I am on the verge of getting one of them. I'm kinda hoping someone will talk me out of it. What is the very worst thing that I can expect from them? I have been watching lots of videos and reading up about them and they seem to have no cons at all - they are docile, hardy, easy to care for and very inexpensive. There has to be a downside to them?
@VanessaS The only downside is that they are hard to find. You said earlier that you know a guy though, so that isn't the case for you.
The fact that they are such wonderful pets is why you will find dozens upon dozens of threads on here asking if anyone is selling them, but the only threads trying to sell them are a couple from years ago. This leads to them also being fairly expensive, as their is a huge demand among us weirdos, but (at least in Canada,) a fairly small supply.
