    I loved them. I also had 2 chipmunks.
    She used to have three, but we showed Alvin what we thought of his trouble-making.

    lol yes, i did think i had two females, but i noticed when i got home that one gerbil was somewhat larger than the other one, and i didn't trust the pet store's guess of "two females" anyway, so i checked myself by putting them both in their clear carrier and comparing... bunker has more, um, parts than his sister did mature gerbils can be *very* easily sexed. he was just 10wks old then, which is when gerbils mature, so my guess is th store got the litter in very young, sexed them once, and didn't bother to check again. i returned the female instead of the male just in case... reeeaallly didn't need little gerbil babies running around!! they didn't have any other single males at the time and i didn't want to further stress him or me, so i decided to wait on it. but if i can find him a friend now i think he'll be much better off... better late then never, no?

    i really hope i get this little guy!!

    why thank you your sugar glider is quite adorable as well

    yes he is so easy to maintain... SO much cleaner than my hamster used to be. the bedding really only gets yucky after almost two weeks (which is just as well because carefresh is expensive!!!) and he doesn't have a cranky or aggressive bone in his body, he's never even attempted to seriously bite anyone (curious nibbling is another story)

    Yeah, I like when things play out like that.

    As for gerbils I found this comic that might provide some entertainment.
