Boomer and Ascher are 5 years old and must be adopted together. Their needs are simple: a tall cage, a cool and quiet room, chinchilla pellets to eat. They are nocturnal and very active when awake...they love to move fast!
Their lifespan is 15-20 years, so you can expect these two to be with you for a long time!
