is Obsidian - but we call him Ob for short. He's a black mongolian
gerbil, around six months old, from the UK. Why is he special? He loves to
give people kisses, will purr in your hand and loves being fussed over,
and his tail has got a reputation for trying to take off when he gets
excited. It's adorable!
Ob has brown cheeks from the rust where he's been chewing on the mesh
lid of his tank, which he does most of the time unless I'm there tickling
his nose and calling him a loony. He may be demented, but he's got more
character than most humans! And we love him!
