Key limes, limes, lemons, oranges, tangerines, mandarins, pomelos, satsumas and grapefruits.
So can gerbils eat citrus?
Unfortunately they can’t at all. It is far too acidic for them to handle.
They are also very sweet and gerbils cannot handle the amount of sugar contained within them.
Citrus fruits are a food to avoid giving them.
