Ivar cages for your degus
When I first saw this, I thought they were hamsters but I learnt some thing new today. It’s a degu, a small caviomorph rodent that is native to Chile. And they are getting very popular as pets. So if you have degu and are looking for a cage, this may fit the bill.
Antonia found a way to convert her Ivar racks into a home for four degus.
She says, “On the top there is enough space to decorate it with some flowers etc. Under the cage you find a drawer where you can store everything you need for your pets. Also, the Forvar jar from Ikea is a wonderful sand bath and helps to keep the environment clean.
Thanks to my boyfriend Sven, these racks are a wonderful adventure playground for the four clowns.”
