Lop Eared X Lionhead Rabbits

Our Lop Eared X Lionhead rabbits were born on 7th June 2017. They love attention and being picked up, cuddled and handled.

Rats

Our Rats are called Penelope, Pandora and Patricia. Pet rats have been kept as pets since the late 19th Century and are typically variants of the species brown rats. They do not pose any more of a health risk than other pets such as cats and dogs.

Quail

Quail is a small game bird and is part of the pheasant family. They are very difficult to see, but can be heard, often calling from the grass fields. They like to eat seeds and insects.

Guinea Pigs

Guinea Pigs are social creatures and prefer to live in groups. They can often be heard ‘chattering’ to one another.

Chinchillas

Our Chinchillas are both male and are called Snap and Crackle. They are rodents that are ‘crepuscular’ – which means that they are active at dawn and dusk. They are native to South America.

Hermanns Tortoises

Our two Hermanns Tortoises are called Dexter and Fergie and were born in January 2016. They have a yellow/orange domed shell with black markings. They do not have teeth, just a strong beak.

Degus

Degus are diurnal – which means they are out and about during the daytime hours, often foraging. They are a close relative to the Chinchilla, and look very much like an oversized Gerbil.
