So do degus and chinchillas get along?
Degus and chinchillas are very similar in their attributes and in the food that they enjoy.
However, although chinchillas may tolerate degus, it is quite a risk to put a chinchilla and degu together and hope that they get along.
It really depends on the experience of the owner in knowing how to handle both species, the temperament of both species and how big the cage is.
The chinchilla is more likely to show bullying behavior and cause a great deal of stress for the degu.
They are best kept separated and with their own kind as much as possible.
