Did you know that all rodents have front teeth that never stop growing. The name rodent comes from the Latin for 'gnaw.' They love to chew! Small furry rodents can be wonderful pets and are loving and entertaining little creatures, but we shouldn't forget that, like all pets, they too have their own needs. In this book you'll find out all about rats, mice, degus, gerbils, and hamsters. Some rodents, like gerbils, love social contact and need to kept in pairs or groups, but Syrian hamsters hate other hamsters and need to kept alone. If you want to know what all these small furries love to eat, who their friends and enemies are, and what makes them happy and healthy, you can find out by learning the facts and taking on detective assignments to investigate their needs. By going through your pet detective tasks, you will find out if you and your family are the right owners for these special pets. And, if you discover that you and small furry rodents aren't a perfect match, you can get some pointers to other fabulous animals that might suit you better.
