Degu Tail Survey

Degutopia needs YOU! All you degu owners out there, you can now take part in valuable degu research. This survey is to establish the link (if any) between degu tails. We want to know if there is any relation between the sex of the degu and white tail flashes, and also sex and shed tails. There's a few other details to collect that can help us fine-tune the results. Remember, your vote counts, and the results may very well benefit degus in the future. It couldn't be simpler- just fill out the form below (please only do this once) and your results will be mailed directly to us!
