- Hamsters can store almost half their body weight in their cheeks! That is a LOT of dinner to be stuck in your teeth.
- The oldest dwarf hamster lived to over 4 years old. (Thats over 100 human years old!!) I wish mine were little age record breakers 😛
- There are 25 different species of hamster! And yes I really want one of each.. muahah! 25 little Caspers pleaseee:)
- Hamsters are short-sighted AND colour blind! Unfortunately a hmaster-specsavers isnt on the horizon in any country yet..
The word hamster is an old German word hamstern which means ‘to hoard’. Them chubby cheeks make a lot of sense now 😀
Happy Wednesday folks 🙂 ❤
