This is an in-depth guide to hamster care, their diet, environment, history, and a whole lot more. In order to make things easier, I've created a menu with links so you can click to the specific section you're looking for. But I do suggest reading everything here and on my website. Enjoy! Hamsters
Many hamsters can be tamed in a very short period of time with gentle regular handling. When handling hamsters, they usually only bite simply because they are frightened.
If the hamster is a bit jumpy or nervous it a great idea first of all just to get it used to your hand prior to attempting to lift it out of its cage. Try gently stroking the hamster while it is within its cage and offering it bits of food from your hand. It’ll soon realize it has nothing at all to fear.
