My friend recently gave me a pet rodent, but I'm not sure what it is. Can someone identify it for me? Thanks for any help!

Definitely a gerbil. They do best in pairs or groups so consider getting him/her a same-sex buddy :).

I'll have to ask my parents :) I'm fairly new to owning rodents. I once had a dwarf hamster, but that was long ago. This gerbil is rather skittish (I named him Shepard, by the way) so I was wondering the best way to care for him. Any tips?

you need to research hand taming and get him to trust you, otherwise his skittishness wont get any better, but for some rodents this is just their personality, i have an incredibly timid little mouse, i guess shes just a worrier
