Woody, the Pet of the Day
Name: Woody
Age: Nine months old
Gender: Male
Kind: Gerbil
Home: New York, USA
   This 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.
