Tamino, the Pet of the Day
Name: Tamino
Age: One year old
Gender: Male
Kind: Gerbil
Home: Wendlingen, Germany
   I have very nice pets. They are gerbils and their names are Maximilian and Tamino. This one is Tamino. He has darker colors than his friend you can see behind him. They both play the whole day running! This is because they are special kind of rodent, they are "run mice" also known as gerbils. They are found in the wild in Mongolia. I got my two friends in 2008. We went in to a pet shop, and bought them both so they can keep each other company when I am at school. They were very small then, but now they are very big. The second picture is Tamino's baby picture. Maxi and Tamino both like green vegetables to eat and like running as I said.

    This is a part of their cage, you can see they have a shelf, it is above Tamino's head the pictures. He is a very good jumper, and sometimes hops up there, and then hops back down, like he is doing this for exercise, or to show off. You can see how much he is grown, the shelf is in the same place, but it is not a far jump for him now. They have a big cage, and at the right of the picture you can see the little "cave" they like to hide in. They always bury it in the bedding! He also likes to run and explore when I let them out of the cage for some free time. Tamino is fun and he is the best pet in the world!
