The big problem I found with these kinds is that they eat the plastic.

"Gerbils like sunflower seeds. If they made more money, they would probably just buy more sunflower seeds. "

Question:

If you catch mice with live traps and the mice are still alive, what would you do with them? I think they probably bite if you get near them with your hands.

I had black and golden argente (with the red eyes).
The black one mated with the gold one and the babies were either black or gold.

You are a nontheist.
What separates us from the animals?
If there is a human race, and in mythology there are such "races" as ogres and trolls, are mice and gerbils also "races"? Is to be spiteful against other mammals therefore a form of "racism"?


6 Reasons You Should NEVER Use Glue Traps

1. Manufacturers of glue traps generally direct consumers to throw away animals along with the trap, leaving the animals to suffer for days until they finally die of stress, starvation, or dehydration—all cruel and painful ways to die.

ANIMATED PHOTOS OF ANIMALS IN GLUE TRAPS CENSORED

PETA often fields calls from people who have discovered small “nontarget” animals hopelessly trapped on these sticky boards. One woman found a glue trap with a bird, two frogs, and a salamander stuck to its surface. All the animals were still alive when she found them but died later, despite her efforts to free them.

What to Do About Wild Mice

http://www.humanesociety.org/assets/images/270x224/animals/mice/house_mice.jpg

Tolerance

Sometimes people live with mice for years and don’t even know it. Other times, they’ll know the mice are there and don’t mind them. And there are those times when the discovery of a mouse requires immediate attention.

Native white-footed and deer mice, who move indoors during the early fall or winter, usually can be humanely live-trapped and returned to the outdoors. House mice would probably not do well if turned out, but many people are willing to try relocating them rather than killing them with traps. If you can move the house mouse or mice to a protected outbuilding such as a shed or garage, you’ll be giving them a better chance of survival.

How to keep mice out

Mice can enter buildings through openings no larger than the size of a dime. Keeping them out of buildings can be a difficult, long-term process. But it is the only effective way to permanently deal with mouse problems.

Carefully look for possible entry points:

Around foundations.
Where utility pipes and wires pass into the house.
Where siding has deteriorated and holes occur.
Cracks in foundations.


Lethal Control

People probably kill more rodents each year than any other wild animal. Most likely the killing isn’t followed by the habitat modification, sanitation, and exclusion necessary to provide a long-term solution.

The simple rule is: lethal control can never be justified without a diligent effort to apply other controls to prevent the recurrence of problems.

Here is what we can do instead:

Industrial designer Roger Arquer came up with four ideas for a non-lethal mousetrap using household objects such as lightbulbs, paper clips, springs and pint glasses. And, of course, cheese.

Humans are one of many species of animal. Strictly speaking, we could probably classify the various human ethnicities as subspecies, but we're not geographically isolated anymore.

I suspect the common depiction of ogres and trolls as other 'races' hearkens from a time when other ethnicities were considered subhuman in some way. Ogres and trolls would be best be described as different species. They probably wouldn't even be in the same family as humans.

More to the point, we have no obligation to any other species (with possible exceptions for domesticated animals, a group in which rodents are not included). They have no obligation to us, either. I don't have to preserve their life. I don't go out of my way to kill them, but that's a personal choice. Things that enter my house die. Things that don't I usually leave alone unless I consider them a threat.

What gerbils can do:
Communicate with thumping, squeeking, ESP, blinking.
Jump high
dig tunnels
have lots of babies. Sit in your hand and be soft like a mini pillow.
cuddle, squeak and look cute
run in a hamster wheel
run mazes
eat insects
make friends with cats
make nests
swim? Yes.

Gerbil ESP

Levin, J. A series of psi experiments with gerbils. Journal of Parapsychology, 1975, 39, 363–365.

Gerbils were able to predict food coming out of one of two shoots 55% of the time. Also gerbils preferred being in pyramids:

I know what you mean, and think he might have trained the gerbil by doing that.
But I think he is being honest and actually the gerbil is reacting to the command.
What you have to look for is whether the gerbil struggles before the boy relaxes his hand. It seems to me that the boy holds the gerbil, then the woman says the word, then the gerbil moves, then the boy relaxes his grip. I could be wrong.

I could be wrong.reading the comments everyone else realizes the same thing I did. but dang! people are horrible! they mock and castigate the boy and his mother! claiming he is hurting the gerbil and all that. even mocking the kid's ears! this is why I think people should disable comments on youtube videos. that poor kid has probably been traumatized by those jackasses.

The best way to make gerbils calm and tame and like to sit in your hand is to have them do this when they are babies so they get used to you.

Prairie voles consoling. This material relates to a paper that appeared in the Jan. 22, 2016 issue of Science, published by AAAS.

A new study reveals that prairie voles console loved ones who are feeling stressed -- and it appears that the infamous "love hormone," oxytocin, is the underlying mechanism. Until now, consolation behavior has only been documented in a few nonhuman species with high levels of sociality and cognition, such as elephants, dolphins and dogs.
