I had a gerbil for about three years. He was incredibly active and squirrely. They're very fast movers when they want to be but also very curious. He was fantastic to handle once you got used to their movements. I loved watching him investigate new toys or items in his cage, as well as his burrowing. He had a wheel with a sleeve so his tail wouldn't get caught up in it and he definitely used it! I often fell asleep to the squeeky wheel. He was fairly friendly with me and loved getting scratches on his forehead.
