After hearing all this rubbish by UNEDUCATED zoologists it's time for me to answer the question. So 'can a guinea pig and hamster share the same cage', my answer is yes my friend. Under Circumstances.

I did an observation for a month housing a male guinea pig and female hamster, everything worked out well, they slept together , played together etc. But you need to be aware :

Warnings :

- Only house the opposite sexes, e.g. female hamster and male guinea pig or female guinea pig and male hamster.

- Make sure it's a large enough cage for space.

- Be careful with food, mix there foods together in a feeding bowl.

Most definitely not they cannot share a space, guinea pigs can kill hamsters and will because hamsters are so small they will get hurt my guinea pigs. Plus they cant eat the same food so they cannot share feeding bowls.

I would have to agree with the above answer, a Hamster is a different species from a Guinea pig, and it is never advisable to cage them together, the size difference between the species would also make them inappropriate cage mates and they have a different diet, housing opposite sexes makes no difference to anything and a male guinea pig would most likely squash a Hamster to death trying to mate it.

both guinea pigs and hamsters can be very active although hamsters only at night, guinea pigs tend to be more playful and enjoy the company of people more.

Guinea pigs and hamsters are booth very smart so it's hard to tell

In short, no they can't. Guinea pigs and chinchillas have very different needs and require different kinds of housing, It would not be a good idea to house them together.

There seems to be a weird obsession with guinea pigs, hamsters and hedgehogs on this site. Personally hamsters are my favorite. They are more docile.

Guinea pigs and hamsters are just about the same animal, so they die at about the same time.

No. Guinea pigs are part of the cavy family. Hamsters are part of the rodent family.

Wild guinea pigs live in the wooded areas of South America. Domesticated guinea pigs usually live in cages or hutches.

Yes , Guinea Pigs will fight with hamsters , you cannot keep them together in the same cage anyway , it is dangerous for the hamster to live in a Guinea pigs cage because the bars are bigger and it could get its head stuck. GUENIA PIGS WILL FIGHT WITH HAMSTERS!
