Call local pet shops and see if they have a hamster of the same breed that has recently given birth. Rub the baby in same of the bedding from the new mothers sawdust so it smells the same as one of her own pups. If she is fooled into thinking it is one of her own she will care for it. But, this is risky. There is a slight chance she will not accept them and kill it instead.

What do you do with baby hamsters if the mother ate some already?

You take care of the other babies by putting them in separate cages. DON'T TOUCH THE BABIES UNTIL THEY HAVE HAIR. The mother probably ate some of the babies because: 1. She felt threatened. 2. She might have needed more protein. Other reasons the mother may eat the babies is if the litter is too large for the mother to care for all the young or if the babies have already died on their own. Are you sure the mother actually killed them?

Who takes care of baby endangered animals when their mother can't?

I would think that if the mother lived within a pack or group of the same species at the time of death, another mother from the pack or group would take care of the baby until the baby grew up or the baby would end up having to leave the pack and wander until it eventually died of starvation or if the mother lived alone, the baby would die of starvation. If it were lucky enough it would be found by a human but that would be highly unlikely unless that human was monitoring the family.

How many litters is it safe for a dwarf hamster to have?

It doesn't matter how many she has, their needs to be a big cage and if they get along then it should be fine. If the hamsters start hurting each other or get inbred separate them immediately. Dwarf hamsters are the most social. My baby hamsters just grew hair today. The dad died (my cat killed him) and its usually best that when the mother gives birth the father is separated, sometimes right after the mother gives birth she gets pregnant again! Good luck and be careful with breeding hamsters. Its not all fun and games.

This is what you do. There are two things you can do. One is put some milk into a medicene dropper and put it in their mouths.

Put on of the baby hamsters that was rubbed in the new mom's bedding and put it with the new mom. If the mom doesn't eat it do the same things with rest. Hope this helps!

How does the story of king Solomon show why he is a wise man?

he is a wise man because he talks about killing the baby and the real mother would rather have her baby somewhere else even if its not with her than to have her dead but since the other mother accidentally killed her baby she decided that since her baby was already dead it didn't matter if this one died too... so he used his common sense to realize that the one wanting the baby dead was not the real mother because she didn't care wether or not the baby was dead or alive
