Phase 1

2003 - 2004

Shooting Star Gerbils began with a single breeding pair in early 2003:
Snowball (DTW female) and Oreo (Black male).

We later added Kotan, a Siamese female.

All of our our original gerbils descended from these three.

Other noteworthy Phase 1 gerbils:

We stopped breeding in 2004, and our population eventually dwindled down to two gerbils:
Akanbo (Siamese female) and Haiiro (Black male).

In 2006, Akanbo was introduced to a female companion, and Haiiro was bred to continue our original line into Phase 2.
