Gerbil

A gerbil is a small mammal of the order Rodentia. Once known simply as "desert rats", the gerbil subfamily includes about 110 species of African, Indian, and Asian rodents, including sand rats and jirds, all of which are adapted to arid habitats. Most are primarily diurnal (though some, including the common household pet, do exhibit crepuscular behavior), and almost all are omnivorous.

An easy way to save on the costs of gerbils while giving them extra activities is to replace a large amount of new bedding with large strips of newspaper. Your gerbil will shred them up and create his own bedding.
