Provide to your gerbils comfortable and safe living environment

Having a small pet that is always in your room is great. You can play when you want and you will always have a friend near you. Because smaller animals are very active, you can play with them any time you want. Dogs and cats sleep a lot and they are cranky if you wake them. If you like small pets, gerbils are the best solution for you. Just because they are small and live in a cage, doesn’t mean they don’t need anything. You will have to provide the best living environment you can.

The most important is gerbilarium. This is a big tank filled with burrowing material. Gerbils need it because they are burrowing animals that originate from the desert. You should buy the biggest gerbilarium you can afford, so your pet can exercise. They are available in any pet shop. It has to be placed indoors and away from the TV or some other loud sound because a TV can stress the animals. The ideal temperature for the adult gerbils is between 20° and 22°C.

Gerbils need a secluded and quiet nest box, so they can sleep inside during the day. They build their own nest, so you will have to provide them a suitable bedding. You can buy a bedding for small pets or you can use shredded kitchen roll. Do not use cotton wool or newspapers. They can be dangerous if a gerbil eats them. Every owner should clean gerbilarium every 2-3 weeks. Thorough clean should be done every three months. Then, you should replace the nesting material, bedding and wash the gerbilarium.
