gerbil sand and sandboxes Gerbils are desert animals that like to dig in sand to make holes and bathe to keep their fur clean. Gerbils need a daily sand bath to keep their skin and coat in good condition. Especially for fat-tailed gerbils , a sandbox filled with bathing sand is a must ! If a sand bath with chinchilla sand is not available, the gerbil's coat can quickly become greasy. As a result, the coat insulates less well and the gerbil can catch a cold.

Which sand is suitable for Gerbils?

We distinguish two types of sand for Gerbils: digging sand or bathing sand. Chinchilla sand is suitable as a bathing sand. Other types of sand such as play sand do not care for the coat, so they have no care function, only bath sand has this.

NB! Never use shell sand in the sandbox. This sand is too sharp for the Gerbil's skin.

What is the Difference Between Digging Sand, Play Sand and Bathing Sand for Gerbils?

Excavation sand is intended for digging. This sand is usually composed on a clay basis and ensures that dug tunnels remain standing. Play sand is cleaned sand that the Gerbils can dig in, but the sand does not have a good structure and does not support the dug tunnels, so tunnels do not stay in play sand. Bathing sand is intended as care for the animals. Gerbils can't really dig in bathing sand and certainly can't make tunnels. The sand is particularly fine.

How Often Should Gerbils Take a Sand Bath?

Daily! We advise Gerbils to offer a permanent sand bath in the enclosure. It is also possible to set up part of the accommodation as a sand part. In that case, part of the enclosure will be cordoned off and given chinchilla sand instead of standard bedding as bedding. The latter can be especially useful for larger Gerbil groups and ensures that the entire group can bathe at the same time.

When should the Gerbil sand be changed?

We always say as soon as it starts to smell, it needs to be replaced. As we've said Gerbils are very clean animals that don't pee much. This ensures that the sandbox remains quite clean in most cases. In most cases, the problem will be that the animals emptied the sandbox rather than that it starts to smell. By the way, we have a handy trick for the poop! We have special sieve shovels with which the sand can be sieved and therefore lasts longer.
