Gerbils





We returned last night from four days in Michigan and the baby gerbils are like new creatures. All very cool. We can pick them up now, and are supposed to, so they get used to people. They still look something like salamanders. Their eyes are closed and they will be blind for a few more weeks. Bob still digs a nest/hole and buries them. It's hard to even think about how many animals must consider them easy protein in the wild.
