What does it mean if your dwarf hamster has a red nose and keeps biting you all the time?

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).

3) DON'T STICK YOUR FINGER IN HIS CAGE!

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.

If it's a dwarf hamster, it's just boxing. The species tends to do that. It's just their way of playing. If it's not a dwarf hamster then that's strange behavior but i don't think it has rabies

Your hamster is probably a russian winter white dwarf, they change color when it's cold.

Sure! I have a hamster & it could also be mean by biting you. The same thing for guinea pigs, too.

It just means that ur dwarf hamsters or hamster runs up and down the side of its cage it means that he or she wants to get out of thr cage.

User Avatar

That depends on what you mean by White Dwarf Hamster. You may be referring to a Winter White Dwarf Hamster which tend to be a light gray, or a Albino Dwarf Hamster that is completely white and maybe red eyes. Albino Hamsters may be hard to find, but you can call nearby pet stores and ask if they have the hamster you are looking for. (Stores like Pj's Pets, PetSmart, Local Pet Breeds, etc)

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.

It means it is getting used to it new home.

Hamsters are rodents, and it is in their nature to wear down their constantly growing teeth by biting things. Almost anything solid is fair game to them, be it their toys, special gnawing chews, or the cage bars.

It means that they are trying to mate ( trying to have sex ) to make a baby

I assume you mean hamster*s*. Syrian (teddy bear etc) hamsters come from Syria. The majority of dwarf hamsters originate from Russia. And I assume Chinese Dwarf hamsters come from China? Wild guess :p

User Avatar

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!).
