Awesome to see a post here about other rodent species, exotic or otherwise. In fact, I've been trying to get my hands on a pair of either Lesser Egyptian Gerbils or a pair of Pygmy Jerboas for least a DECADE.
But, I hear either of these adorable critters are difficult to keep in captivity and breeding them, to get a viable litter AND then get them to adulthood, is even more impossible.
I reside in Texas, but if anyone has a male/female pair of either they are willing to sell, I'd LOVE to make arrangements to do so! I once saw a pair of Jerboas in a Science teachers High School classroom, and he had promised me first pick of their first litter, but then I never heard from him. When I tried to contact him through the school about three months later, he was no longer at there. I was terribly disappointed. Been trying to find some ever since.
SO if anyone has them or knows anyone that does, please toss me an email at Grimalkia@aol.com Would LOVE to work something out!
BTW, in case anyone wants to know that these little guys look like, here's their pictures::
