It might be in heat ( if it's a girl ).
No, your hamster is dead.
if it is cold and stiff it is dead it doesnt take long you'll smell it soon.
they don't move they go cold they are stiff everyone knows that
No hamsters don't play dead unless they are trained which is very unlikely
it basically means that they are as boring as a dead person, as 'stiff' is slang for a dead body.
Yes, but you can bend their bodies still by twisting it yourself.
well since hamsters dont hibernate.... srry. Hamsters do hibernate. While hibernating they will be in deep sleep and they will not be stiff. Hamsters start hibernating if the temperature is below 60ºF . To awake a hamster, add more bedding so they can go under and keep warm, or you can out them in both of your hands to keep warm, or you can raise the temperature 5 degrees every 6 or 8 hours until the temperature returns to about 68-75ºF.
its not breathing
If it is like that, cold and not breathing, yes, it is dead.
The dead body was already stiff when I found it there.
Rigor mortis is dead stiff body, not really called posturing.
No they only get stiff if they pass away
You could be dead..........or maybe just excited
Yes hamsters do
they are nearly dead
Touch the hampster and if its cold..... and not moving... its dead. or...poke it with a stick?
hamsters go to sleep during the day because they are NOCTURNAL.
Sadly, no. Once the dead puppy has become stiff, rigor mortis has set in and there is nothing that can be done to revive it.
no it isn't. it is adetergent, and should never be used in a hamsters cage. if the wheel is squeaky, or the door is stiff, then use cooking oil. it doesn't harm the hamster if it likes it off
if a mouse is dead it would be hard cold stiff and it doesn't movee
Excellent diagnosis ... being stiff and cold is a pretty sure indication of death. (The stiffness will go away, but she'll stay at room temperature.)
