinea Pigs and Chinchilla’s. The species are highly sociable and can live up to 13 years of age.

All About Oreo, Daim & Mars

We have 3 female degu’s, who have lived with us at the farm since early 2017. They are brilliant to watch and we often refer to them as frenemies as they love to squabble just as much as they love to cuddle up for naps. Students have learned to put up with their noise as they run on their exercise wheels all day long!”
