    backflips?? could be that the others are hogging the toys and shes bored or has too much energy. strange behaviours can also be a sign of stress so id make sure the others arent picking on her, hogging food/toys etc.

    Sometimes gerbils can be a bit hyperactive :) Thats normal. I have a couple of gerbils that do that.

    Be careful though as one of my males managed to get a concussion by doing that :eek:
