Pet Pop Quiz Answer

'Gerbil - Nutmeg' photo (c) 2007, benmckune - license: http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/2.0/Gerbils were one of the first pets I remember having. Frisky and Finicky were their names. I could sit and watch them for hours. Fortunately, they didn’t do this to often.

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

A: Gerbils thump their feet as an alert to other gerbils.  It’s a form of their communication. They also use it to show they are ready for mating.
