I was just talking to my neighbour who i watched her gerbils sooty and sweep a while ago, there very old and poor sweep has been sick and died but sooty has been eating her is thsi noral, do gerbils usually eat there dead friend. It's quite shocking
When sally died geri sat next to her and sniffed her but didn't eat her
Although upsetting sometimes gerbils will try to dispose of deceased tank mates as in the wild the dead body would attract predators so they will sometimes do this. I have not seen this happen personally i am glad to say.
Ahh yeah i guess in the wild that makes sense and i'm glad it didn' hapen with my 2.
Sooty and Sweep where like glue, alwasy together it was quite cute, she may have died during the night so was left to long and thats why it happened probably, i've never read about gerbils killing each other so i hope thats not what happened
Laurerz: Hahah! I think I would be the same, except your bruises would last longer And DD my bloke has been trying to persuade me to let one of my boys go in his flying airplane No chance!

nzcage: Crash went for a wee adventure around my bedroom last night after scurrying away down my friend's leg (he doesn't get to hold him again! ) Such a laid back wee guy, never tried to run and came strolling straight over when we shouted on him

cindy0584: ok so i have a question, we went to the pet store less then a month ago and we got my daughter 2gerbils which they said were 2males. so on friday went to go clean the tank and found little pink bodies, i saw 3 for sure. didnt know what to do so just left
May 21, 2013 14:40:44 GMT -8
cindy0584: them alone. they were very little must have been just born. so saturday they brought one up and left it for a minute where we could see it and it visibly did not look well. alive but not normal.

cindy0584: dont think it would survive but they put it back dsown with them. now i havent seen the babies, should i check for them? i know gerbils dont usually eat their babies. im curious but not sure if i should check
May 21, 2013 14:42:59 GMT -8
cindy0584: any advice?
May 21, 2013 14:44:07 GMT -8
Feeona: Gerbils are pretty good with their babies being handled, that said runts of mine that have died were buried and not cleaned up so perhaps it's best to have a check because having little rotten bodies in the tank can't be good...
