Did you know?
There are a total of 24 species of hamsters? They all belong to the family Cricetidae.

Hamsters are one of the most popular pets in the Netherlands. There are different types of hamsters. We first make a distinction between the normal Golden Hamster (Syrian Hamster) and the Dwarf Hamsters. The most commonly kept dwarf hamsters are:

Roborovski Dwarf Hamster

Hamster webshop for Golden Hamster, Syrian Hamster, but also dwarf hamsters | All hamster supplies The Roborovski Dwarf Hamster is the smallest hamster species and can be kept together. However, a comment must be made here, because keeping things together is always a risk. Although the Roborovski Dwarf Hamster lives together in groups in the wild, this can still go wrong in our home. Our advice is therefore always to inform yourself well and never to simply place strange animals together. Get good advice from a shelter or breeder of the animals before keeping them together.

Russian Dwarf Hamster

The Russian Dwarf Hamster is the most popular hamster species among dwarf hamsters. This dwarf hamster is best kept alone. The animals can only be kept in pairs (male and female), but this of course results in litters, so this is not a good idea if you do not want to breed. The Russian Dwarf Hamster is also a very curious animal that regularly shows up during the day. They are not really nocturnal animals, because they are also regularly awake during the day.

Did you know?
Russian Dwarf hamsters are the only hamster species that can put on winter coats? The hamsters can turn completely white in winter when conditions are right. In the wild this is an important survival mechanism; this way they are not seen by predators in the snow.

Chinese Dwarf Hamster

The Chinese Dwarf Hamster is a slightly less well-known hamster species. These animals have a slightly longer tail and can also climb slightly better than the other dwarf hamster species. They are solitary animals that really need to be kept alone. In the wild, animals only come together to mate and otherwise live alone. Chinese Dwarf Hamsters are quite active and slightly shyer than Russian Dwarf Hamsters.

Campbelli Dwarf Hamster

The Campbelli Dwarf Hamster looks very similar to the Russian Dwarf Hamster. The animals can even be crossed with each other, but this should not be done because hybrid animals will then be created. Unlike the Russian Dwarf Hamster, the Campbelli is naturally a hamster that can live together with others of its own kind, but just like the Roborovski Dwarf Hamster, it is wise to seek good advice about this from the shelter or breeder of the animals.

Syrian Hamster

The Syrian Hamster, also known as the Golden Hamster, is the largest hamster species kept as a pet. The largest species of hamster is the corn wolf, but that is a truly wild hamster that cannot be kept as a pet. Syrian Hamsters also require larger housing due to their larger size. Houses and toys must also be large enough for these animals. Not all manufacturers indicate this clearly enough. That is why all our products clearly indicate whether something is for a dwarf hamster or a golden hamster.

Hamsters are real nest builders

Hamsters are real nest builders, they always need nesting material so that they can line their hole with it. Making a nest is therefore part of a hamster's natural behavior. Therefore, always give the hamster 15-25 grams of nesting material.

Are Hamsters Nocturnal?

Hamsters are generally evening, nocturnal and crepuscular animals. The Syrian Hamster (Golden Hamster) is a truly nocturnal animal, these hamsters sleep during the day and are mainly active at night. However, there is a small difference between males and females. The male Golden Hamsters are larger sleepyheads than the female Golden Hamsters. Females are more active than males and are therefore seen more often during the day than males.

Hamsters & Dwarf Hamsters really like this!

Hamsters love their exercise wheel. That is a must for the hamster enclosure. In addition, hamsters like to dig and some species also like to climb. Because hamsters dig tunnels in the wild, they also enjoy walking through tunnels in our home. Hamsters are active animals, so give them plenty of challenge in the form of hamster toys.

Hamsters & Dwarf hamsters have continuous growing teeth

Just like all rodents, hamsters' teeth are constantly growing. It is therefore very important that the hamster receives good hamster food and also has gnawing material to wear down his or her teeth. We set high standards for both and that is why we do not sell lime gnawing stones or mineral stones. All products in the "gnawing material" category are 100% suitable for the hamster!

Hamsters & Dwarf hamsters are prey animals and must be able to hide

Hamsters and dwarf hamsters are prey animals, so shelter is very important for them. The animals all need (preferably several) houses or hiding places to feel safe. The animals do not like an open enclosure. In the wild they are often caught by birds of prey, which is also the reason why they do not like to be picked up from above. An enclosure with several houses and sufficient hiding places gives the hamsters a safe feeling. This is important, because if the hamsters feel safe, they will become tame faster and easier and they will trust their enclosure more quickly.
