Gerbils are actually the easiest thing to care for it seems compared to the other things I have(hamsters, mice, rats, sugar gliders, guinea pigs, rabbits, reptiles and other larger things). Just use a simple hide which could be a box, some shredded paper or shavings for bedding, a water bottle, and some lab blocks. Anything plastic or paper they will devour and shred so don't spend much on getting fancy pet store products. They produce the smallest amount of urine and feces out of all small animals due to their origination. Not to mention they are super sweet and do the oddest but most entertaining things. I'd suggest them to anyone wanting a good hardy little pet.
