Loving sisters Betty and Rose have settled well in their foster home, after a rough start in life. They were nervous for the first few weeks but not anymore. They will come to their fosterer when she calls them unless they are sleeping. The sisters are affectionate with one another and enjoy playing together. The grey sister was plump when she arrived but having a wheel for the first time has helped her lose weight. Not suitable for children.

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.
