gerbils and saltines :)

I gave my gerbils a saltine cracker and they are eating them up, but now I am wondering if that was ok because of the salt. What do you think

Too much salt isn't good...but since this was just as a little treat, it should be fine.

I give all of my babies the unsalted crackers...they love them just the same as salted and the unsalted are better for them too!

oh good yeah it is just this time, the reason I gave them some in the first place was this the wrapper had Crackers in it and some how he got a hold of the wrapper and was chewing it and wrestling with it to get inside his cage, and I heard this knocking sound and it was him banging it, so I took out the crackers to make it easier for him to get it. Then what to do with the crackers I thought, so I gave them to the gerbils and now he has all the wrapper in there and now he has lost interest in it lol
