Degu requirements & accessories in the Maxi Zoo online shop
The most important degu accessories for species-appropriate care
Degus live in the ground, but every now and again they have an urge to climb. Their body is about 25 cm long and their tail is almost the same. In order to satisfy their natural urge to move and to have sufficient play options, they need housing with a large floor area. They love bathing, are constantly looking for variety and need to have at least one other companion. The right degu accessories therefore consist of many options for entertainment and species appropriate basic equipment to ensure that they do not get bored.
Bedding: Indispensable accessories for degus
In the great outdoors, degus enjoy digging underground and creating networked burrows. Even when kept in a cage, they should have sufficient opportunities to burrow. The right bedding is therefore of great importance. It must be dust-free and laid out at least 20 cm thick. Hay is also an important degu accessory. It not only serves the animals as food, but is also suitable as a soft lining for the burrows.
Degus love a leisurely sand bath
Like mice and hamsters, degus are also particularly clean animals that groom their fur every day. A sand bath is ideal for this, because it gently combs the fur and removes excess oil. The sandbox should be positioned slightly higher so that no litter lands in the sand. Special chinchilla sand is best because it is particularly fine and washed and sieved several times.
Feed and drinking cups: The right Degu accessories for optimum care
Water bowls and drinking bottles must always be placed in an easily accessible location. Food bowls made of ceramic and clay are best, because they are not as easy to tip over as plastic containers. In addition, the animals cannot nibble the edges and there is no risk that they will injure themselves on plastic parts. If you want to offer your degus variety, add hay to the cage every now and then, because searching for food keeps the animals fit.
Accessories for degus to ward off animal boredom
Running wheels, tunnels, caves and climbing frames are the ideal degu accessory. The animals can really exert themselves and satisfy their natural urge to move. It is important that all items are made of natural materials such as solid wood. This is the only way that the animals can safely nibble on everything they want and also care for their teeth at the same time.
