Which should I get? Gerbil, mouse, hamster?
Which do you think makes the best pet? I can get a hamster from one of my sisters friends who is giving hers away for free with the cage and everything, but I know hamsters are nocturnal and I'd prefer to have a pet that's not noctural. The only upside I see with the hamster is that they don't need cage mates. (I don't know which type of hamster it is. I hope its a syrian, because I like the bigger hamsters better, but if it's not I wont complain haha)
I think a gerbil would be a good option too because since they are desert animals originally, I heard they don't poo as much so they don't smell as much (not that the other choices stink either, but i just read that somewhere) Plus gerbils are just so cute(: I love their little furry tails haha
and a mouse, which is the best to get? Females or males? I read that if i get females to get a couple but if i get males, to only get one. Is this true? (I still need to do some more research.)
Anyways, which do you think makes the best pet and why?
