A friend like me

Us, Gerbils we are very social animals. We love the company of other gerbils and you can see that in our behaviour. Besides that we are very curious about all our surroundings, there is a few habits gerbils have when they live together.

 

  • when we greet each other we lick the other’s muzzle,a sort of kiss
  • We groom  each other, so we’re pretty
  • when one of us lies on his back in front of another, he wants to play
  • boxing, is often a game, but it could also be a real fight.

We need a buddy to be happy, keeping just one gerbil is wrong. He will suffer from solitude and will lead a short, boring, unhealthy life. The best choice is to keep a pair of same sex animals, except if you want many babies 😉
