Syrian hamsters are also known as golden hamsters. Hamsters are a popular pet for children. Syrian hamsters have the large cheeks that are used for storing food. They expand to twice their size. Most hamsters only live a couple of years. They live for fewer years in the wild. Sometimes, these hamsters really don’t like to be around each other.
They may attack even kill other hamsters for no reason. Even their family members are not safe from each other. Attacking occurs after mating, with their young and any other hamster that they see. Therefore, it is necessary to separate hamsters from each other for the safety of the hamsters. Some female hamsters can produce a litter of eight pups.
