Gerbil FAQ

Very comprehensive and up to date information based on "The Gerbil Mailing list" (see the following link)

"Gerbil Mailing List"

Experts like Julian Barker and many others too (there are more than 100 subscribers from all over the world registered) can help you resolving problems, will answer your questions on care, breeding, genetics and health problems of gerbils and... of course they are curious to listen to your gerbil stories.

The Gerbil Mailing List is the international forum of the gerbil breeders and owners.

Since Feb 01, 2002, this list ist hostet bei topica.com and you can easily subscribe by sending an (empty) mail to gerbils-subscribe@topica.com

 


Homepage der RML

Die Gerbil-Mailing-List ist sicher unersetzlich, aber manchmal ist es vielleicht doch bequemer, wenn man nicht erst alles vorher auf Englisch übersetzen muss. Deutschsprachige Rennmauszüchter und -Liebhaber treffen sich hier zum regelmäßigen Gedankenaustausch, zur gegenseitigen Hilfe oder einfach nur zum "Ratschen"...

Bdewman's Gerbil Page

This is one of the many new gerbil sites with really many informations, but when I compared the genetic section, it seems, it isn't entirely up to date... (some new genes are missing and there isn't an albino gene cc discovered until today. Yes, I think Brian means c(h)c(h) the himalayan variant of an incomplete albinism, but it should be named as such...). Nevertheless a good page!

Gerbils in History!

A 100% purely factual account of the Gerbil King's historical exploits. :-))

"Attack of the Mutant Japanese Gerbils",
The Japanese Gerbil Phenomenon ;-)

In fact, it would seem that this unique breed is an as-yet-unstudied mutant strain of the ever-popular empty-aquarium-dwelling domestic gerbil and/or hamster. Japan is literally crawling with rodentia of gigantic proportions. And how do the people of this island country feel? (Don't doubt it! This report is proofed by many detailed photos... ;-)).

Interesting Facts About Gerbils ;-)

You must read these still mostly unknown 'facts about gerbils', you wouldn't find in any other book or literature. Many thanks to Mike Hoffmann ;-)))

Signs You're a Gerbil Slave :-))

... ;-))

Don't forget to bookmark and save this site ;-)

Do you know some good gerbil links you couldn't find above? Please mail to me!  I'm Ehrenfried, living in Munich.
