They're all adorable, but I love the colors of Natasha and Genghis.

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. (1 Corinthians 13:4)

I love burmeses, and Peekaboo has a very nice dark tail, but I love the nose point of Boris... Very gorgeous gerbils, they remind me of a few of mine

Thank you very much. That is not a super recent picture of Peekaboo- she was still pretty young there- it's just my fav pic of her LOL but yes, Boris's points are a lot crisper than either of his daughters'. You have some super cuties there, kim!

Thanks, I just adore colorpoints (as you can tell from my sig) I produced and kept quite a few burmese from my female Poppy, that reminds me of your Boris. If you keep colorpoints in a cooler environment during molting, the points will actually develop darker. They have a temperature linked thing, which also exists in himalayan rabbits...

Also works the same in siamese and burmese cats, rats, and mice. It's amazing how that little c locus works!

Very interesting that- I am thinking back now which room they were in around that age- some rooms of my house are colder than others in the winter and they were December babies. I will have to ask my daughter- she did most of the taming and care of them, but most cages in my house migrate to the warmth in the winter- just not sure where they were during molting.

I really must devote more time to learning more about gerbils- I really intend to but never seem to have the time. I am working hard to simplify and organize things around here then I am going to start back my gerbil education and looking seriously for a couple new females.

Well, I'm always up for gerbil questions... I may be more likely to get them/answer them in an email, but on forum questions are good as well, because then everyone can read the advice for future use
