Even though we might seem to be nocturnal animals, we do not sleep all day and play all night. Instead, we have many sleep/wake cycles throughout day and night.
Our sleep patterns adjusts to the amount of activity in the house. Since we are so curious about human activity,we adapt well to our owner’s routine. We are light sleepers, so when you get home, we will always make time to play with you despite our sleep schedule.
But don’t worry about disturbing your pet gerbil either. They will go to sleep when they need to rest regardless of what’s going on.
