The story of the color mouse

Our colorful mouse was once native to the deserts and steppe lands of the Mediterranean region and Southeast Asia.
Our color mouse probably joined us more than 8,000 years ago, when agriculture began and it feasted on the supplies of the granaries. But color mice were not only considered a plague. White mice in particular were considered sacred and used for rituals. About 2000 years ago, selective breeding began in China, and in Japan they started to breed them more than 300 years ago. Then about 150 years ago they came to Europe and began their triumphal procession into our homes here.

The history of the Mongolian gerbil

Great popularity enjoys a special mouse species for several years. The gerbil, also called gerbil. Although this is not quite correct because they belong to the genus of sand mice and have little in common with the species Gerbillus. Mongolian gerbils are native to the desert and semi-desert areas of Central Asia, including Mongolia, China, Kazakhstan and Russia. They are very well adapted to sandy conditions to survive in a very dry and hot environment. Gerbils are a very clean and neat species and have a low inherent odor. Wild Mongolian gerbils have a beige coat and a lighter, almost white belly fur. Through breeding, various coat colors have now developed, from gray, to white, to black, to red, to spotted gerbil, it's all there.

Diet and species-appropriate husbandry of the color mouse

In order to keep our color mice healthy for a long time, you should pay attention to species-appropriate food when feeding them. Even though wild mice will eat almost anything pet food, you should not feed them pet food. They need a very varied diet which should consist of the following. Grains and seeds, herbs, fruits and vegetables, and some animal protein. For nibbling, you should hand twigs or nibble woods. As far as species-appropriate husbandry is concerned, even the enclosures offered in pet supplies are not sufficient. Also a large enclosure is of no use, as long as it is not animal-fair furnished. This includes suitable hiding places and houses, depending on the type of construction of the enclosure you need floors, many play and employment opportunities and also adventure food to promote the collecting instinct.

Nutrition and species-appropriate husbandry of the gerbil

A Mongolian gerbil also needs species-appropriate gerbil food, of course. In the steppes gerbils feed mainly on dry grasses and grass seeds, herbs and their seeds as well as various roots of the existing vegetation, also insects such as crickets are not left lying around. Since the natural animal food is rather meager, low-fat gerbil food with various seeds and grains should be offered in any case. Some vegetables and animal protein from time to time.


The pet food from the specialized trade should not be chosen, since it does not correspond to the animal need. The composition of gerbil food does not speak for a species-appropriate diet and is provided with too much grain, as well as colored or popped components. The enclosure should be the natural substitute for its home. Even if they get their occasional run, however, they spend a lot of time in this enclosure. For this reason, care should be taken to provide an appropriate size. An enclosure with a dimension of 120 x 60 x 80 cm is a minimum area, which should be respected. After all, the gerbils want to move, sleep, burrow and eat.

Health and diseases in color mice

A gerbil or a color mouse does not really show its illness due to its nature. It continues to eat and it tries to stay with the pack. This offers it further protection and one must eat to survive also. For this reason, diseases usually remain hidden from the owner for a very long time. Only when one notices weakness or a loss of weight, it is usually already too late to carry out a treatment. That is exactly why it is indispensable that every owner observes his color mice closely.

Gerbils health and diseases

Also a Mongolian gerbil does not show its illness. It continues to eat just like the color mouse and it tries to stay with the pack. Diseases are discovered thus only late. Only when you notice weakness or weight loss, it is usually already too late and the animal usually does not make it. That is why it is absolutely important that every owner keeps an eye on his Mongolian gerbil.

Color mouse behavior and interaction

Color mice have a distinctive hierarchy among themselves. This is also maintained with rituals. Color mice play with each other by jumping on each other or chasing each other. Then they usually also make sounds. Color mice are also very clean and spend a lot of time cleaning each other. So it is obligatory to keep more than one color mouse. Each pack marks the territory with feces and urine. Color mouse females are very peaceful among their conspecifics and it can happen that they even help each other in raising the young. The males usually have conflicts due to rank fights.

Behavior and interaction of Mongolian gerbils

The first rule is that Mongolian gerbils need at least one conspecific! Keeping a color mouse and gerbil together is also not recommended. It can come to biting. Because of the species specific similarity with mice or even degus, it is assumed that these animals can be kept together. This is an absolute fallacy and must not be practiced under any circumstances. The animals chase each other and bite each other to death. Even the encounters outside the enclosure in the run usually end bloody.
