Cookie and Pepper are extremely cute and they huddle up together in their coconut! They are both very curious and and will take both food and treats from their fosterers hands, even Pepper who is more nervous. They’ve been healthchecked and were very well behaved for the vet.

Gerbils should be kept in a large glass tank with at least 8 -10 inches deep of burrowing material to satisfy their natural instincts. We recommend the Ikea Detolf (£60 direct from Ikea) and we can direct you to suppliers of ready-made lids if necessary. Junglepets Small Animal Housing plain tanks (without shelves), 36″x15″x15″ (this would require a topper which we can supply) or the 48″x18″x15″ plain tank is ready to use Glass Small Animal housing (  We can advise on sourcing accessories and best setups for any of these tanks. We also recommend the Ferplast Gabry 80, Skyline Falco, Skyline Marrakesh (96cm) when in stock.  We are currently able to supply a large 2 storey tank with the first pair of Gerbils in ARC’s care to be adopted, for a donation to ARC.
