Roborovski Hamsters are a species of dwarf hamster also known as Robos. These are the smallest of the dwarf hamster species, staying at or less than a third of the size of a Syrian hamster, and are much more active. As with most dwarf hamsters, Robos are very quick. However, Robos tend to be more energetic than other dwarf hamsters. They are also more difficult to tame due to their quick movements but are fantastic to watch. Although hamsters sleep a good portion of the day, don't let their sleeping fool you; Robo hamsters are especially active and energetic animals that love an exercise wheel, run-about ball and anything else they can expend their energy on. Like other small animals, hamsters have teeth that grow continuously throughout their life, so they should be provided with chew sticks to prevent the teeth from becoming overgrown. If you allow a Robo hamster to share your home, it will quickly become a member of the family!
