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.
