Hi All, Here's some update...... I have since sold the first project and tis is my second Sandy Dune......I've even let my 3 week old pups out to play with their Mom!
All the gerbs had their turn...... I even had a hard time getting some of em out!
Winter decided to stay in the sandbath palour and refuses to get out...... It took 1 hr of coaxing before he decide to get out of it!
Next in turn was Saki....... she too loved the sandbath palor..... she took 30mins in there! Even chased her companion Snowball out! "I'm not ready yet!"
Then came the pups n Duchess's turn. DC Klarice (black pup) the first to go into the bathe palour n never came out..... Even when her other 2 siblings when in to bathe...... it took here 45mins to get out.... when she finally realised that her mom n siblings were missing.... keke (I put her mom n siblings back into their tank first!)

I couldn't find sand that looked like desert sand so i bought gray sand and made my sand playground look like a desert mountain! my sister also made a sand playground but her's is Completely black which is probably good becauseher mice are nocturnal! I'll have pics of the gerbils showing it off in a day or two!
i wouldn't leave them in there for that long! you'll tire their poor little legs out! gerbils should stay in the playground for a maximum of 45 mins, as otherwise it may become too stressful for them and they will get too tired. they must always be supervised too while they are on the playground too. i find it hard to believe that you watched them on there solidly for 7 hours somehow surely you went to school at some point today?
oh and could you post some pics of your playground (no excuses this time! you got your new camera yesterday, didn't you?) for everyone to see? it's interesting to see how the designs differ and see new ideas
