Many of us have pet rabbits, guinea pigs, mice, rats, degus or other small furry; often for our children. This talk will provide an introduction to the world of these delightful creatures. We will look features of their wild homes and lives and how that has shaped their physical and behavioural characteristics. We will also look at how living in our homes as pets can be a challenge for them in ways that are not immediately obvious. Finally we will consider how we can easily and cost effectively help our pets have long and happy lives where they are neither bored or fearful. Young owners are welcome!

During the breaks there will be the opportunity to make enrichment toys for your pets if you wish to (materials provided).

Speaker: Dr Anne McBride, University of Southampton. Anne has written several books on small mammals including some you will find in  typical pet shops.
