Degus love toys and they should be provided to offer enrichment. Be aware that some wood can be toxic to degus but the most popular, safe and easily accesible woods are; hazel, willow and a lot of fruit trees. At Minipetz we use mainly hazel and apple so you can be sure all of our toys are safe for degus.
But don’t expect toys to last too long! Degus love to gnaw on their toys and it is very important to keep teeth down, so don’t be surprised if it completely vanishes! Toys should not be painted, but can be dyed with a natural dye, adding a splash of colour to their cage.
