Out of all the hamsters I've had I have to say that Syrian hamsters have the most personality. Sticky buns is full of energy and perks up when she hears our voices. My Chinese hamster is so shy you wouldn't even know she was in her cage.
I don't know if we have great luck or what... but Sticky Buns doesn't bite ever! She never bit even when we first got her.
My chinese hamster will just sit in my hand, or in my sweatshirt pocket. Granted she hates us and won't come out and beg for attention like Sticky Buns!
If you want to do hamster research I HIGHLY recommend hamstercentral.com
They have an incredible forum full of TONS of people who have had hams for years. I think it's a British forum though.. so most of the cool hamster stuff you'll see there you can't find in the U.S.
If you really want to get into hamsters, I can tell you everything I know as far as care/diet/housing etc.
