Thumper!

This is Ernie. He is a Mongolian gerbil. Sometimes gerbils do funny things! Gerbils will thump their back feet to warn other gerbils of danger.
Ernie would like to demonstrate his thumping skills with this little video:

are you sure it's not the ole soft shoe?

Shaggy, Scooby and Scout said...

How absolutely adorable! We trust Bert is safely tucked into the hidey hole because of Ernie's diligence. Apparently Ernie he thinks your mom with a camera is a real and present danger!!!!!

All our guinea pig Toby does is "wheek" for veggies.

Aww this might just be one of the most adorable things I've ever seen! He seems like a very nervous gerbil, but I'm sure if the rest of the world seemed as big to me as it does to him, I'd be a little nervous too!

Ernie is really a cutie. I have a soft spot for tiny critters but have avoided ever bringing one home--for a wonder :)

Ernie looks like he's the Lord of the Dance! :)

LP said...

We wonder if they make tap shoes small enough for Ernie ?! How cute would that be!!
We never knew gerbils thumped.He must feel very acclimatised and at home to demonstrate his natural instincts.Cool!

Pricilla said...

The publicist had gerbils when she was younger. A friend of her fathers gave her two boy gerbils. I am sure you can imagine how this turned out! She soon had 17 gerbils! Her mother was not happy....but she loved all of her gerbils.

Ernie's gots some rhythms

Sparkle said...

Ernie sounds like he is tap dancing! What danger was he seeing - was Harley staring at him?

Grace said...

Could that be gerbil Morse code?

Junior, Orion and Sammy said...

We couldn't even tell his little leg was moving, but we could see the rest of him moving. Was there a cat getting too close and that is why he was sending a warning?

The Island Cats said...

It sounds like he's tap-dancing!

Keisha said...

That was good! I like his funny noises. He's cute. :)

BeadedTail said...
