Peas are small, green spherical seeds that are eaten as a vegetable. They are eaten widely as an accompaniment to many different culinary dishes.
So can gerbils eat peas at all?
Yes they can but only in small amounts as they are high in sugar content. They can only eat so much sugary foods as they just cant handle sugar in their bodies like we can. They can only have so much.
This is why small amounts of raw peas on an occasional basis is enough for them. A few at a time should be sufficient, as they will eat as many as you will give them.
