The lovely Gail (white marks on head and on the left in the photo) and Emily (on the right in the photo) are so much happier now that they’re in their new tank. They’ve been exploring and digging and kicking out all the sand from their sand bath, whilst zooming up and down their slides! They are friendly and inquisitive and pop over to say hello any time we’re near their tank.

Gerbils should be kept in a large tank (minimum dimensions of 75cm x 45cm x 63cm) with at least 20cm deep of burrowing material to satisfy their natural instincts. We recommend the Ferplast Gabry 80, Skyline Falco, Skyline Marrakesh (96cm), Jungle Pets plain Gerbil/Mice tank 36inch+ or a similar sized tank or DIY Aquarium.
