Small, rodent-like creatures known as hamsters are beloved household pets. They are renowned for their active and inquisitive behaviors in addition to their adorable and fluffy appearances. Hamsters come in a variety of kinds, but the Syrian hamster, commonly referred to as the golden or teddy bear hamster, is the most popular pet variety. Syrian hamsters can weigh up to 12 ounces and are normally between 4 and 7 inches long. They have short, dense fur that can be brown, black, gray, or white, among other colors.
Commercial hamster chow, as well as fruits, vegetables, and small quantities of seeds, are among the many foods that can be offered to hamsters. They also enjoy eating tiny pieces of cooked chicken and cheese, although these should only be given in moderation.
