Breed for you- Syrains! There are calm.loving friendly. Background
Hamsters were first discovered in Syria, but they are native to many parts of the world. The name they go by today is derived from the German word “hamstern,” which means “hoard”—because that is exactly what they do with any extra food they might find. Although their downright cuteness makes them popular with prospective pet parents, these animals have some special requirements that must be met in order for them to be happy and healthy.

The most common pet hamster is the six-inch Syrian, also known as the golden hamster or teddy bear hamster. Syrians have a lifespan of two to three years. Dwarf species such as the Siberian, Roborovsky’s Djungarian, and Chinese are smaller than Syrians, at about two to three inches. They have an average lifespan of one to two years.

Although they’ve been viewed as the quintessential pet for kids, hamsters are nocturnal by nature—which does not fit well into a young child’s schedule. If you are up in the wee small hours or won’t be bothered by your pet’s nightly digging, scratching and wheel-running, a hamster may fit in nicely in your home.

Hamsters are rodents belonging to the subfamily Cricetinae. The subfamily contains about 18 species, classified in six or seven genera. Hamsters are crepuscular. In the wild. They are most active around dusk and dawn, which has led many people to mistake them for being nocturnal.

I had two hamsters I bought at the same time, a female and a mail. The female died and the male would not eat or drink and kept running in his wheel. I took the wheel away but he still would not eat. He eventually died. I guess he was sad.
