Luna & Billie - Our Degus

Meet Luna and Billie – Our School Degus

We adopted two girl degus from a family who could no longer keep them. Billie and Luna have wonderful, individual personalities and have been a lovely addition to Diamond Class.

Degus originate from Chile, South America. Whilst they are similar to chinchillas and guinea pigs, degus are diurnal, which means they are most active during the day. This means the children have an opportunity to watch them and interact with them during the school day.
