Out of these two pets, which one is the smarter of the two? I figure hamsters, just because they seem to be less lazy, while gerbils always lounge around it seems. What are your thoughts on this?

Honestly, I'm not sure.

I've never owned gerbils so I can't really answer this. And I've only owned one hamster.

I will say yes hamsters can be smart. I have a routine with my hamster where she knows when I'll come to give treats and such and she knows exactly where to go every time. However, they aren't the brightest at times either. I'm not sure if there's a good way to compare, I would say it depends on the individual :)
