My first guinea pigs name was Cuddles. He lived about 5 years. I have another one now, and I called her Snuggles. Sometimes she gets shy and other times, she is hyper and full of energy. She eats almost constantly and starts squeaking as soon as she hears the fridge door open. GPs are so adorable and are a great pet because they are so friendly. Your site is great!

I have two dwarf hamsters.The bigger one named "Digger" is white and my other the smaller one is named "Chewy" and is gray. They are both realy cute and are very easy to take care of. I recommend to have an exersize ball. I also recommend to give them something to chew on otherwise they chew out of a plastic cage and make very annoying sounds on a metal cage.

Sexing devilfish is easy. The males have a yellow tail - not as pronounced as a yellow-tail damsel, it is a gradual change that begins about halfway down the tail. Both male and female have a black dot on the dorsal fin, which is an easy way to verify that you are getting a male devil and not a yellow-tail.

I have a new black moor. I didnt name him quite yet since I got him yesterday. He shares the tank with a gold and white fantail gooldfish and a regular calico goldfish. They always hang out in trios. My fantail nips and pushes at the side of my black moor trying to get him to go to the other side of the tank. The calico goes to the other side of the tank to try to show him its ok to go up there! It is VERY funny to watch! I only have one problem with my black moor. When ever i feed them, the fantail and calico eat but not my black moor. I think that he is just a "scaredy fish" because he wont even go into the neon rock i bought! They are ALL just funny to watch together!

I have a wonderful bird. Her name Talahah. The birds color is blue,white, and yellow. Thats beautiful color, huh. I love her, and it takes a lot of care to have a pet. You need to feed them every day,and clean up their cage once a week.

I just wanted to say from my experience I have raised hundreds of litters of mice. To the person who said the pinkies will be eaten if you touch them, the pinkies are ate often times if a lot of inbreeding has happened, also if something is wrong with them, we cant see it , but the mother knows if they are not right, that my seem cruel and disgusting but ALL animals naturally know if something is not right with their baby. Some will abandon them, some will kill them, and for some reason some will eat then(in my openion they eat them because they cant abandon them since they are confined to a cage, and if they kill them, they need to dispose of them) mice however are ones who chose, to kill and eat them. Squirrels for example will throw the babies out of the nest. Mice are also often times extremely inbreed, which of course can cause all sorts of problems. Males in my expereince, will sometimes, although not always eat the babies, and of course overcrowding in a cage will cause them to eat each others babies. I have had some males that are as much a part of the babies as the mother, and other males who would rather eat them. If your mouse eats the babies i suggest you quit trying to breed that mouse, or take in to consideration your housing. Outside of doing a head count daily there is no reason to handle the babies the first several days-even up to a week-which you dont neccesarily need to handle them to count them. They are very delicate, and even as careful as you can be you can damage them. Maybe that is a reason the mother eats them only after you touch them. if you have noticed when you handle them, all organs are vary noticable through the skin, and can be damaged vary easily.
