Dig Those Baby Degus!


Degu Mom Doris has her hands full at Germany's Hannover Zoo with five baby Degus. The quintuplet loves nothing more than to climb, dig, sand bathe, and chew their way through wooden blocks. Degus come from Chile and weigh only 14 grams at birth.  The young are born blind and with their fur. After only 3 days, baby Degus open their eyes and are eager to explore their surroundings.
