Up and Walking

Gray

Syrian hamsters take a fairly long time to mature, and, by fairly long, I mean by Siberian dwarf hamster standards, as a female Syrian hamster can develop from a single fertilized cell to being pregnant in less than two months. Siberian hamsters apparently start walking sooner. The week-old babies are already exploring their cage and trying to fill their cheek pouches with food. The mother hasn’t eaten any of them yet which is another big difference from the Syrian hamsters that I’ve known.
