SAVE IT FOR LATER

Hamsters love to save a little for later, tucked away in special pouches in their cheeks. If you decide to share your snack fruits and veggies, skip the chocolate.

Let the burrowing begin.

Hamsters

Because they are nocturnal creatures, their playtime does not fit well with a young child's schedule, so they are not appropriate pets for families with small children.

Syrian hamsters are most commonly kept as a pet. They can be trained and are fun to watch and play with, but should never be kept with other hamsters, as they are very territorial.

Never use a habitat that has a wire bottom, which is not good for their feet. Make sure it has plenty of floor space and climbing parts as well as escape proof! They also like plenty of toys to keep busy.

Hamsters love to burrow and hideout. Provide plenty of comfy carefresh natural paper bedding for them to tunnel and a special place for sleeping. 

Hamsters love to eat! Because hamsters are omnivores, a natural food made to mimic the seeds and grains they would eat in the wild is best, along with daily fresh water. Never feed your hamster chocolate or sweets.

Once a week give them a small amount of boiled egg or meal worms that are rich in protein. A small cube of fruit or vegetable (cauliflower, broccoli, pear, peach, banana) two or three times a week is plenty.
