I recommend avoiding…sunflower seeds. Many gerbil store foods are loaded with’em. And Gerbils(like mine), can easily get overweight. Use to be able to squeeze through toilet paper rolls. No longer. Just too big. Apple & banana are good as a treat. Not everyday, and not in large amounts. Romaine lettuce is a favorite(loaded with vitamin C). Bought a pine-wood home for both. They did some interior & exterior remodeling, by chewing it to pulp. A coconut shell with a cylinder of corrugated cardboard to act as a tunnel to the shell, works really good as a home. Great video. And Yes…never underestimate the intelligence of a gerbil. Every waking hour is spent on escaping that enclosure.
