    Thank you for your response. I'm doing a lot of homework on
    each species. I particularly like the fact the Jardine can
    entertain themselves some of the time as I work in the day. I
    have no problem keeping the cage clean with fresh water and
    their diet is okay too as I am a natural food eater mostly
    myself. I appreciate your input.
    Thanks, Laurie
