Hamsters are cute little rodents that have made popular pets in recent times. They are fairly easy to maintain, do not cost a lot, are very cute, and fun to play with and that is why many people enjoy having them around.
They make it easy to have a pet because they do not need to be taken for walks and you can just let them run around in a small area. So they have become a favorite for those with small spaces.
Even though they only need a small space, they do nonetheless need enough space to move around. Even if you put in a wheel, they still need some room.
And they need to do some moving around because that will help them live a healthy life. But they generally only live for a couple of years.
Syrian hamsters are usually about 6 inches long an prefer to be alone in a cage and not share space with another hamster. They like to stay up at night and sleep during the day.
Dwarf hamsters are a bit smaller coming in at 4 to 5 inches in length. They are a very popular choice for those looking for a hamster.
Chinese hamsters look very similar to dwarf hamsters but they are different. They prefer to be alone and not share their space with another hamster.
So if you want to have a couple of hamsters you will want to go with the dwarf hamsters over the other options. If you are only interested in getting one then you can look at one of the other two.
Whichever choice you make, you are bound to enjoy playing with your new hamster. Just keep in mind which one would better suit your needs based on how many hamsters you are looking to have.
