is an only five-week-old Gerbil. We think that he's a he, but not
positive on that one quite yet. Anyway, he and his brother are just new
to our home. I called them both Chip 'n' Dale, because Chip looks like
a chipmunk. They are very special little guys. But Chip is camera shy.
I can't get one half decent picture of Chip, only Dale!
Dale is the sweetie, out of the two of them. He doesn't try to get away
much at all. He is just a snugly little guy. :-) Chip is okay too,
but he runs and hides when you come around. He'll need some work!
My three-year-old and five-year-old, just love these little guys - though they
are supervised closely when playing with them, as a gerbil can be very
quick, and we don;t want anything to happen to them! They are special
to all of us.
Dale is everybody's sweetheart, though we hope Chip will learn to be
friendlier, too, in time.
