Hola, fellow rodent lovers. I'm new; basically just here to talk with some like-minded people and, most of all, LEARN! Also my username means 'cute' in Japanese because if you look at the photos....yeah. THEY ARE SO ADORABLY CUTE.
One day I want to breed Winter White Russian Dwarf hamsters and would like to run my own small mammal/rodent rescue. I know a fair bit about hammy genetics because of this.
My current rodenty friends are:
Prince Snow, six month old male Syrian hamster. (Pale eared white)
Princess Jane, eight month old sapphire female Russian Dwarf Hybrid hamster
Paddy,11 month old male mosaic chinchilla
Ash, 11 month old homozygous beige chinchilla
And other animals are 3 horses, 3 dogs, 1 cat, 3 tortoises, 1 rabbit, 1 fish and one locust. The mad menagerie says hi!
I would quite like to adopt a duprasi and possibly a pair of african pygmy dormice but was wondering about affordable housing solutions? Would a sturdy bin cage or large commercial cage (eg the zoozone large which is 101 x 51 x 22 cm) be okay for a duprasi or do they chew too much for that? Aquariums are so expensive.
Also another random pet aspiration I have is to own some patagonian maras! They're related to guinea pigs and look like a cross between a muntjack deer and a cavy, and are the third largest rodent in the world. They are GORGEOUS!!!!! A capybara would be cool too, but I don't know if they're legal in the UK.
So, hi I guess lol. Sorry for the essay. I can talk for days about my animals lol.
