Make your own free website on

Before I could make this website I had to gather information. I had degus myself at that moment, so my own experiences with this cute little animals were very useful. I also used the information I could get from other sources:

    Konijnen en Knaagdieren encyclopedieThe konijnen en knaagdieren encyclopedie (an encyclopedia for rodents and rabbits) written by Esther Verhoef - Verhallen. This encyclopedia is written in dutch, so it's probably not useful for people who don't understand this language. If you want to know more about this book you should look at the dutch version of this website.

    I want to thank Esther Verhoef-Verhallen for the permission she gave me to use the information in her book, and for the help she offered me.

    I also used the information on some other websites about degus. You can go visit these sites , by making use of my "Links"section.
