My Pet Gerbil

So, you've seen the tarantula and the hedgehog I have as pets. So, I'm going to introduce you my another pet that I have - Gerbil!



What's gerbil? Gerbil is rodent, and a lot of people think they're a mouse/rat because they look like their cousin. The interesting thing is, like your house lizard, gerbil's tail can easiy detached if you pull it with force. The bad part is, the tail won't grow back and it might cause an infection to the gerbil.



Gerbil is an active animal. There's some species of gerbil and the one I'm keeping is known as Mongolian gerbil. Gerbils are active and friendly, they're very curious about the surrounding aka kepo. They make great pets as they rarely bite and they're almost odourless as they don't urinate much since they're dessert animals. But you still have to make sure that there's always water in the drinking bottle for them to drink when they're thirsty.



Gerbils live in colonies. So you want to gerbils, buy a pair. They don't like to be alone as they become depress. When it comes to breeding, it's not just about a-male-and-a-female-will-give-you-babies theory. You have to study about the genetics so you can get the best colour quality from a pair, good temperant and of course healthy gerbils. Get the same sexing pairs if you don't intend to breed unless you have the knowledges,time, spaces and money. Think carefully before you want to breed.



So, if you still don't think they're cute, come and see the real one! lol
