Degu toy: The right activity for demanding animals
With a body length of up to 25 cm, degus need a lot of space in their home. In addition, these lively small animals have high demands when it comes to freedom of movement and activity. In nature, degus live in large groups and need at least one other member of their species. The right degu toy consists of many play and hiding places, because they love to explore, climb and conquer everything.
The perfect degu toy for cuddling, climbing and hiding
Degus love variety and only really feel good when there is constantly something new to discover. A lack of activity can lead to behavioural problems in these active animals in the long run. Therefore, you should not be parsimonious with the right degu toys. The rodents love to cuddle and prefer their own little house with enough chambers so that each animal has its own place of retreat. Unlike chinchillas, they are not the best climbers, but like to explore everything, even higher up. Ramps, wooden bridges or play tunnels invite exploration and allow for a varied design of the den, which can be changed again and again. Running wheels are also a popular activity for the degu, as they allow the animals to satisfy their natural urge to move. When buying a wheel, make sure it is big enough to protect your degus’ spines and to prevent them from hurting themselves.
Intelligence toys for mind and body
Degus are intelligent animals and spend their days foraging in the wild, so intelligence toys are the ideal activity for them. They challenge the animals mentally and keep them fit. If the toys are filled with treats or the daily food, the lively small animals can become really active. It is important that all toys for degus are made of natural materials such as wood, straw or grass, because they will gnaw anything that they can get their teeth into.
Another indispensable toy for degus is a sand box. Fill it with fine sand so that the animals can follow their natural urge to dig. Degus also use sand to clean their fur and remove excess oils.
