How many species of hamsters are there out of the world?
There are about 25 species of hamsters that go under: Syrian or dwarf or hybrid.
When you see the different types of hamsters at the store, they are different species. Robo hamsters are a different species from teddy bear hamsters, and so on.
No, the species refers to the entire group of that animal such as hamsters. There are many different TYPES of hamsters, but all of those TYPES are part of the SPECIES. Hope I Helped ~Firestar
There are two species, the common and the golden.
There is around 9,000 hamsters in the world.
There is at least 10,000 hamsters in the world.
Hamsters are small rodents, which are crepuscular (which means that they stay inactive during most of the daytime), mostly omnivorous and can be found in many parts of the world and are considered good pets by many people. All species of Hamsters belong to the 'Critenae' subfamily, which includes about 25 species being the golden or Syrian hamster (Mesocricetus uratus) the most common species to be kept as pets.
Syrian hamsters do not get along with eachother. They are solitary creatures. Dwarf hamsters get along with other dwarf hamsters (of the same species).
Hamsters can have litters 6 weeks to 3 months apart, so it depends on the species. Females become serile at 1 year old.
No. Species don't inter breed
No. Hamsters are placental mammals, as are most mammals that are alive today. There are only five living monotreme species: the platypus and four species of echidna.
There's lots of dwarf hamsters in the world!
about 2% of people have hamsters as pets
No, hamsters do not tolerate other species. They don't even get along with other hamsters, most of the time.
Most species of hamsters will not interbreed and are not able to produce young. The only exception amongst the species kept as pets is the the Dwarf Winter White Russian and Dwarf Campbells Russian Hamsters which can be interbred and produce young. Although the two species have many similarities they do not occupy the same ranges in the wild and so interbreeding of the two species does not occur in the wild. Therefore interbreeding the… Read More
No. They are different species and can cause harm to themselves or the baby.
There are around 25 hamster species in all including wild hamsters like the European Hamster. Domesticated there are Syrians and dwarves. There are 4 types of dwarves kept as pets, Winter Whites, Campbells, Robovorski, and Chinese hamsters.
many species are wild, however some species are kept as pets and have similar setups to hamsters and rats etc. so to answer your question YES.
No, hamsters are not African animals. The various species are primarily from Asia and parts of eastern Europe.
The hamsters we keep as pets are Syrian hamsters, and come from the Mount Aleppo region of Syria. A small colony was captured in the 1940s, and from them almost all pet Syrian hamsters come. They were originally imported into the US to Louisiana as research animals at a leprosy center. Various species of hamsters occur in many parts of the Old World. For example, in Europe there is the black bellied hamster. And we… Read More
There are MANY different ypes of hamsters. The ones you might find in your pet store are black bear hamsters, fancy hamsters, teddy bear hamsters, honey bear hamsters, dwarf hamsters, panda bear hamsters, dalmation hamsters, robo hamsters, and many more!
It would not be wise because even two hamsters of the same species will fight. I would reccommend keeping each hamster in its own cage.
Hamsters can be small to a size of a small guinea pig, depending on species and diet. They are definitely little pocket pals!
There are no wild hamsters living in America. There are no current statistics of how many tamed hamsters there are.
Syrian Hamsters - Winter White Hamsters - Chinese Hamsters - Campbells Dwarf Hamsters - Roborovski Hamsters So, 5.
A hamster can be Russian and not a dwarf, for example the European Hamster can be found in Russia, but it is certainly not a dwarf species. However the 'Russian Dwarf' hamster is a specific species that is considered a dwarf variety.
No, a hamster is not an endangered species. Hamsters breed often and are in no danger of being endangered for a long time.
The species of short hair hamsters are the siberian, the djungarian, the robvorosky's, the chinese, the Russian, and the syrian.
No, hamsters and rats are different species so can't reproduce. I would have thought rats and hamsters would probably fight, as Syrian hamsters are extremely territorial and rats are so much larger than hamsters anyway.
Syrian hamsters are the largest by far. Chinese hamsters have a proportionally longer tail than any other hamster species. Campbell's Russian Dwarf hamsters, and Winter White hamsters are easily distinguished from the other breeds, but harder to distinguish between the two. Winter Whites turn white in winter as they shed their darker fur, and the paler fur grows thicker. However the two species can interbreed, and your dwarf hamster may be a hybrid. Roborovski's Dwarf… Read More
it doesn't matter. usually dwarf hamsters aren't good for children and syrian are more easy to tame. both species can snap however if not tamed.
Hamsters have many breeds. There is now info on hamsters.
All species don't eat there own unless they were the only existing animal in the world
Yes, it's just another name of calling them:). As well as Golden Hamsters, Syrian hamsters are also sometimes referred to as teddy bear hamsters (long haired syrian hamsters), alien hamsters (hairless syrian hamsters), black bear or european black bear (black syrian hamsters). They are all variations in colour/coat of the same species of hamster. I believe all hamsters are from Syrian so they all have a common ancestry
Do hamsters come in sizes Are there some breeds larger or smaller than others What about wild hamsters?
Of course there is all kinds of hamsters, like dwarf hamsters there the size of a puff ball , huge and even extreemly fuzzy hamsters, there are at least more than a hundred kinds of species of hamsters. Though wild hamsters are hard to catch, viciouse, and bite, plus may have rabies.
No, most definitely not! Hamsters (at least Syrians) don't even get along with other hamsters, much less another species. Fights will break out. In general, unless you have a very large enclosure (like in a zoo), you should never mix species, except for fish and some kinds of amphibians and reptiles.
It depends on the species of hamster! Syrian hamsters (Mesocrictus auratus) have 21 pairs and two sex chromosomes (44 in total). Chinese hamsters (Cricetus griseus) have 10 pairs of chromosomes and two sex chromosomes (22 in total).
Cats and Hamsters are a completely different species of animal
The correct name for a pet hamster (not including the dwarf varieties) is a Syrian, or Golden Hamster. There are many unofficial names for the species, some refer to colouration, 'black bear hamster' for example. Some refer to fur style, like 'teddy bear hamster', or a mixture, 'fancy hamster'. However none of these are actual species in of themselves, they are all Syrian Hamsters.
There are many species of flies in this world. There is no way of knowing how many different species of flies there are because of cross breeding.
Hamsters are mammals that belong to the rodent family having large incisor teeth that are continually growing necessitating gnawing to prevent the teeth from overgrowing. The word 'rodent' is derived from the latin word 'rodere' which means 'to gnaw'. Hamsters form the Family Cricetidae which is broken down into different Genera (including Cricetulus, Phodopus and Calomyscus). Within each Genera are various species of hamster. There are many different species of hamsters throughout the world and… Read More

Because this question wasn't answered I tried. It doesn't have lots of information or detail because it's short... There are so many different types of hamsters but here are the two main types... The large type of hamster is known as the Syrian/Golden hamster The small types are known as dwarf hamsters I suggest you research on the web or buy a book on hamsters for more information.
by normal, if you mean sirian hamsters then the main difference is that Chinese hamsters belong to the dwarf hamster species, which are considerably smaller and arent as friendly (believe me, i know, i own two!).
The lifespan of a hamster is 4-5 years. There are 27 different species of hamsters.
No, because hamsters are very digressive to other species.
No, they're different species. It won't work.
