Banana peels are also known as banana skins in British English and are the outer covering of the banana fruit. Bananas are one of the most popular fruit eaten in the world today and are consumed widely with a yearly production of over 145 million tonnes in 2011. Once the banana peel is removed it is normally discarded
So can gerbils eat banana peels at all?
Yes they can in small amounts but nothing more than that. Make sure it is chopped up into small pieces just large enough to hold securely in their paws. One or two pieces should suffice for them as any more may hurt their stomach.
