Introduction to Syrian Hamsters

Since I now have a syrian hamster, I am going to do some posts about how to take care of syrian hamsters. 

So here is a little bit about syrian hamsters:

Syrian hamsters, also known teddy bear hamsters, are the largest breed of hamster usually being 5 to 7 inches long.

They can be a variety of colors and coat types. Some of the colors include black and white (panda bear), black (black bear), white, golden (golden bear), and brown among others.

Syrian hamsters can be short haired or long haired. They can also have satin coats which are more shiny than most hamster's fur.

Syrian hamsters are generally friendly and easy to handle, but they may be grumpy when first woken up. 

Syrian hamsters have a lifespan of 2 to 3 years.
