Do all gerbils have to live in pairs or can I have just one gerbil? Please somebody answer ASAP.

You can get 1 or 2 Gerbils from the same litter and they will be fine. They can live alone, but I would imagine they would rather have a partner.
You cannot introduce another gerbil to one that you already have because they will fight. (08/10/2009)

I would suggest you be sure you have two gerbils of the same sex, or you might end up with more than you planned on. (08/11/2009)
When my son was young we had 1 gerbil, and we had him for many years, way too long for a gerbil!
So yes, you can get just one. Our gerbil was very happy alone. (08/12/2009)

Gerbils are fine alone. See that they have some toys, chew things, and play with them and they will be good pets. (08/12/2009)
