    After a long time persuading mum into getting some gerbils, we went to petsathome and in the adoption centre ther was 2 gerbils, 'Mother and daughter' who are both 12 months old and males :blushing: :eek:ut:

    They were caled dotty and doris, so we re-named them Drexel and Draven!!

    Wooooop

    They were in the adoption bit because they are sooo 'violent'

    Drexel likes digging and draven like chewing and going in his wheel!!

    Im so pleased with them pic shortly !!!

    They sound lovely, obviously without the aid of piccies I can't tell for sure:D. Are they as savage as Xander?, you are lucky P@H are so well informed or you would never have known.

    How can anyone possibly mistake the sex of gerbils, mice and rats when it is really obvious on them at 4 weeks of age ?!?!?!?!?! I could tell with Kissifur and Mintola at 3 weeks and they were the only baby mice I had ever seen!!

    And as TDM said, only pictures will help us decide if they really are vicious. And if so it just means you will need to buy more :thumbup:

    Def golden agouti, maybe dd agouti.

    They seem like their the lightened form of agouti :)

    Be careful with all that plastic, they WILL chew it and possibly injest it.
