Meet my new hammy!

Post by AnonymousMouseOwner on Fri Sep 15, 2017 11:01 pm

Meet my new hammy! He doesn't have a name yet.... So far he's very alert and cautious of his new home. He's super adorable and not much bigger than a mouse right now... He's got a lot of growing to do! He's from an accidental litter, and I was pleasantly surprised to find out that his old owners were taking very good care of him! So he is healthy and curious, exploring his new habitat. Love

I forgot to mention...my first couple hams were each 200g, so i just sort of though that's how big hamsters were.  But then i got Dustin and Chip, who were both so tiny when i got them. Dustin grew a tiny bit and is 120g but little Chip refuses to grow... He has stayed at 104g.  He's a tiny little fun-sized ham.  So if your guy is weaned and still really tiny, he might stay small.  It's weird to me that Chippie isn't much bigger than a couple of my mice!

From what I understand, he was ready and weaned on the 1st, so more than 2 weeks ago. So he's about 6 weeks old. I'll have to weigh him when he's all settled in. I just need to find batteries for my gram scale Pardon . He's super tiny though.

I might be mistaken, but I've heard syrians can grow until they are 6 months old. How old is Chip? Chip was one of the Florida hams too, right? Did he have to leave his mother early? That might be another reason he's not as big. Just a thought. '
'
I hope my guy grows bigger! Not that he isn't super cute so tiny, but everything I own for hamsters is the size that Blue was, and Blue was normal sized!

Yeah, Chip was separated early. Many of the Florida hams are small. But my other ham who wasn't from that bunch is about 6 months old and only 120g... very tiny for a regular Syrian that was weaned at 4 weeks. They are so tiny! They can still use all the bigger Syrian stuff but they look silly on the big wheel, lol.

Maybe he'll grow. But I just wanted to mention that it's possible that he wont and that's nothing to worry about.

Some more pics of the little guy.... He's kinda shy and doesn't want to be out of his hiding spot when I'm in the room, so I didn't get very many pictures of him before he went and hid lol.

Hehe, you know when I get a new pet I can never post enough pictures... Prepare for more! His name is officially "Dakota", by the way! I chose that name because it means "friendly companion".  Smile

He's also pretty sure that it's possible to take the water bottle with him...

He's very hamsome.  He looks like a nice ham, you're going to have so much fun getting to know each other!
