The Chinese Dwarf Hamster is about 4-5 inches long with silky gray-brown fur and a black stripe down its back. Some people mistake these hamsters for mice because they have a longer tail than other hamsters. Their long tail makes them great jumpers and climbers in comparison to other hamsters.

These hamsters are much like other hamster species and have similar care. Their friendly nature and ability to become a true member of the family have made them one of the most popular small pets. They can learn to enjoy human interaction, but they're not crazy about other hamsters, so only one hamster per habitat. They like to run and play at night and sleep during the day, so they may be active and noisy after dark.

Things to remember

Easily startled
Be careful, if she gets scared, she may bite. Take extra care when awakening her.

Lifting & handling
Handle your hamster gently -- scoop her up in both hands and hold her with cupped hands so she'll feel safe and secure.

Special needs
Your hamster's front teeth never stop growing -- so she needs lots of healthy things to chew on like treats and chew sticks.

Exercise
Hamsters have tons of energy and need to run on a wheel in their habitat, or in an exercise ball every day.

Nutrition
Choose a fortified diet appropriate for hamsters.

Male Chinese Dwarf Hamster is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cute Enzo, my Chinese dwarf hamster is cute but also very shy. His mini size makes him the perfect handheld pet but since he is afraid of everything he doesn't like to come out around people. I love him to death but just wish he was a little more social!
