Hamsters are great pets. Hamsters are nocturnal animals and therefore will only wake at night time. The average life span for a hamster is 2-3 years. Popular species of hamsters include Syrian hamsters, dwarf hamsters and Roborovski hamsters. Dwarf or Roborovski Hamsters can be kept in same sex pairs, however Syrian Hamsters and Chinese Dwarf Hamsters should be kept singly as they will fight, often to death.
