    Okay... so uhm, I have 2 gerbils.
    Well somehow they escaped last night...
    so I was looking for them today.
    And finally I spotted one! It's the black one, Yumi.
    So I caught her after a while of trying to scare
    her out from under the bed. Well when I did,
    she bit me on the finger SO HARD THAT I COULD HEAR IT!!!
    It hurts really bad.. T_T she never bit me this hard before!
    I wish she'd just understand I want to help her.
    But at least I caught her..
    So.. uhm... does anyone have any pets themselves?
    Or know a good way to catch the other gerbil?
    IDK, I guess I'm just here to complain. XD
    Sorry.

      When my hamster made her first jail break, I looked for her around my room. I finally found her in a tissue box.

      Tips to catch your other gerbil:
      -Look where he/she would find something he/she likes(tissues, plastic, etc.)

      How did they get out? I'd tape down the place where they got out(make sure they can't chew it)

        Oh, I was being a dope and accidentally left the lid open. XD
        But yea, now I have something heavy over it JUST IN CASE.
        Thanks though.. I'll try that. ^_^ Maybe I should put some bait out.
        && What kind of hamster do you have? (sorry, random question)

          Short haired. She's brown/gray and white. I had 2 dwarf hamsters before her.

          My cousin has 2 gerbils and she was told they were both boys. I come to visit and theres nine of them running around in the cage. They had babies!

            Your hamster sounds cute...
            && ROFL, you know how many times
            I've heard stories like that? I think
            the petstore's should know what they're selling
            BEFORE they sell it. @~@
            Luckily that hasn't happened to me. I mean, not that I wouldn't
            like any more pets, but my parents would flip! XD

              I've been bitten by my pet rabbit, when it was still alive, and by my hamster, when it was alive. It was a long time ago.
              And my hamster escaped multiple times. It's was very clever apparently.
              Tips for catching a Gerbil? Bate it. Get it's good or something else it likes and leave it the floor, then move away so it can't see you and get ready to catch it.

              And I also was told my hamsters were both female. I got a shock when they had babies.
              The male one was called 'Butterfly' ¬_¬(My sister named it, not me)

                If your gerbils are escaping from their cage then there is something wrong with it.
                I had a hamster until 3 weeks ago (it died naturally.) While it was alive, it never escaped and it never bit me.

                  I had a pet angelfish, he only had one eye and swam upside down because his swim bladder was no good. D: He died two weeks ago- R.I.P Batman. ;-; Now I'm waiting for my dad to 'gut' the tank so we can get new fish. -allergic to animals-

                  My aunt's rabbit bit me when I was about eight or nine. D: I still have the scar on my hand- it went pretty deep into my skin and was pretty painful. ;-;

                  If gerbils like similar food to hamsters, then I'd reccomend Sunflower seeds or ordinary peanuts as bait (literally, plain peanuts that haven't been 'treated' or salted or roasted or anything)

                    This is very serious. All Gerbils carry a disease called Deathly Gerbil-bite Syndrome and the only way to tell if you have it is if you can hear the actual bite, which you did. You have approximately 2 and a half days after the bite to seek medical attention or else you will die a slow and painful death in which tiny gerbil babies eat out your insides. Good luck.

                      You go to walmart, and buy a mouse trap, put food on the end and when he takes it, *SNAP*, you got him! Oh alive?

                      The sell live traps for mice and rats, same concept right?

                      When it comes to biting the first 2 pets of mine that come to mind are my dog, who's only 1 year old and still likes to give me a playful nip every once and a while, and my 3 ggeckos, which periodicly bite me when i surprise them by accident.

                        Thanks for your help everyone. ^_^ I actually caught her yesterday! She came right to me when I called her name. XD

                        @Vendak;
                        Actually, they escaped because I left the lid opened. ROFL I'm such a dope!

                        @Alex;
                        Dang! Thanks for warning me earlier! T_T
                        How am I ever going to complete my National Dex now!?

                          I did got bitten and scratched by my cat multiple time. xD Though, it doesnt hurt, when she bites or scratch me, it means she loves me and wants to play. xD She always scratch and bite me most.(did I tell you that she was biting my toes when I was sleeping xD)

                          Catching a gerbil? Try to bate it.

                            Do you have any idea how annoying it is when you type like that? Stop hitting enter so much.

                            Put some food out and see if it goes to it.

                            I have a cat, it's so cute. It is extremely hyper (but it's a kitten, so that's expected.) When you play with it, it tries to latch onto your arm with it's claws, sometimes it gets you. Also, if you walk away and it isn't done playing it will latch onto your leg and nibble on your leg. Very cute, very painful. X3
