Provide your Gerbil with a proper living environment as they will not live well in a small cage designed for mice or a hamster. Gerbils are known for gnawing through many materials such as wood and plastic so it’s wise to choose carefully. In addition they will need a lot of space to burrow down into a thick layer of bedding or substrate. We encourage the use of a large metal or glass enclosure. They should be well equipped with shelving, tubes and a lot of materials for burrowing. Here at Petware House we have many proper enclosures to choose from in addition substrate, food and much more. Don’t hesitate to contact us and we will be pleased to be of assistance.
