they are small in size, they are not small in character and their
energetic and playful nature can make it difficult for them to be
tamed. However they are social creatures and theRobo
fond of company and therefore it is recommended that they be
purchased in pairs. Many worry that they may fight and injure
themselves, but this is not always the case as normally injuries or
fighting only occur when they are placed with groups. They will
actually eat, play and sleep together and they look extremely cute
when they cuddle up to each other. Obviously if you were to buy a
pair, then you would need to ensure you buy a pair of the same sex
other wise it will be highly likely you will have many dwarf hamsters
running around as they can breed very quickly.

centimeter long and weight about 25 grams which makes them a very
delicate pet. They will live for between 2 and 3 years as long as
they are nurtured and kept healthy.

sandy with a darker undercoat, although their underbelly is all
white. Captive breeding has changed some of the colors available and

particularly suited for younger children as they are extremely
delicate and children, although not intentionally can be a bit clumsy
and rough. Therefore it would be recommended to purchase these for
children over the age of 10. You still might want to supervise your
child when they are being handled.
you go to a pet shop to purchase one or two if you can then make sure
they are alert and ask yourself. Do they look healthy and full of
life? Because these animals are generally nocturnal they can often be
sleeping when you visit the store, so try to go later in the evening
if possible and ask the store owner to check the sex. Generally the
Robo dwarf hamster loves a mate and two females are generally better
than two males. Ask their age and if possible ask if you can take
some of their existing bedding for them to travel home with. This
will smell familiar to them and make their journey a lot let
you have them home, take them to their new cage immediately and allow
them time to get used to their new surroundings before being handled.
If they have fresh food and water and lots of bedding they should be
more than happy with their new home. The Robo dwarf hamster can and
does make a wonderful pet to own for you and your family.
