  1. Gerbil & Hamster Discussion
    About three weeks ago I picked up two new little gerbils from a pet store, one of them was very tiny and the other was a little larger. I have had gerbils before but this one was the sweetest thing ever, he was always calm and actually loved to be held, always hopped into my hands for treats and...

    I got a sandy colored gerbil about four or five months ago, she hasn't grown at all that I've noticed in that time, but she's very healthy. My problem is, no Matter how much I handle her, she nips! She also hates being pet. But if she's in her hamster ball, she'll follow me around and sit next...

    I have 2 young female gerbils. I'm pretty sure they're related and siblings but not positive on that note. One is slightly smaller than the other. They were getting along fine, grooming and sleeping together. Then one day they suddenly decided they hate each other. The black one started he fight...

  10. Degu Discussion
    my very friendly degu lost his friend yesterday. we were looking at putting a gerbil in with him. he isn't at all territorial and isn't coping on his own. his cage is big (enough for 10 degus so definitely enough for him and a gerbil.) and we could adjust him to fit both of them. could this work?

    So my female gerbil just had five pups and I HAVE to get a rid of them. I'm going to try to give them to pet stores and craigslist and petfinder. Any more ideas? Also, After 5 weeks when I seperate the male and females, can I still tell who's a male or do I have to remember when I find out...

    I have two animals I need to rehome. I rescued both of them from becoming snake food, but I can't keep them. First one is a female gerbil. About 1 year old. She is a Burmese/Siamese. She is very cute and friendly. She is still a little jumpy and will need someone to work with him. She will let...

    Hey, guys. I'm looking for a high quality gerbil diet with at least 16% protein. My little Nala is pregnant and I just want her to get enough of what she needs. I've been adding Innova Low Fat cat food and she seems to like it, but I would feel more comfortable just feeding a gerbil diet. I...

    Hello guys, I currently have 2 male gerbils who live together, and have done for the majority of their life. Their names are Ben and Jerry :) I can't quite remember exactly how old they both are but I know for sure that they are getting along and that Ben is older than Jerry. I always observe...

    I've only just begun to be able to hold my gerbil without stressing him out and noticed that in the last week his nose has gotten darker, almost looks like scabbing or maybe it's just gunk from a cold? I keep the critters away from the windows since it's pretty drafty, but is it possible he may...
