Some time last year, I found that rodents made neat pets. I decided I really wanted a pet rat or two. Unfortunately, my wife was not so keen on the idea. She came close once to letting me get a rat, but that quickly faded. I discovered a neat alternative to rats that my wife could enjoy.
We found a breeder near us and acquired a couple of Degus. We named them Marlin and Savage. I'll let you figure out where the names come from.
This morning, I got up to make coffee and noticed the sun shining in through the window on Marlin & Savage. It was perfect. I got out my camera, set the tripod on top of the table and snapped a bunch of shots.
