Types of Mammals
When people think rats they think gross pests, but in reality rats are super intelligent and caring! When trained, they can learn their names, come when called, be litter trained, and do a wide variety of tricks!
Guinea pigs are probably one of the most adorable pets in the industry. Why you ask? The cute little noises they make when excited will be loved by the whole family. They can also learn tricks such as jumping, spinning in circles, coming to when called and litter training!
Rabbits are one of the sweetest pets in the industry. Between their soft fur and their calm temper, they’re the ideal pet to sit down and cuddle with! They’re particularly smart and with proper training some people will even let them free roam their house!
Hedgehogs are one of the more exotic species we carry, with prickly quills for self defense and an exceptional sense of smell, these critters make a great companion for your home. Being an insectivore by nature, these guys love and freeze dried crickets, mealworms, superworms and dubia roaches!
Chinchillas are among another one of the exotic species we carry. Not only are they cute, but they’re also the softest animal in the world! Chinchillas may be shy at first, but once they’re socialized properly they are a friend till the end.
Sugar Gliders are the newest addition to Gallery of Pets. They are incredibly social and when bonded correctly will never want to leave your side. Omnivores at heart, they enjoy a variety of fresh fruits and insects. Another impressive skill of theirs is their ability to climb almost anything thanks to their nails.
Anything you do to better the life of your pet is considered enrichment. A larger cage, time to romp, and introducing a new smell or taste to your pet are all forms of enrichment. Giving treats is often a form of immediate enrichment, but there are ways to maximize their benefit. Treat time is social time, and pets enjoy the company and attention they receive. Small, healthy treats from Oxbow are a great way to spend time interacting with your pet.(Oxbow)
