This was Pepper, he recently passed away. He was the best rodent I have ever owned. He never bit me, never pooped on me, and over all he was just loving and fun. I took him into my science class one time and he had so much fun. He rolled around in his ball the whole period and was just adored by my entire class. Pepper passed away on 8/17/2010. He was the best, and only gerbil a girl could wish for :)
RIP Gerbs, you were the best.
