  • Description

    Please note that the product information displayed is provided by manufacturers, suppliers and other third parties and is not independently verified by Petco.

    Syrian hamsters are clean and captivating companion animals that are best kept individually.

    • - The name hamster comes from the German word "hamstern" which means "to hoard"
    • - Hamsters have pouches inside their cheeks allowing them to put large amounts of food in them
    • - Hamsters can squeeze their bodies through any opening as big as their head
    • - Hamster teeth grow continuously throughout their life so they should be provided with chew sticks to prevent them from becoming over-grown
    • - Play during the night and rest during the day (nocturnal), but can adjust to your schedule
    • - Easy to handle but may nip if suddenly awakened from a nap or startled
    • - House adult hamsters separately. Different types of small animals should not be housed together
