I got my hamster!!!! Well about 3 months ago. She is a Syrian hamster. I don't know why pet stores give weird names for smaller animals. For example they would call black hamsters "black bear hamster." Its like calling a black dog a "black bear dog." I don't understand. These pictures were from the first day I dot her so she's a bit bigger now.
Her name is Mochi. She is extremely fast and loves to run on her wheel. She also loves to come out of her cage.
Some advice I would give if you were to get a pet, is TO DO A TON OF REASERCH. There a ton of forums out there if all different types of pets. So many people don't and end up shorting their pet's life. You aren't a bad pet owner if you make mistakes but you're a good one if you do something about it. So many people think that hamsters need small cages like the ones you see in the pet stores, I like to call them torture chambers. Or people using "fluff" for hamster bedding. If you search up "dangers of fluffy hamster bedding" you will probably find a whole list. I find it so strange that Petsmart and Petco say "don't use pine wood shavings" yet they still sell it. Never ask pet store employees for advice because their knowledge is very outdated. If you have access to a phone or electronic, take advantage of that and make a pet's life better. If any of you want a hamster ask me if you have any questions.
