Small Pets for Sale: Hamsters, Gerbils, Mice & More | PetSmart

Hi everyone! So I went to pets at home and bought some fun things for when I get a hamster :-)

Please note that if you are planning on getting a hamster you would need more supplies than what I am showing in this video.

Thank you so much for all of the lovely comments and messages regarding Charlie Brown. As I upload everything on my brothers ipod at the mo it is hard for me to comment back and it seems to be impossible to reply to comments as I can only leave a comment on the video and not just reply to one comment.

Sorry that was really long and complicated explanation!

Hope everyone is good and I will upload a video as soon as I get a new hamster :-)

Please comment on what type of hamster you think I should get!

I’ll take a moment to tell you what it was like getting Pip, my first hamster. It was a Sunday afternoon, the day before my birthday. I went to my local petshop, which is very good. I had done some research before deciding to get a hamster and I had come to the conclusion that a Roborovski hamster was the best for me. ( Go to my “hamster breeds” page for more info on them) The woman in the shop gave me the youngest robo they had and I held him in my hands for a while. I think he had gone into shock when he was put in my hand, because after a few minutes of staying still, he had recovered and tried to make several leaps to freedom! Luckily, every time he did so, he was caught by the shop assistant! I knew that he was healthy and lively, so I took him home.

Years later, animals of this original breeding colony were exported to the USA, where Syrian hamsters became one of the most popular pets and laboratory animals.[] Comparative studies of domestic and wild Syrian hamsters have shown reduced genetic variability in the domestic strain. However, the differences in behavioral, chronobiological, morphometrical, hematological, and biochemical parameters are relatively small and fall into the expected range of interstrain variations in other laboratory animals.
