Gerbilariums

Gerbils are widely known for their chewing and gnawing, which is why gerbilariums are a perfect alternative to a gerbil cage. The Rosewood Abode Gerbilarium is made from strong, durable plastic which can withstand gerbils’ gnawing while providing a safe and light environment for your gerbil to leave in. What’s more, these gerbilariums only feature a few bars on the roof of the tank to provide ventilation – highly reducing the likelihood of your gerbil chewing the bars.

Gerbilariums Should Feature Space to Burrow

Gerbilariums should always feature an adequate area to fill with sawdust or sand where your gerbil can dig and burrow. Besides the option to burrow, gerbils should also be given bedding that they can ‘nest’ in – specialised gerbil bedding or even shredded kitchen roll works perfectly. Avoid using newspapers and cotton wool – newspaper ink is toxic and cotton wool can cause a blockage if swallowed.
It should also contain a designated sleeping area for your gerbil which is sheltered from light; gerbils go through several waking and sleeping patterns through the day so their sleeping area should be as private and cosy as possible.
When it comes to the issue of chewing bars, it may not always be practical to buy a fully plastic gerbilarium. Placing chew toys and treats in your gerbilarium or cage will help to keep your gerbil occupied and prevent them from chewing the bars. Please be aware that if a gerbil does chew on the bars of their cage, it can damage their teeth – not to mention being very noisy so bare this in mind if your gerbilarium will be placed in a bedroom.

Great Value Pet Supplies

Gerbilariums should be placed out of direct sunlight in rooms where there isn’t too much noise. Harsh temperature changes should also be avoided; temperatures that are too low can send your gerbil into hibernation. Ideally gerbils should be kept in an environment of average room temperature – between 20 and 22 degrees Celsius.

A Great Range of Gerbilariums

Gerbilariums are similar to hamster cages but with one main difference: they provide a large area deep enough for your gerbil to burrow. Gerbils love to dig so any cage which doesn’t allow space for this shouldn’t be used to house a gerbil. Not to mention the fact that their sharp teeth can chew through pretty much anything over time, which is why it’s important to purchase a cage which is specifically designed to withstand such gnawing!

Keep Your Pet Happy in a Gerbilarium

Even though gerbilariums give your pet space to burrow, gerbils are social creatures and if they are kept solitary they can easily get bored. There are plenty of ways in which you can help to keep your gerbil entertained, such as buying them toys such as tunnels, huts and chewable treats – take a look at our fantastic range for more inspiration. Hiding tasty treats in the sawdust in their gerbilariums is a good way to keep your gerbil happy, or why not take a rabbit bowl and place some chinchilla sand in the bottom? Not only will your gerbil love it but it helps to keep them clean too!
Keeping your gerbil happy doesn’t necessarily have to cost money though. There are plenty of ways around the home to keep your pet busy and entertained; empty toilet roll tubes and even toilet roll itself – provided that it is ink free – is great fun to your gerbil, they’ll love making bedding out of it, even if it won’t last too long!
Let your gerbil play in the bathtub and introduce toys that they only get to play with when they come out – this will help keep things interesting for your gerbil when they do come out of their gerbilarium

Choosing a decent gerbilarium

As with all pets, it’s essential to make sure that your gerbil is kept happy and healthy. One of the easiest and most important ways of doing this is to ensure that you invest in a decent gerbilarium; one that allows your pet to burrow to his heart’s content, provides a secluded area for sleep and plenty of entertainment and activities to keep him busy!

Our gerbilariums provide everything your pet needs to keep him healthy and active – so all you need to do is sit back and be entertained! Gerbils are social creatures and enjoy the company of their own kind and humans too; this is just one of the reasons why they make such great pets. Our gerbilariums provide plenty of room so, should you choose to buy another gerbil or breed your current pet; you want have to buy a new cage!

Gerbils are generally active during the day, so there’s no need to worry about their chewing keeping you awake! Because gerbils have such sharp teeth, it’s important to ensure that they are provided with toys/materials for them to keep their teeth worn down – otherwise they’ll find alternative things to chew on, which is often their cage! Though our gerbilariums are specifically designed for strength and durability against gerbils’ gnawing teeth, it’s a good idea to check around every now and again for signs of chewing. This is why toys are also important – it stops their attention wandering to escaping!

Most small rodents enjoy some type of wheel, including gerbils – though it’s important to purchase a wheel that is specifically designed for gerbils as they can trap their tails in wheels with bars. Wooden blocks and toys are always welcome with gerbils as they provide hours of entertainment and the perfect object on which to chew.

Another attraction of keeping gerbils as pets is the fact that they’re very clean; gerbilariums only require a thorough clean out about once every two or three weeks, though if they’re using one area as a toilet it will require cleaning more regularly.
