Hi! I went to Petsmart yesterday, and me and my mom saw these REALLY cute hamsters. They were males, but they had big lumps by their tail! It was very strange, but the hamsters were SO SWEET! Seriously, they were so cute and sweet but the thing I didn't like about 'em was those lumps! I've never seen anything like it! Well, I might also get a hamster for Xmas because I didn't tell anyone what I wanted for it, and I made a new wish list and it says, "I want a cute hamster, plus all the items to take care of it!" Well, it said like a food bowl, exercise wheel and all of that stuff. ok, gotta go!
I am going to buy two baby golden hamsters at petland and it will be my first time. I have some questions, how expensive are they to keep and what recommendations do you have on some good products?

Hey, I'm kinda worried about my hamster. Her name is Sammy. She is a girl. Anyways she has this little black spot on her stomach. Some of the websites say it is scent glands and some say it has something to do with hair loss and i should go see the vet.
I dont know what to do. So anyone who knows alot about hamsters and has any idea what this is then please comment back before this thing on her stomach gets out of control!
so please comment back!:D
Hello everyone, by the way I'm Carlo from the Philippines. Got 7 dwarf hamsters in our house. Last october 26, my hamster named booboo gave birth, but after an hour the baby hamsters died. She didn't know how to take good care of the baby hamsters because it is her first born. I just would like to ask if it is normal in first timers female hamster. Thank yah guys....:)
Dear, animal-world. I am thinking about buying my first ever baby golden hamster. But I'm worried about money for food, cage, treats, milk and other things. And I don't know how much milk and when to feed it milk. And I need some advice about how to bathe it and about if its teeth or claws get too long. please help!
Hi, my name is Hannah Wilkie. I have a golden brown teddy bear hamster. His name is Hennrey. His birthday is December 7th, and this year he turns one. Everybody in my family is crazy about him. He has never bitten anyone and is really sweet but crazy at the same time. His nicknames are Lil Dude, and Lil boy.
Question: if i have a panda hamster: named Raider, are they known to bite their fur? or can it be something else?
Hello, I have had and bred hamsters all my life, and I have never seen this! I bred my adorable sweet and gentle black and white banded male, Julien, (Devastated when he died shortly after the pups were born.) with my equally sweet peach and white banded female, Mabel. Eight were born, and three are peach and white banded like mom, but the 5 others are brown and white banded. I'm ecstatic that they are brown, because I love the color, but I'm also a little disappointed that they don't look like their daddy, because I miss him so. Will they turn to black as they grow?
I am giving some of the babies to new homes, and if you are close to Snohomish Wa 98296, are welcome to take one or two. (Must be same sex if two) They are adorable and gentle. No biters, except mom, lol she's a little sensitive right now obviously. :)

I just found this site and it's great!! We've been small animal lovers for four years, having a beautiful golden teddybear named Harry (after Harry Potter and because he was so hairy!), a darker brown syrian named Shannon (because she looked like my then 12 yr old daughter's best friend), and an albino rat named Pinky (my baby girl). They lived with us for three years each before they passed over the Rainbow Bridge, Pinky almost made it four! Now we have an adorble and sweet syrian named Godzilla(after a book my youngest daughter read about a hamster, "Godzilla ate my homework" highly reccommend it) and we had what we now call Mommy, otherwise known as White Paper, my 5 yr old's baby. She's a Russian dwarf albino. She had 7 babies, we didn't know she was pregnant when we got her...and we certainly had to keep the 6 that survived. So now Tookie, my now 6 yr old son, has White Paper, Naruto and Jimmie Johnson, My 8 yr old son has Jeff Gordon and Sasuke, my 10 yr old daughter has Meanie and cotton ball... the two girl babies. Just today we discovered Naruto is a girl! So now we have five new little pink jelly beans waiting to be named! We also have two anoles, american chamelions, Yukio and Minabi, those are my 16 yr old daughters's, and my husband and I have 3 cockatiels between us, Gen. Nathan Bedford Forrest, his, a natural color or grey, and two beautiful pearl, or yellow girls named Tweety and Sour Puss(because of their lemon cream pie colors and dispositions)mine.
Thanks for a great site to remind me what to do as it's been a year since we had babies! Wish us luck coming up with names for our 5 new albino Russian Dwarfs! (I'm sure one will be Dale Earnhardt Jr!) :-D
My hamster is a winter white hamster and she is loosing hair but soft skin. We don't know what to do? I'm concerned.
