What is a degu?

Degus (Octodon degus) are small rodents native to Chile. They are extremely social rodents and live in large groups in the wild, even communally raising young. Degus have a few noticeable physical features: their ears have a lima bean shape, their tails have a tuft of longer fur on the end, they have long back feet, and they have a flat square nose. They are slightly smaller than your average pet rat.

Along with degus, I love drawing other rodents, and also rabbits and lagomorphs!
