I am getting a Hamster and I am wondering about the different kinds of hamsters. My friend, who recently owned a Golden hamster now has a Blackbear hamster and says that her Golden hamster bit her all the time but she says that she has never yet owned a Blackbear that has bit her. I know that they are all the same breed no need to tell me that. But I was thinking about getting a Pandabear hamster but I don't want a hamster that bites me all the time. I also read somewhere that even though they are Syrian hamsters Blackbear hamsters are more calm than Golden,etc.
If anyone has owned a Pandabear hamster can you please tell me what the behaviour is like? They are cute but there is more about owning a hamster than they're cuteness the behaviour is also important.
I have found that all the panda bear hamsters that I have owned/met have been nice. But it really depends on the hamster. Hamsters that have been handled before are usually more friendly. I would just play with the hamster before you buy it. To find out whether or not its going to be friendly.
Have you ever thought of getting dwarf hamsters? I used to breed them. Now I don't but I currently own two of them. They are really nice and friendly. I love them and they are SO cute and small. If you have the option I would definitly suggest getting dwarfs. Here, I will try to post some pics of them soon :D.
I HAVE A SYRIAN DWARF HAMSTER!! THEY BITE HARD AND YOU START TO BLEED A LITTLE. If you really want one DO NOT EVER DROP THE HAMSTER!! IF YOU DO BUT YOU DONT MEAN TO PICK THE HAMSTER UP WITH WINTER GLOVES THAT ARE REALLY REALLY THICK!!
