It means it feels uncomfortable. With hamsters, biting is used as self defence. I had a hamster, and when I first got him he bit me a lot. The proper way to deal with this is the following:

1) Hold him every day to make him feel secure (Make sure you are carrying all of his legs).

2) When he bites you stay calm and don't freak out, just try again (Screaming will scare the hamster even more).


4) Cages are a hamster's home, so he may bite you. It's like a giant broke into your home and tried to lift you out of it. So try step 2 and eventually that hamster will get used to you.

Are Russian dwarf hamsters meaner than others?

Russian Dwarf Hamster is not mean at all. It can bite though at first. When you first get it do not pick it up because it is not use to the environment yet wait til it gets to its cage then start patting it and holding it. After that, it will be really tame and hardly bite. The worst it does is nibble. The ones that are nice are the Fancy Dwarf Hamster and the Russian Dwarf Hamster.
