Degu photos - December 16th 2014

A couple of sleepy degus:

I'm not sure which of the degus is in the above photos; they're really difficult to tell apart when you can't see their noses, and I don't remember who it was. But I know this one is Jasper:

Such cute fellers... Smiles.

How to you tell their noses apart?

They have different white markings on their noses. Or, in Jasper's case, no white marks at all on his nose.

Jasper has no markings.
Joshua has a white dot on just one side of his nose.
Jenks has a very small white dot on each side of his nose.
Jacob has a white marking down the center of his nose, which - if you look closely at it - almost looks like a boot or "j" sort of shape.

It's something similar for the rats: Star has a white mark on her face (nose/forehead area) and Skye doesn't.
