Additional information

There can be other pets in the home but the gerbil enclosure will need to be in a room that can be shut off from any cats or dogs.

Family and environment

What kind of family am I looking for?

Gerbils rarely enjoy being handled so do suit a family who are happy to watch them, over trying to handle them.

What type of environment would suit me?

Gerbils are best housed in a large fish tank or an Ikea detolf display cabinet as they prefer to live underground, so need the ability to dig deep. The ideal size tank for a pair or small group of gerbils is 100cm wide by 30cm deep by 30cm high. This will require a mesh lid constructing to keep them secure and well ventilated.
