TAKING CARE OF YOUR GERBILS TAKING CARE OF YOUR RABBIT

Excellent information and attractive full-color photographs for the beginning pet owner. Each title begins with a ""Petkeepers' Code"" stressing responsible pet ownership, then provides information on the pet's history, varieties, selection, care and feeding, hygiene and health, questions and answers, and index. Unlike Taking Care of Your Hamster, also part of this series, these titles do not provide information on breeding, or raising young; the author suggests that the pet owner select one male rabbit, or two females, Gerbil fanciers are encouraged to get two females so that they will not be lonely. Specific information is provided on designing appropriate cages. Photos also show a rabbit which has been trained to use a cat litter part. The ""gerbilarium"" provides materials for burrowing and tunneling. Food preferences and problems are outlined--lettuce and beet root will make a rabbit sick, sunflower seeds are addictive to gerbils. The clear, simple text and outstanding photos make these books attractive and useful pet titles.
