Our gerbils had babies! James said she was fat, I thought it was all the food we left for them while we were gone in Colorado - Heather said she felt babies move in her tummy though. They are cute, and a handful for their parents. The daddy helps out a lot, he cleans them, and they all sleep together as a family. Now they are big enough that they are climbing out of their nest. their nest is up high at the top of the cage, and they slide down a tube to the bottom - then the mom tries to round them all up again, carry them in her mouth like a cat back up to the nest. You can see the mom get all frustrated trying to keep them together. They are cute!!!!
