    Aww :( Ummmm yeah... um how terriable for me... lalalala well hubby won't be able to tell me I can't keep one or two since I now have to seperate mum and dad :( Can't admit I'm too sad about the prospect of babies but I am upset that I'll have to seperate them as they have been together for a year :(

    I hated seperating my little mouse family when I found out Nobby was a boy, at least he might be able to live with his sons since gerbils are sociable.

    Yeah... only thing is I can't even tell I mean I saw Cires on top of Sakura but I can't see any parts that are male they look female to me... Cires must have very small man parts...

    Female rats do that to other females, its a dominance thing, could it just be that?

    Maybe thats why I'm confused because I was so sure they were girls until they were humping :blush2: It just seems strange that this is the first time I've seen it in a year.
    Edit: Sure I'll find out if babies start popping out left right and center.

    I was gonna say, it's strange that they've been together for so long and haven't had babies yet!

    found this on a gerbil website:

    and this on egerbil:


    hope that helped :)
