Nutmeg

Gerbil Breeding & Genetics

(aa, CC, ee, G*, P*)

By Molly Kalafut

Nutmeg is one of my favorite gerbil colors. As babies they start out a lovely golden color, then molt into a dark golden with black tipped fur. Throughout their lives, as they continue to molt visible lines can be seen where they are halfway lighter and halfway darker. In old age they gradually molt to a lighter and lighter color.
