Hi i am with NRRF,

which stands for national rodent rescue foundation

no hamsters and guinea pigs can not live in the same cage together because

hamsters are very territorial and can be very aggressive and violent toward the guinea pig.

Not only that but their sleeping patterns are different. Hamsters are awake during the night and guinea pigs during the day.

Also their diet is very different as well. Hamsters mainly subsist on seeds and nuts and guinea pigs mostly on vegetables and timothy hay as well as pellets

also vitamin c here are some veggies that have vitamin c

Turnip Greens 260 mg

Why are guniea pigs better than hamsters?

I wouldn't say that either is better then the other but guinea pigs are more calm. also hamsters are most likely to bite some people say but they only bite if they are scared so if you don't scare them they won't bite simple. but also hamsters are actually lower in price and don't need that much room which is a plus on their side but they are also nocturnal and guinea pigs are awake during the the day and sleep at night. Another thing is that hamsters are more active then guinea pigs so they tend to run around a lot more but this is not true for all hamsters . guinea pigs on the other hand are mostly not that active but again this is not true for all guinea pigs . but something that is for fact guinea pigs must have another to lie with they can not live alone but with hamsters on the other hand they can live alone but then again that is not really good because if you try to put to hamsters in the same cage your looking for a fight. also if guinea pigs escape they are easier to catch.
