So can gerbils eat peanuts?
Let’s take a look a their nutritional data and find out more.
In particular we are interested in their water, acidic, fat, calcium, sugar, salt, and phosphorus content as far as gerbils are concerned.

This means that they are not good for gerbils to eat as they just contain too much fat, phosphorus, fat and acids.
