Anyone know anything about them? What about one gerbil eating another gerbil (both females, sisters actually) and scaring me for life. The owner said it was 'natural', but she also said that it was okay for them to go without water over the weekend because there desert animals anyway. I read on the internet just now that for 'normal' domesticated gernils it isn't 'natural'. Also heard gossip that it was an inbreed unplaned litter... Won't go into details but I work at a Day Care, in a toddler room kids 18mo - 2 1/2yrs. The owner/teacher has been told that it was the appropriate room for them to be in, but she didn't take them out. What a horrifying thing to happen at the day care; the image is stuck in my head (won't describe that either)- 3 seconds was somehow long enough for the image to burn into my mind. I'm glad none of the kids seen it because I caught it first, but embarrassed a parent came in and saw it. (the parent didn't get queasy like me because she the local vets secretary).
