Gerbils enjoy a bath in chinchilla dust or sand, available in pet stores. Sand-bathing improves appearance by reducing oils in their fur. It is also a highly enjoyable activity.


Bathing gerbils in water is not recommended.


Showcase of various custom cages built for gerbils.

Be sure the size and type of cage is manageable and one you can keep clean. It's not all about size. Gerbils need stimulation and ideally time to explore out of the cage: gerbils love to run, climb, dig, nest, take dust baths, tunnel and chew.
