The NYHH gerbil babies have been named! With the help of my trusty entymologist friend Lorenzo, I sexed* the babies last night and then gave them names.
Pictures to come tonight, as well as website updates (I can only do that from home)... but for now, the names and living arrangements of my gerbil babies:
Mama Belle, who lives with her two daughters, Melanie and Scarlett.
Her three sons, Charles, Rhett, and Ashley, live together in a bachelor pad.
And then her son Clark Gable was adopted this morning by a family from Long Island (along with Friedrich).
If anyone can guess the full names of Mama and her babies, you win a prize!
* Get your mind out of the gutter! Sexing means separating them by gender so that they can't reproduce.
