Bushy Tail Jird


Other name:
 Bushy Tailed Jird, Bushy Tailed Dipodil, Jirds Bushy Tails

Scientific name: Sekeetamys calurus

Country / Place of origin: Middle East

History: Bushy Tail Jirds are native of Egypt, Israel, Jordan, and Central Saudi Arabia near the shores of the Red Sea.

Pet Gerbils are descendent from the original twenty pairs of Gerbils transported from Mongolia and bred in other countries like Japan (since the 1930s), the United States (since 1954), the United Kingdom (since 1964), and in many other countries thereafter. They are more closely related to hamsters than to mice.
