ust because they're small, don't go thinking that you can give gerbils any less care, commitment and love than you'd give to a bigger pet. In this section, we show you by far the best way to give your pets the time of their little lives – which usually last around three years. Gerbils (Latin name Meriones unguiculatus) make great pets, especially for children. They're friendly, inquisitive and generally very happy to be handled; they very rarely bite. Unlike hamsters, who perk up when the lights go down, gerbils are active throughout the day. Just like you. And when we say active, they're very, very fast. So when you're handling your pets, always make sure it's in a safe, contained area.
