4 Reasons Gerbils Eat Their Babies

One of the great rumors about Gerbils is that they have been known to eat their babies.

So do gerbils eat their babies really?

This is a strange phenomenon that has often been observed by gerbil owners on an occasional basis.

Unfortunately this does happen occasionally where a mother gerbil feels the need to eat her babies, and it happens because of these reasons;

  1. There is no father to help her with them
  2. They are to sick or weak to look after them.
  3. They feel there is not enough room for their babies
  4. They do not feel they can take care of them
