Exclamation mange tout for gerbils?

Can gerbils eat mange tout? The're like giant peas in a pod....i've been trying to find out but can't seem to. I noticed hamsters can so was hoping that gerbils could too?

Also, Ive read that fluffy bedding can be dangerous to gerbils as it can cut circulation? Im using something like this but made from natural vegetable fibre so was sort of hoping it will be ok :-S what do you think? Its too cold out to give them just shredded tissue paper...

I'm not sure about Mange tout, i tend to avoid most green vegetables as too much can cause diahorrea.

As for the fluffy bedding, i would avoid it at all cost. It can get tangled around their paws etc and cause an infection or as you said, cut off the circulation.

Tissue is better bedding and it's cheaper
