Gerbil Introductions

I am really worried about my two gerbils, my older black female, will play nice outside of the cage, but in a new clean, different cage is mean agressive, to the younger female, if you can help please do. I dont want them to have to live separate forever. thank you.

Erin :tongue2:

have you tried the split cage meathod?
Are they a bonded pair, or a new pair?

Unfortunetly female gerbils are very territorial and need to be split caged to be bonded to another gerbil they did not grow up with.

Yes, they play together just perfect and cage has been thoroughly cleaned, now they are separated by plexi-glass in the same cage, and see each other, don’t dig to each other or anything, but we the barrier opens, Jerry (older by a month) sniffs her and then chases he around, and the little one squeals. I don’t know whether it be right to let he do it, if it is a dominance thing, but I'm not sure, and would like to seek advice or course . They are a new pair.

Are they Ball fighting?
Or is she just trying to Mount the little one?
As long as they are not hurting one another (ball fighting) I would let them work things out, but keep a close eye on them.
Young ones do do alot of squeeking, it's like they are telling the older gerbil "i'm a baby I'm no threat to you, don't hurt me".

Good luck with the intro.
