Suggestions for a Happier Gerbil
Handle and pet your gerbil daily; they love attention. They will soon recognize their care takers. Be careful to never drop your gerbil while handling it. Let your gerbil sleep during the day; they will awaken around 5 p.m. One reason they make such ideal pets for children is that they become active in the early evening when they can be enjoyed. Always supervise handling of pets by children less than 10 years of age.
