Which is smarter a gerbil or a hamster?
Neither of them is smarter than the other, but gerbils are better for pets unless you''re nocturnal too.
Hi, if you like a active fun and playful pet go for a gerbil, but if you want one that will snuggle up with you then go for a hamster. Gerbils hardly urinate so if you want to get it out and not change its cage as much go for the gerbil. hamsters are smarter and easier to train but are nocturnal but gerbils come out in the day.
