Housing for degus is always hard. You hear so many stories from different people. At the shelter we think it is very important to make our animals as happy as we can this includes getting the right house for them. Our motto is the bigger the better. Degus are very active and like to do things. They need space. Degus like to run flat and although of course they can jump onto different platforms, you need to be aware that are a lot of incorrect housing for them on the internet. Large cages with lots of complete levels are the best rather than 1 or 2 half levels with lots of platforms. We have used one of our houses from the shelter as an example for you to look at.
