I don't know if it might be the same with Syrians, but gerbils wink as a sign of pleasure and maybe submission/trust. They often wink while eating something delicious. They may wink back if a person winks at them, and very occasionally may wink at a person unprompted (there's no greater compliment than this from a gerbil). It's also lovely to give a gerbil a new food and see them winking away as you know then it's going down well!

I noticed my Robo used to wink when eating too.
