If you have owned the Hamster from its baby stage and have gently held it at least once a day and gotten it used to your touch (also if you have always made sure your hands were cleaned before you pet or handle them) then you should be in no danger of being bitten.

Actually, if you are asking which one bites more or bites at all, they both may bite but it depends on the hamster. If they are agitated or tired, yes they may bite.
