  • Sex: Male
  • ID#: 217555
  • Hair: Unknown
Usually in a pair of gp's you'll find one more outgoing than the other....but these two are about the same personality wise. Doodle is maybe a bit more outgoing and Snickers is a little bit calmer. We think they would be fine for any family. GP's on average, live to be 5-7 years old and do require a yearly vet exam. A vet can examine their teeth, check their weight, eyes, ears and overall make sure they are as healthy as can be.

Make sure that Snickers and Doodle each have their own hiding box. GP's enjoy chewing on wicker and wooden toys/blocks that you can get at pet stores. They also like to chew on toilet paper rolls that can also be stuffed with hay. They do not need treats or salt licks.

They will need time outside of their cage every day (inside of course). They need to stretch, but more importantly they need to get out for mental stimulation. Find a safe area in your home where they can't get caught behind something or crawl into a small a long hallway or a small bathroom. Put some towels down in case they potty and it'll help with traction.

They should be picked up with both hands because they have very delicate spines and bodies. If not held properly or dropped, they can easily be injured.

Their cage should not be placed near heat or drafts. It must be cleaned every 2-3 days so they stay healthy and it won't get smelly. (See Doodle's write-up for more care/feeding information.)
