Robo Dwarf Hamsters (Robo is short for Roborovskii) are the smallest species of pet hamster measuring in at an average of 2 inches long. They are sandy brown with a white belly and white marks above their eyes that look like eyebrows.

They are also the fastest of the bunch and are extremely active-something to consider if you're looking for a pet for your children. Kids love to handle their pets and Robo Hamsters can be tricky to keep hold of! It's possible for them to jump as high as a foot.

Robo Dwarf Hamsters are best housed in a large habitat that features enough activity centers and accessories to keep them busy. They are always up to something and are ideal if you are looking for a pet that's fun to watch, but requires less personal handling. You can even house more than one Robo Dwarf Hamster together provided that your habitat is big enough.

Things to remember

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

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

Dwarf hamsters have tons of energy and need to run on a wheel in their habitat, or in an exercise ball daily.

Choose a fortified diet appropriate for hamsters.

Your dwarf hamster needs a well-ventilated home, large enough for a food dish and water bottle, a hiding area (if one isn't built in) and an exercise wheel. There should be plenty of room for all cage accessories, and for her to move around freely.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from please read!!!!!!!!!!!!!! If you are planning to get an hamster I recommend Robo dwarfs! there are somethings you should know. First you must be ready if you get two, by that I mean having an extra cage incase of fighting. That is because mine stared to do that. they are two different sizes, Whiskers-big Cocoa-small, but since they were separed Cocoa looks lonely. So if they do that you should try to put them back together. Another reason is they ARE THE SMALLEST HAMSTERS AND THE FASTEST. Third of all is that they are hard to tame and are great escape artists. But I do highly recommend them!!! :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sweet Hamster! I had a robo when I was younger...maybe about 11 or 12. They were the sweetest and docile hamster I have had. My boyfriend surprised me with another robo hamster for my birthday! She is a 12 week old female named Ginger and she LOVES to burrow, loves human contact, and loves to be held. They are active at night but are usually pretty quiet. She is super fast and can sneak away from you so make sure you keep an eye on your robo baby!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this hamster it is very small and easy to handle. I would recommend you buy a wheel bigger then the hamster it self and a huge tank because this hamster is very fast and loves to burrow and run around!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Pet and Lives Longer I received my hamster about three years ago from a Petsmart. The guy told us to not pick him up right away and just let him get used to his new surroundings. I would suggest putting some dirty clothes on the cage to get the hamster used to your scent. They are very energetic and make sure to get a non squeaking wheel! They love to run a bunch in the night! My hamster recently passed away and he was a great little guy. I would just suggest spending as much time as you can with them after they get used to you because they can go quick. And they love to be outside their cages. They are escape artists too so be careful! Your finger should not be able to fit through the bar all the way. If it can, they can escape. If their head fits, they fit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Pet for ages 10+! My 10 yr. old daughter has had other hamsters in the past and they have all have been great! The Robo is a timid but friendly hamster that will need a lot of taming and a lot of handling to break out of his shell :) But Robos are not good pets for anyone under the age of ten.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome 1) Clean your hamster cage every week. This means, change the bedding. Wipe out any wet spots and add more bedding. 2) Once a month, clean your hamster cage with mild detergent. Dry it completely so it stays sanitary. 3) Change your hamster's water everyday. 4) Change your hamster's food everyday. 5) Every other day, clean anything that's soiled. 6) Every day, if there is any, remove wet bedding. 7) Give your hamster pieces of unscented toilet paper to make a nest. 8) Keep the hamster cage away from doors, direct sunlight, and pets or small children. 9) Make sure your hamster is in the temperature range of 60 - 90 degrees, otherwise it could be fatal. 10) Spend plenty of time with your hamster everyday and handle it often. This will keep your hamster tame and healthy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Healthy and happy I adopted my little fur ball a few weeks ago and could not be happier. She is so healthy and active! The employee who caught her was very patient and gentle-- he didn't run her around or stress her out. She settled into her new cage instantly (Kaytee Super Pet CritterTrail One Level with Carefresh bedding). I am very happy with Petsmart!

I am getting 3 of the robo dwarf hamsters in about 10 days. I don’t want anyone to buy them while I wait. There are only three in the cage at PetSmart, and I will buy all three. Is there any way I can reserve them for 10 days?
