Syrian Hamster Info Sheet

Home > Hamsters > Info Sheets

Syrian Hamsters are known for being one of the few hamster species that cannot tolerate being in the same cage as others. Syrian Hamsters seem to be the most popular pet hamster and is distinguishable from other hamsters due to its very short tail.

Syrian Hamsters are nocturnal meaning they sleep during the day. Usually the wake up in the late evening and become active throughout the night. Like most hamsters they go to their food dish and place a large amount of food in the pouches in their mouth and walk away to an area in which they feel safe to eat. The Syrian Hamster can actually carry up to half of its body weight in these pouches!
