Bushy Tailed Jirds

These precious little rodents are relatives of the gerbil, and their care is quite similar. I fell in love with their lovely flowing tails and docile nature, and have kept them as pets since 1996. The average lifespan of our jirds has been about 4 years, and they are low smell as compared to other similarly sized rodents that I have kept. The jirds are very curious and do like to eat small bugs in addition to their basic rodent fare and fruit and veggie treats.
