My gerbil is acting strange
hey there, i recently bought a new food bowl for my gerbils, i used to use ceramic ones but i dropped one and couldn't affored to replace it so i got a little metal one, it was cute and afforidible and about the same size.
When i put it in the cage, my little gray gerbil Mable started attacking it, she pushes it around the tank with her head, tries to lift it up, bites it claws at it and bangs it against the sides of the tank, she doesn't do it with anything else and seems to really have a disliking towards it. i have left it in there for over 2 weeks now and she still continues to attack the bowl with the same amount of aggression, she even kicks out all the food from it so she can lift it up. is there any reason for this hatred. she has never taken badly to anything else, i even bonded her with me other gerbils and they don't fight or anything. it just seems she has funny feelings with this bowl. none of my gerbils do it either. is there something wrong?
