Smile Making A Syrian Hamster Care Guide. ;D

I think I'm going to make a hamster care guide. ;) I've had mine for almost 2 years, so I know quite a bit. If anyone would like to post any pics of their syrian (aka teddy bear, golden, ect.) hamsters that'd be appreciated.

Many of my scaly friends from my original tank from 2011 have passed, except for two! I am in the process of re-doing my tank. :)

I don't have digital pics floating around of Puff or Button but I'd like to think I know a bit about hamsters :)

They need variety in their food, actually I stopped using a food dish and opted to scatter their food for free-run time out so they could collect their supper. It stimulates them and gives them something to do other than run in a wheel.

That video above (sorry for the quality) is an example of free running an obstacle (albeit simple) on my bed. With kitties!! haha! Button didn't care.

Make sure you know their minimum requirements (like 360inches of floor space min.) so the care guide is accurate ;) Having a hamster for two years doesnt make anyone an expert :)

1 Male ~ 5 Females
3 Bronze Cories
1 Hamster
Soon, 1 cornsnake!

These pics are of Cozy, a hamster that was found roaming outside who I rescued. I was shocked by how sweet he was for being a stray! He never once tried to bite. We had a few years together before he passed away in his sleep, I'm guessing from old age.







This was his bin cage that I made:

My goodness, they look so much like truncated chubby rats with no tails.

That's complimentary, by the way. :p

Life.
