A pair of duprasi gerbils, _cute animal.jpg


 these unusual AFRICAN GERBILS are cute and friendly  

Duprasi are also known as the fat-tailed gerbil and sometimes as Doops. Some people consider them a missing link between gerbils and hamsters. Their wild habitat in Northern Sahara (North-western Egypt, Libya, Tunisia, and Algeria) is composed of sparsely vegetated sands sheets and rocky deserts. They are naturally insectivorous and would live in sandy burrows in the wild.

Lenny is a beautiful Duprasi who came to live at Our Amazing Animal World when his previous owner was no longer able to look after him. He was very insecure and unsure of himself at first but soon grew in confidence and now loves people.
