Hazelnuts are the nut of the Hazel tree and are a popular snack food that is eaten around the world. They are eaten in all kinds of culinary dishes and desserts as well.
So can gerbils eat hazelnuts?
Let’s take a look at their nutritional data and find out more.
In particular we are interested in their acidic, water, fat, sugar, salt, phosphorus, and calcium as far as gerbils are concerned.
As you can see hazelnuts contain a lot of phosphorus, calcium, acidic content, and fat, plus a little water.
This makes them a particularly bad food for gerbils to eat because of this.
I know a lot of gerbil owners feed nuts to their gerbils, but they aren’t good for gerbils at all unfortunately.
If they are going to eat one or two, just very occasionally would okay.
