Acorns are otherwise known as oak nuts and are the nut of the oak tree. They contain a single seed or occasionally two seeds are are covered by a shell that is tough and leathery and borne in a cup-shaped cuple.
They measure between 1-6cm in length and 0.8-4cm in width.
They usually take between 6-24 months to fully mature and they play an important part in forest ecology.
So can gerbils eat acorns at all?
No unfortunately they can’t at all. They are toxic to gerbils.
Also its never a good idea to feed the wild foods as they maybe carrying parasites that may endanger them.
