Why Hamster bite me but Hamster sleep on hand sometime?
Hamsters usually bite when they are nervous or scared. It's not usually anything personal, they are just jumpy.
How can you tell if your hamster is going to bite you cause sometimes my hamster nibbles on me but I'm not sure if it's going to bite should I pull out my hand I have a robo dwarf hamster?
You can tell if its slepping right well if its slepping itll bite you bother it in its sleep
depends if the hamster is tame and used to being around people and their scent.
you know when your hamster likes you when she/he does not bite or run away from you when you approach her/him with your hand and will take food out your hand and seems calm wen you hold her/him hope this helped :)
Just try and handle it regularily. It needs to get used to your smell. Get some food and place it in your hand. Let the hamster come and get it from you.
To get your hamster to stop biting you try wash your hand with soap and water to get the smell of food off your hands then rub your hands in its bedding that it has in his/her cage and slowly reach towards your hamster if it looks like it wants to bite you pull away SLOWLY!!!! not fast it will scare it if that doesn't work, talk to it softly and hand feed it treats… Read More
If you don't mind the possibility of the hamster waking you up by running on its wheel or doing other activities during the night you should be fine. On the other hand if you are a light sleeper and need sleep you might not want to do this. Yes though, it is probably fine to let your hamster sleep in the same room as you.
Why is it when you try to pick up or pet your hamster it will bite you and if you use a towel or something he just jumps out of your hands what do you do?
the hamster is scared when you corner it or put your hand s towards its face .the best thing to do is rub the sawdust from inside the cage in your hands then try to relax your hand with the Pam of the hand facing up. then the hamster will sniff the sawdust in your hand it should go on your hand but try not to lift it as it might get scared again ,try… Read More
I have a girl hamster and it is really active and loud at night. If you could sleep hearing their wheel or them biting on there cage at night a hamster is a okay animal for you. At night i take out the wheel but she will bite the Cage, on the other side a guinea pig you have to be ready to get grooming because they have long hair also some hamsters do to… Read More
i had two dwarf hamsters and i noticed they bite if if you stick your hand in there cage if you just meet your hamster leave it alone for a couple of minuets because it might be scared of you.
yes they bite all the time -------------- Improved by .PokemonFreak. Well They do bite but its not all the time. Their bites aren't that bad it feels like a poke really. When they bite you its probably because they think your hand is food or checking your personality or your hurting them.
Yes! I own one right now his name is Barry. He is the best hamster, he climbs right into my hand. Winter white hamster love sunflower seeds, and they only bite when necessary. My previous hamster never bit me, but if your hamster does bite you don't freak out and most importantly don't be scared. Give them treats only when they're good, and if they still bite where a glove and eventually they will get… Read More
Don't bite the hand that feeds you. Take what is coming to you.
Why when you try to pick up your hamster he bite he thinks it food you cant pick it up you try to put food on your hand so he can clime to your hand is their another way?
yes. you could wait until he is in his little house or "hiding place" and take the whole thing out of the cage. once he is in your hand he will not bite.
usually right after you get a hamster, it is scared. You can tell because it tries to avoid your hand, maybe runs into its house when you open the cage door/lid. It might pee/bite if it is really frightened.
It seems unlikely that a hamster could generate that much force with a bit, but if this happened, it would be important to get examined by a health care provider as soon as possible. The combination of animal bite and broken bone in the hand can be particularly dangerous.
Most likely he won't but he will be a little confused. You should get a treat and set it on the palm of your hand and see if he will walk onto your hand. Hope I helped!
How can you tell if your hamster does not like you when you put your hand in the cage and it stands up on its hind legs and opens its mouth extremely wide as if ready to bite and is that normal?
Your hamster is showing that he doesn't like you at the moment. Feed your hamster through the bars of the cage with his favorite treats. bring your hamster to the vet and ask what to do to make your hamster more friendly towards you.
Nothing really, just clean the cut or put band aid on, or whatever u do with small cuts......remember! This doesn't mean the hamster is savage or anything sometimes they just bite
You may have scared it and that was its reaction. If the hamster has never been handled before you need to be gentle and gain its trust before you try to lift it, see if it will take a treat or some food from your hand before you do anything else.
Why does my friendly when out of the cage dwarf hamster only bite our hands when we feed him something in his cage and just have our hand in there with him?
Maybe he mistaked it for food, cause it smelled like it.
pick an hamster that you like you cannot tell if it bites or not if it does is is easy to solve if you basicly just got the hamster leave it in its new cage for a day( its is quite hard to leave it alone but its for the goood) then what you do is but your hand luying flat with treats in it (the hamster will not pick the treats with its teeth… Read More
Hamsters sometimes 'nip', if your hand smells of their food, they may test it gently, however as soon as they realise it's not food, they will stop. This doesn't really hurt, there's no force behind the bite. A true hamster bite is deep and painful. Hamsters have two pairs of long incisors, easily capable of sinking into flesh.
there is not really a proper way to hold a hamster, if you feel comfortable and your hamster looks fine than that is brilliant! if you don't know how to hold a hamster than a easy way is to gently scoop it up so the hamster is on your hand. Make sure your hands are flat so just in case the hamster does try to bite they don't really have much to nibble on! Now… Read More
Hamsters defend them selves by trying to scare you like scratching but when you grab a hamster they nibble on your hand but just for a while to taste your hand then it stops and you have total control over it and hamsters will bite you when they really need to.
Well, many people think that Dwarf hamsters bite more than other hamsters. this may be true with some, but they are just like any other hamster. they only bite if they are scared, nervous, or even just because your hand may smell like food. if you do have a dwarf hamster that bites, you can get them to stop just like i did. it really isn't that hard. also some may bite because they might… Read More
Be gentle and don't make a loud banging noise and be quiet and put your hand in the cage whisper to her come here and make a hamster noise but if it bites make sure that you seem like it do not hurt so it seems like your boss the hamster likes it when he's boss when he bites keep your hand in the same spot it always was when he bite you when you… Read More
Slide your hand underneath the back end, sliding your hand towards the front & scoop it up carefully. Don't try it from the front. I have a few bite marks proving that is a bad idea. Don't squeeze to tightly.
Apart from the fact that you're not supposed to disturb your hamster when it's sleeping or eating, normally a hamster would bite if you did that. It might be that your hamster is simply not aggressive at all, or on the other hand it could be that it's too weak to defend itself because it's ill. It would be best to take the hamster to the vet's just in case to see there's nothing wrong… Read More
Try washing your hands thoroughly before putting them near the hamster and put a few seeds in your palm and just keep your hand still and palm up in it's cage and let the hamster do what it wants. Also, if it does bite you DON'T jerk away. It learns that "hey, I bite it leaves so I'll keep doing it!'. Lots of patience is involved in developing trust with your hamster and I speak… Read More
yes, because when you put your hand in there cage they will start to bite so you should work with them at least every day for 30 mins It will take a week or so for them to get use to you
Leave it alone for the first 2-3 days (don't attempt to pick it up as it will startle it and it will bite you because you are a stranger, and allow it to get used to its new surroundings) after that, start talking to your hamster by sitting by the cage and placing your hand around the cage so that he gets used to your scent and voice, then start feeding him treats from your… Read More
When first getting a hamster, you should give it a couple of days to adjust. You can start to get to know them by laying your hand in the cage with a treat on it. Your hamster will probably sniff your hand, and then grab the treat. If your hamster bites your hand, pull your hand out of the cage. Keep trying this for a couple of days and your hamster will begin to feel… Read More
you should never wake a hamster up in the night because if you wake it up and it sees a hand or tapping its going to get scared and try to protect itself then abit later it relises its you its always best to let it sleep
the best way to introduce your hamster to handling is to let them come to your hand. if you were a hamster you wouldn't want to be grabbed! show that you are not a threat by putting your hand in the cage near the hamster without touching it and slowly moving it away from the hamster. this way your hamster is more likely to come to your hand. avoid quick movements as this will scare… Read More
My dwarf hamster is so vicious she runs at my hand to bite it and she wont let go when she bites shes literally hanging from my hand with her teeth and she claws at me too can i stop her doing this?
its probably because you don't hold the hamster enough. what gender is it again? if its a boy it shouldn't be vicious if its a girl it should be kind of vicious also you might need to find it a sole mate.
You have to train your hanster to get used to you. Hamsters bite your two reasons, firstly because they are scared and secondly because they think that your fingers might be good to eat. First, it is a good idea to hold food in your fingertips, and let the hamster take the fod from your fingers. After a few days of this, you can move onto touching your hamster gently. The hamster still may try… Read More
All the animals that I can think of bite--except for goldfish. Russian Dwarf hammies DO bite, but it's in their natural instinct. You can tame this out of them, though. It will take a lot of time and patience. I am saying this as an experienced dwarf owner. Play with the hammiw everyday, DO NOT wake it up while its sleeping, and feed it food and treats by hand. yes, Russian dwarf do bite, i… Read More
First of all, this usually will not work. Most hamsters are at least a little bit afriad of their owners, so do not completely trust them to keep them safe while sleeping. As they can feel the movement of the human breathing, they are aware that they are moving when sitting in hand, so do not like going to sleep when conscious of this movement. It helps to take the hamster out of its house… Read More
I think Syrian hamsters - the large ones. I have had 7 hamsters and the syrians have all been the most calm and relaxed in your hand as well as not biting. I would advise against getting a dwarf Russian hamster or dwarf Chinese hamster because despite them looking cute they often bite and are very difficult to tame. Hope I helped :)
Hi everyone im eleven i just got a new hamster it bites and ive looked on the internet a lot of them say put a treat in your hand and let him get it but hell just dig under the wood and bite my finger?
The hamster may need to get used to your smell, try holding up your hand to the cage just out of reach of the mouth, don't take any sudden movements.
Cup one hand with the hamster on your palm, and put your other hand over it. The goal is to make the hamster feel secure but not squished. Hold your hamster in such a way that he/she is comfortable and that won't allow you to drop him/her. Another way is to hold your hamster with one hand against your body to make him or her feel safe. I've got a hamster but havn't held her… Read More
hold your hammy like a pencil put your other hand under your special hammy MAKE SURE THE HAMSTERS HEAD IS NOT TOUCHING YOUR HANDS AND THE HAMS FEET ARE SUPPORTED SO THE HAMMIES NOT TEMPTED TO BITE YOU.
if you just got a new hamster leave it alone for about a week, then you can start to put your hand in the cage and let him smell you. slowly you can put treats in your hand and if it trusts you it will crawl on to your hand and take it...even if your hamster is not new this is a good way for your hamster to trust you, and become friendly
Well, my sister's hamster bit for about two years, and finally, she could not stand it so she told the hamster, "No more treats for you!" But then, being a pet spoiler, like we all are, gave the hamster a treat, but then I had an idea. I began to train him almost, to work for the treat, by making him walk to the treat, then moving it again. Sound like animal cruelty? Read on… Read More
dont bite the hand that feeds you
Hamsters don't necessarily have nests, more like burrows. They are small and rounded, just enough size for the hamster to sleep in. Hamsters are about the size of the palm of your hand. If not, smaller.
How can I take out my dwarf hamster from its cage when it tries to bite me whenever i put my hand in the cage?
Try using a towel, or a wash cloth to hold him at first. As he gets used to being picked up you might not need it any more.
I had this problem with my hamster. I started hand feeding him and then that was all he could do. The hamster has got used to being hand fed. There is not alot you can do to change that now.
Gerbils tend to bite less in the first place, and if you get them from a respectable breeder and not from a pet store, the gerbil will probably already be hand-tamed and have no reason to bite except if it is threatened. Hamsters are nocturnal, and are not to keen on being woken up, and are therefore more prone to biting. As for hurting less, gerbils only nip unless they mean it and rarely draw… Read More
