I've got Gerbils (they're my little naughty boys ), so I'll remember you if I have any questions.

Actually, I do have a question. You see, I got my gerbils when they were full grown, and they never became really tame. My mice used to always be begging to be held, but the gerbils don't like handling. Is this because of their age, or are gerbils usually less cuddly? I'm trying to decide if after my gerbils I should get younger gerbils, or go back to mice. I like rodents who are really cuddly and friendly.

Craig my man!!!! I have a Chinese Dwarf Hamster and I have some questions about feeding her. she eats a great variety of foods like hamster mix, nuts, and doggie biscuits to sharpen her teeth. My concern is I can't get her to eat fresh fruit or veggies. If its wet she won't eat it. is that a problem? She seems really healthy and happy.Thanks

maybe she just doesn't like the fruit and veg the hamsters I had eat fruit and veg all the time they loved it but some of them I have read don't eat it because maybe they have drunk too much water b4 hand or just don't like it don't worry about it its not a problem maybe try dabbing it with sum kitchen roll paper then maybe she might eat it but its not a problem she seems 2 b on a very healthy diet from the hamster mix
