Can Mice and Gerbils Live Together?

Can mice and gerbils live together in the same cage?

No, mice are very clean animals and tend to get sick more often because gerbils can be quiet messy with their excretement. Plus they have different needs food wise with their dry food & vitamins etc. It is kinder to keep them in seperate cages.

Actually--we've had both and found the gerbils to be less messy as far as concentrating their "potty spot" to one place.

The problem you would probably have is that gerbils generally have stronger teeth than the mice and can be more aggressive--even with their own species.

I'd keep them apart.
