An animal that has a prehensile tail is able to use its tail to wrap it around something and hold on to it. These hamsters were discovered in China and its northern neighbor, Mongolia. Most of these little hamsters weight around about 40 grams as adults. Hamsters only live a couple of years.

These hamsters have a very long tail. Some people may mistake these animals as rats because of their mousy face and long tail that resemble a rat. Most of these hamsters are brown and have some darker and lighter colors on their backs. These creatures can grab on to something small like a finger. They also can be mean, but they get nicer and more trusting as the hamsters move from childhood into adulthood.
