Are gerbils friendlier than hamsters?

Gerbils are way easier to train than hamsters. They thrive for food, and will do anything to get some. Gerbils, however, aren't affectionate. They don't bond with their owners just because the owner is nice to them. They want food, and even with what they want, they will not truly be "loving." Hamsters can bond with owners, though training them is difficult. They will lick you when they are happy with you and satisfied. Hamsters are probably friendlier than gerbils.

Do hamsters bite more than gerbils?

I would say that both could bite, and both have sharp teeth, but, often, hamsters can get scared more easily than gerbils, and gerbils are social animals, so they usually like to be handled a lot, while hamsters would hide in their nest/burrow all day and want to be alone (they are solitary). I believe more likely hamsters would bite.
