Group Description

This is the mailing list and group of the website >DEGUTOPIA< www.Degutopia.co.uk

Degus (Octodon degus) are small creatures related to guinea pigs and chinchillas (order Caviomorpha). They are currently classed as rodents and are similar in appearance to squirrels. Originating from Chile (around the Andes mountains), degus are becoming increasingly popular as pets due to their bubbly personalities and gentle ways.

This group is designed for anyone who owns a degu and would like advice or to exchange tips with other owners, or for anyone interested who would like to find out more. Scientifically based, the features you will find here include:

*Degu Information Forum- post messages, ask and answer degu questions

*Large 'files' section- contains full-text degu research articles

*Degu breeders/sellers/rehomes list- find degus in your area, or find a home for your degus in the 'database' section

*Degu vet list- find a vet near to you with specialist degu knowledge in the 'database' section

*Share photos of your degus with other members in the 'photos' section

*Take degu-related polls in the 'polls' section

*Keep up-to-date with the latest degu research from the scientific community, and hear about the lates Degutopia website updates

The moderators of this group live in the UK so will happily give advice on breeders/specialists in England, but degu lovers worldwide are welcome.

Everyone is welcome, and please feel free to send in pictures of your own degus!

We now also have a Facebook partner site, Degu Mania: http://www.facebook.com/degumania
