||Nine months old|
||New York, USA|
is my gerbil, Woody. I got him for my eighth birthday. He was three months
old when he became my pet. His fur color is called nutmeg.
He lives with his mate, Sarah, and together they have had many babies.
Even though he and Sarah are both nutmeg, their pups are many colors:
brown, white, cream, grey, and black. Woody is now a grandfather, and
he isn't even one year old yet!
His favorite activity is chewing. He will chew almost anything,
especially clothes. He always wins cardboard chewing contests in our
home. Woody can do several tricks. He can sit on my hand and hold his
tail with his paw. He can also hold a small umbrella in his paw.
Woody is very sweet and friendly. He loves to be held, and he loves for
me to stroke his fur. He sits quietly with me and watches television.
He is very special to me and my family because he's so nice and never
bites. He's the best gerbil I could possibly have.
