What color is Syrian?
Syrian hamsters aka golden hamsters, come in a wide variety of colors and patterns and fur lengths. All of the larger hamsters (about the size of a 12 yr old's hand) are Syrian hamsters. "Teddy Bear" and "Black Bear" hamsters are examples of breeds of Syrian hamsters. I have breed brown, black, white, cream, and even red syrian's. Though the 'traditional' syrian (50's era) was brown with dark flashes on the cheek pouches, and a gray belly. A little later the white belly became popular.
