Degus were once commonly kept pets but in recent years they are becoming increasingly rare in the pet trade. This is surprising because they really do have a lot of personality! 

We keep a few colour varieties of Degus which are primarily kept as our personal pets. Periodically, when we do raise a litter and will post them for sale on this page.

We will not sell a Degu to anyone the intends to keep it as a single pet. They thrive best in pairs or groups therefore unless you already have a degu, we prefer that they go to new homes as littermates in same sex pairs or breeding trios.
