Hello !

I’m a french veterinary student and I’m writing a thesis on the behavior in captivity and needs of exotic rodents.

There is very few scientific bibliography on these species so I have chosen to make a survey for exotic rodents keepers. The answers to this survey will be the basis of my thesis : the more answers I get, the better my thesis will be !

I post here to invite you to answer this survey if you own one (or several) of the following species :
- Dwarf (winter white or campbell) Hamsters (Phodopus sungorus)
- Roborovski's Hamsters (Phodopus roborovskii)
- Chinese Hamsters (Cricetulus griseus)
- Degus (Octodon degus)
- Chipmunks (Eutamias sibiricus)
- Egyptian Spiny Mice (Acomys cahirinus)
- African Pygmy Mice (Mus minutoides)
- Zebra/Striped Mice (Lemniscomy barbarus)
- Mastomys (Mastomys natalensis)
- Fat-Tailed Gerbils (Pachyuromys duprasis)
- Persian Jirds (Meriones persicus)
- Shaw's Jirds (Meriones shawi)
- Gambian or Emins' Pouched Rats (Cricetomys gambianus/emini)
- Acacia Rats (Thallomys paedulcus)
- Steppe Lemmings (Lagurus lagurus)
- Richardson's Ground Squirrel (Spermophilus richardsonii)
- Southern Flying Squirrel (Glaucomys volans)
- African Pygmy Dormice (Graphiurus murinus)
- Asian Garden Dormice (Eliomys melanurus)

The survey is accessible by following this link :

This survey is relatively short (5-7 min according to people who have already answered it). If you own several species and if you want to, you can of course answer the survey several times (and, in this case, thanks a lot !).

Thank you for your help !
