Default We have some new little ones!

Yep, you read right!

These pets weren't going to come so soon, but well, here they are. JessLough got us the supplies and all of it as a Christmas gift.

They are all un-named as of now, and all female. Mind the somewhat stinky photos, I took them without flash and without moving anything in the cage, as I want to disrupt them as little as possible for the first little while.

This is the hamster, nicked "hammie" for now. She belongs to Matt. She's a cream and white, and has bicolour eyes. So cool! I didn't know hamsters could be bicolour.


oh hai!


And here's my two new guinea pigs. I've always loved guinea pigs growing up, and was eager to eventually add a pair to the zoo. One is an American smooth, and I think it's colour is defined as brindle, and the other is an Abyssinian tortoiseshell.


The Abyss girlie.




Hanging out in their colourful hiding box.


Hope you like them.

You got PIGGIES!! They're perhaps my favourite caged pets. I had GP's in high school, such great little guys

They are a bit skittish right now, we only got them yesterday. They were eating carrots from my hand earlier, though. <3 After a bit of time I'm sure they'll be friendly. Prey animals tend to take time to get used to you.

I love piggies. We are down to one. I don't think that color is brindle, though. I I think it may be something like broken cream, agouti and white. The darker parts are definitely agouti.

Ah okay, thanks! I was somewhat familiar with the colours when I got them (I knew right away that the mediumhaired one was an Abyssinian tortoiseshell) but the smoothie sure confused me.

I used to have a lovely agouti dutch shorthair. She was one of our original piggies we found out in the preserve. She was huge and she had a solid agouti baby at the time. I think she is my favorite piggie ever. We named her Mehitabel. She was very friendly, and the largest piggie I have ever seen.
