Hamsters are cute little rodents perfect for both adults and children. There are certain breeds for people who want calm, quiet hamsters or playful, energetic hamsters. Popular breeds of hamsters that are great for first time owners are, Campbell’s Hamster, Winter White Hamster, Chinese Hamster, Roborovski Hamster and Syrian Hamster. Hamsters are nocturnal and it is best to play or interact with them in the evening/night. Try not disturb your hamster in the day for it may bite if it is angry at being woken up. Syrian hamsters are the largest hamsters and are the most easy to be tamed. They have big pouches in their cheeks that go all the way down to their hips so they can store food and eat throughout the day.
