    Thank you! I got my Dwarf hamsters A day ago! I have not had a hamster in 7 years, I decided to get 2! Due to missing those kinds of small pets. I named the Energetic one Azura and the sleepy one Aphrodite. They’re really jumpy and bite 24/7, i hope your tips help 🙂 I would love to be able to hold them. I know they aren’t used to being held.

    Hello, I’m thinking about getting a Dwarf Winter White Russian hamster and I was wondering how hard they are to tame and how are they around younger children if they are calm because I can’t find anything super-accurate online thank you!

    My hamster is super sweet but she’s just a very active girly🤣🥺💗 I love my Smokey baby so much and I really want to have Smokey as cuddly as Rosie 🥺💓

    I got two roboRoski hamsters around two months ago and they got along great, and were supper tame for the first month. Out of nowhere they started fighting so I separated them into separate cages immediately and left them to settle for around a week as I knew they would be stressed. After that I have tried to hold them separately and both bite. May this mean they are traumatised? What do I do is this normal x

  26. Kanari Ninomiya on July 1, 2020 at 11:21 am

    Our hamsters likes to bites us especially the female one. The male will act as if he likes to be handled but he will also bite you. 😂

  27. Crystal Negrete on July 1, 2020 at 11:23 am

  32. Amelia Mayor on July 1, 2020 at 11:29 am

    Every time i try to hold my hamster DJ. She just bites, so we stopped handling her, is that ok or do we need to keep on handling her? So she doesn’t bite?

  33. Amelia Fleur on July 1, 2020 at 11:30 am

    I’m getting a russian dwarf hamster in about 3 weeks but i don’t know when i should put the bedding in. Should i put the bedding in the cage now or a week before I get the hamster? <3

  34. Jack Grant on July 1, 2020 at 11:34 am

    Hi, I’m considering getting a dwarf hamster. My only experience is with cats and farmyard animals. Unfortunately i live in a very small flat so i cant get a cat or dog or anything that needs space. Is there any type of dwarf hamster you would recommend in particular? Also, what size cage would you recommend? I heard somewhere that cages for rodents were often far too small for them, so i want to check with an animal lover first before i buy a cage. Do they like the tunnels or are they just a gimmick that look cool to people?

  35. Simran Pahwa on July 1, 2020 at 11:34 am

    Such a cute hamster. Also I loveeee your nails!

  38. Psychopath_K27 on July 1, 2020 at 11:39 am

    Are female hamsters more friendly than males or is there no difference? I’d like to get a hamster❤️

  39. Larissa Falavigna on July 1, 2020 at 11:40 am

    My dwarf hamster used to be very very calm and nice and would never bite me (I got him on August 2019), then a few months ago he was really annoyed because I had cleaned his bin cage and when I tried to pick him up he gave me such a bite I started bleeding and he wouldn’t let go hahah and now it has happened 3 times already, I think he knows that if he bites I’ll let him go 🙁 I love him though

  40. Lemon cray UwU on July 1, 2020 at 11:41 am

    I just got my Russian dwarf hamster Cuddy is ADORABLE

  47. Alana Kealani on July 1, 2020 at 11:46 am

    I just got a dwarf yesterday from someone who has had him for over a year. I’m really experienced with animals but this is only my second hamster since childhood. He’s very outgoing and will come right up to you in the cage and he lets you pick him up and keep him moving but the moment he’s not doing anytning or the moment our fingers are in reach he will nibble at them and won’t stop it’s like he’s pulling on it and he only does it to fingers. He will walk onto our hands, take treats from us and eat in our hands but he won’t stop nibbling he has even broken skin from excessive nibbling in an area. (I say nibbling because I have been bitten by a hamster before like teeth all the way sunken in my skin and this is not that at all)we make sure our hands are clean always and we never lift him higher then his enclosures height.

  48. Golden Dime on July 1, 2020 at 11:48 am

    I can’t do this he runs everytime I put my hand in there and just sit there and today he bit me I had him for 3 weeks I don’t think he trust me I just can’t train him

  49. womp womp on July 1, 2020 at 11:48 am

    the first time i held my dwarf hamster, it took a shit in my hand

  50. 012Kelsey_TheAngel on July 1, 2020 at 11:50 am

    while doing this and is afraid your hamster will bite
    i suggest you wear gloves and when you’re brave enough, use your bare hands
