This species is the only native small mammal that can be found active during the daytime in this area.
Although other members of the degu’s evolutionary lineage (the family Octodontidae) are all active during the night, the degu has adopted a totally day-time pattern of activity when it emerges from its underground burrows for foraging and above-ground social activity.
The degu’s physiology is similar to that of other nocturnal rodents, and it cannot tolerate extensive exposure to solar radiation.

Tuco-tucos also live in man-made habitats such as pastures, agricultural fields, and vacant city lots.
Tuco-tucos are members of the degu family (Octodontidae), although they are sometimes classified in their own family (Ctenomyidae).
The remarkable array of species is likely due to the sedentary nature of tuco-tucos, which, combined with their burrowing behaviour, results in isolated populations—a condition associated with rapid speciation.
