Camera Critters: Duprasi

Can you resist those eyes? It's a duprasi, a gerbil species. They are also known as fat-tailed gerbil and this is why:
They store fat in those tails, like a camel in its hump. This little guy was a guest at my house for a short while on his way to his new home after he had been given up for adoption at a shelter.

He has such inquiring eyes!
Someone gave him up - how sad. So nice to hear he found a new home.
