Care Tips For Gerbils
Gerbils like to live in the same enclosure with other gerbils because they are very social creatures. When housed alone, a gerbil can become depressed and may suffer from behavior problems. However, gerbils are very prolific, thus when housing them, make sure that males and female are housed in separate enclosures especially if you don’t want to deal with many baby gerbils.
When it comes to feeding pet gerbils, avoid placing them solely on a seed and pellet mix. They tend to choose the seeds only because they find it tastier compared to the pellets. Some gerbils may eat some of the pellets but there are those that ignore the pellets once all the seeds in the mix have been consumed.
