"Diverse and Unique"
We are working to bring an array of small rodents, curated for those who want a unique pet, but may not be ready for one that requires a lot of space. This new addition to the KyTy family will take time to build up for your family, so we appreciate your patience.
We have curated a list of products that will provide you with the most successful experience with your new companion.
These are some of the largest gerbils on the planet, and much calmer and easier to handle than their smaller counterparts. They are sweet and friendly, enjoying their interactions with humans as well as their clan.
Egyptian Spiny Mice
Small mammals with bare tails and coats endowed with unusually stiff guard hairs, similar to the spines of a hedgehog, likely used as a deterrent to predators (though not stiff enough to relay much actual protection).
Not actually related to the kangaroo, these small rodents have developed the similar way of hopping from place to place independently. These little critters drink almost no water at all, getting most of their moisture from the seeds they eat, and can actually become over-hydrated very easily. Kangaroo rats are solitary creatures, and very rarely are found in groups in the wild, even though many may inhabit the same area.
Also known as fat-tailed gerbils, duprasi have thick, soft, fluffy coat. They stores fat in its tail, in the same way that the camel stores fat in its hump. Their round, somewhat flattened bodies, and docile demeanor, give them adorable pet quality.
