Hamsters are a common name for the mammals of the silkworm. Golden hamsters are the most popular and representative hamster species. In the wild, there are many natural enemies that hide in the cave during the day and take sleep and act in the evening. In recent years, pearl hamster varieties have become popular as pets.
Types of hamsters
Hamsters are different in size, color and personality. Syrian hamsters are easy to raise as pets and are safe. But because they tend to fight each other, they should be alone if they are about 10 weeks old. Unlike this kind of hamster, Dwarf Campbell Russian hamsters and Frodo Campbellies are more sociable. But when you are insecure, you tend to bite something. Dwarf Winter White Russian hamsters are social but do not bite anything. If your child likes to observe rather than playing with a hamster, a Roborovsky dwarf hamster is appropriate. These hamsters are usually nocturnal.

Individuality of Perl Hamsters
