Pet Pop Quiz and Contest

Ugh. The heat returned yesterday. The zoo crew and I just vegged and tried to keep cool. I have to get in the routine of doing outside stuff in the morning when it’s cooler. At least it didn’t keep from from getting the next Pet Pop Quiz up.


Q: What do gerbils do when they are frightened or excited to warn other gerbils?

    If you hear your gerbil thumping his hind legs rhythmically, something has startled him, and he is warning any other gerbils that there might be danger.  misty at weitzelandsonsexcavating dot com

    Gerbils “thump” if they are stressed or excited, similar to rabbits.
