Before looking at the photos of my gerbils you should know where gerbils originate from and what their names are. The gerbils come from the sandy deserts of Central Asia and North Africa. My gerbils names are Pepito and Smokey and they have been very close since they were born, They are both brothers actually, and they also have a third brother but My Mom decided to only get the two gerbils because of the price. An interesting fact about gerbils is they are very skittish because of their gerbil instincts to stay away from possible predators. I hope these photos captivate what a day in the life of gerbils is like.
