Peaches is our agouti female gerbil that I purchased from TLC Gerbils in March of 2016. My third grade class voted on her name after we narrowed the choices to Mabel, Violet, and Peaches. She is a very gentle gerbil and good mother. She has been handled from the time she was very young, and it shows. We try to play with our babies frequently so they’re used to being held and handled.

Her mother is a dark-eyed honey gerbil, and her father is an ivory. So Peaches carries the recessive genes for the ruby eyes and underwrite dense even though she is agouti.
