Us Gerbils, we have to take care of our fur. So we can keep it nice, soft and clean. To do that, our owners give us a bowl with soft sand in it. That is just perfect for bathing.
So we roll around, we stretch, we clean and sometimes we also eat some hay or feed in our sand bowl….We know that makes it dirty, but we get new sand anyway.
You should try a sand bath too, Human!
