Earlier this year I made a video that showed how to make a toy for your gerbils to enjoy. Well here it is! Enjoy!
Just in case you missed anything, here's a list of basic supplies.
Supplies -Paper towel or tp rolls -Toilet paper or tissues -Hay -Treats and food -Other nesting materials (the red crinkle paper in the video, etc.) -Whatever else you can stuff in there for your gerbils!
Here's the finished box from the video
And here's another gift box that I made that I put in Moosey and Mizzy's tank. And they loved it!
What a great idea! I'm sure your gerbils enjoy getting that gift. My gerbils chew through all the wood homes and ignore the toys I buy. Perhaps they will put this to good use. Not to mention a whole lot cheaper to replace.
That's a great idea, Boz. How long does it take your gerbils to get to the treats?
I have no clue. Sometimes they won't touch it for a few days, other times it's half gone by the next morning. LOL
My pair will obliterate anything I put in their tank by the next morning. Then, as I'm filling their food dish before I leave for work, they come up and look at me as if to say, "Was THAT the best toy you could find for us?"
Sorry for a bit of a late response - I've just made one and Jerry LOVES it! Burrowing through the hay, finding the "secret" almonds...I put too much toilet paper in it though, so I took most of it out and gave it to Hans in a half-eaten cereal box. I also added some hay and treats on top of that. I'll post pics soon Wish I had some of that crinkle paper though - looks like a lot of fun! ;D
