I nead help!

Ok so my 2yr old gerbil diamond just died and I am really worryed about what to do about my 3yr old gerbil butterball last time she was alone she got supper mean and would bite me any time I put my hand in the cage but I worried about getting her a young gerbil to play with will that work or will she kill a new gerbil I am going to do the split cage method no mater what but would an older or yonder gerbil be better for her?

Hmmm well you could leave her by herself. She might just be upset and need time to calm down and stop biting. But i would say if you want to get her a friend then get 2 younger females. That way they have each other when she passes. But its totally up to you. Definatly do a split cage if you want more.

Agreed. It's always better in threes. I actually learned that here. If you have a social pet, it's better to have three of them so that when one passes, the other two still have each other.
