Gerry The Gerbil


I’m a rodent from Mongolia.

When I get excited I like to stamp my feet. I like hiding so my cage is quite small compared to the other rodents. In the wild we dig tunnels to sleep and bring up our young. Unlike most rodents, we will both raise our family together.

For more information on our animals please…

Nocturnal (primarily)
In the wild: 3 to 4 months In captivity: 2 to 8 years
15 to 25cm
Excellent sense of smell
