How many species of gerbils are there?

2 Answers

There are lots of color variations of gerbils but only 2 species are commonly sold for pets. These are Mongolian gerbils and Fat-Tailed gerbils. The fat-tailed gerbils are found in the Sahara Desert natively, and like their name implies, have shorter and fatter tails than Mongolian gerbils.

More than 110 species of gerbils are living in African, Indian and Asian deserts. However, only two species are kept as pets.
