What’s the difference between a hamster and a gerbil?

You have been looking into your different pocket pet options, and you want to make sure you are able to be there for any potential little fur ball you bring home. However, you aren’t sure which would be the best fit for your household. What should you know about the differences between hamster’s and gerbils?

Hamster’s and gerbils are both pocket pets and do have some similarities, but they also have a lot of things that set them apart from one another. Sharing your home with a gerbil will offer you more interaction, as they tend to be more social and are awake more often during the traditional waking hours of a human. Hamsters are more solitary creatures, and tend to be nocturnal. This may mean that they are up at night and some noise will accompany this. Your Las Vegas, NV vet clinic can offer additional advice.
