Gerbil toys for active and agile small animals – at Maxi Zoo
They are playful, proactive and have a lot of fun: gerbils live in the open in larger groups and should be kept at least in pairs due to their pronounced social behaviour. They need a lot of space in the cage and sufficient toys so that they do not get bored and do not develop any behavioural abnormalities in the long run. The right gerbil activity consists of a varied mix of different games and hiding places that keep their mind and body fit and healthy.
The running wheel is the ideal toy for gerbils
The small animals travel several kilometres a day. When keeping them as pets, it is therefore particularly important that they are able to exercise properly. An running wheel is ideal for those animals who like to move. In it, they can use up all their energy and get really active. Make sure you buy the right size. After all, the animals should not overstretch and injure themselves.
Jumping, climbing and discovering: Activities that gerbils need to keep busy
To avoid boredom in the gerbil home, these agile animals need species-appropriate activity options. These small animals have outstanding balancing skills and are true climbing masters. Ideally, the home should therefore consist of several levels equipped with all kinds of gerbil toys. Climbing houses, caves, tunnels, seesaws and swings invite the small animals to curiously explore. In addition, they can always be adapted or repositioned. Grazing balls or grass balls are also particularly popular. These are made of natural materials and can be nibbled on without any problems. They also contribute greatly to the dental hygiene of the small animals, as they encourage the natural wear and tear of their teeth.
Keep your gerbils' body and mind fit and healthy with an active toy
Intelligent toys are a welcome change for gerbils. The little animals are smart and always need exciting challenges. Toys like balls or rotating discs, depending on the model, can be filled with treats and thus arouse the animals’ special interest. Especially since in their natural habitat these animals spend most of the day looking for food and are used to being active in order to get it.
