Gerbil

There are various species of gerbil, but the Mongolian gerbil is commonly kept as a pet.

Gerbils are generally diurnal animals (active during the day), although, in the wild, their behaviour often depends on the climate. They construct deep, dark, underground burrows to protect them from extremes of weather and also predators. Gerbils are extremely good diggers and can be very active.They are also very sociable and naturally live in large family groups.

DID YOU KNOW? Gerbils have sharp claws which the gerbils use to burrow their way into the sandy grounds of the desert.
