Duprasi Care Sheet

Duprasi Care Sheet
by The Ratkateers Rodentry

The Duprasi, or Fat-tailed Gerbil, is a small insectivorous rodent from the northern Sahara desert. They are approximately 3" to 4" inches in length and have a 2" thick tail in which they store excess fat and water. Their tail is mostly bare with a few guard hairs. Duprasi are not closely related to the Mongolian Gerbils. They have very thick soft fur and a fluffy coat very similar to a Chinchilla. They are tan to gray with black ticking and a white underbelly. They are chunky in build with a lot of fat on the body. This makes them appear larger than they are. Duprasis have a pointed snout with cat-like whiskers.
