Birth to Three Years of Age
When I had my first litter of gerbils, like all other first-time 'gerbil grandmas' I was anxious to record every step of the little pups growth, especially as they grow up so quickly; fuzz within a week, eyes open in under three weeks and looking just like mini adults around six to seven weeks!
I strongly recommend taking lots of photos of any litters you have, they're a heartwarming reminder to how tiny and precious those 3+ year old gerbils you have once were!
Not only will these photos of Golden Agouti pups make for something adorable to look at, they might come in useful to assess a rough estimate for a surprise litter's age. In either case, I hope you enjoy.
