The Blue Degu is a part of the Critter Week themed collection.

Blue degu modal

Apart from the normal agouti colour, the blue degu, also called silver degu, is the most commonly known and widespread colour variation. The fur shows a higher share of grey, especially young degus look a silver-grey. Blue degus are still rare, since the passing on is recessive. That means the dominant agouti colour will cover up the blue characteristics. Blue degus have long been said to be of weak health and show behavioural disorders. There is no proof for that, though. One reason could be that blue degus often arise from inbreeding. For the sake of the animals, we hope that (if ever – there are many degus in animal shelters) breeding will be sensible and well-considered.
