To breed show quality gerbils with thick brush tufts and excellent markings.
|I would be willing to meet anyone that would like to adopt a pair of my gerbils within a reasonable driving distance. For an additional 5$ towards gas cost I could drive further(up to 3 hours) to deliver pups to good homes.|
|Why Gerbils? Gerbils appearance is similar to other rodents, except that their tail is not hairless, and at the end they have a tuft. Unlike other rodents, gerbils do not bite unless they are very frightened, or handled wrong. Gerbils are desert creatures, so because they drink less, they urinate less frequently and thus their cages do not need to be cleaned as often as other rodents. Gerbils are NOT nocturnal but take several naps throughout the day and night, and wake when someone is around to play with them or take them out of their tanks. Gerbils are very social animals and need to be kept in groups called "clans" of 2 or more members(up to 3 for females, up to 6 for males), they cannot live happily alone. They are inquisitve, hardy animals that require little care but lots of love and affection. Gerbils are very intelligent and enjoy new challenges and toys.|
