We still don't know the gender, but I am pretty sure it's a boy. The damn pet store won't call me back to confirm. He has teeth (I know, because he bit me). He likes baby carrots, but not carrots with tops??? He does not like sweet potatoes or strawberries and not really fond of apples, crackers or cherry tomatoes either. He rather enjoys green leaf lettuce, but I've been told that too much can cause gas, bloating and diarrhea. That's no good, so I'll have to limit his intake. He does like his orchard grass, which is similar to alfalfa. I also read they like oatmeal, so I'll give that a try. I gave him a cardboard box to play with and he's having a good time chewing off all the corners and tossing it around his cage. We don't have a name picked out yet, so if you have any suggestions, I'd love to hear them.
