The Short-Haired Hamsters' 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.
