The Mongolian Gerbil is a strong robust species of Gerbil. They are light brown in colour and the same size as any other gerbil. They are a great species to keep in captivity as they are hardy and very easy to keep. They are a lot cleaner than mice and rat species in my opinion and are more suitable as pets. They are fast and almost squirrel like in behaviour but they do tame down very quickly once they learn that the hands that keep entering the cages bring food and affection. They are a great pet for adolescents and adults and I would highly recommend them.
