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