Corey the Demonic Hamster

Posted Apr 06, 2013

This hamster was so vicious and aggressive that I had to give him to someone who agreed to never, ever try to touch him or pick him up. I tried over and over to get him to become accustomed to me, but he always bit and would not let go until I was bleeding.

THIS IS NOT A HAMSTER FOR CHILDREN.

Pros and Cons:

+ Cheap - I paid only $13 for him and his food/bedding is cheap.

- Appearance - male Chinese dwarf hamsters have prominent testicles that are unsightly. They are also not chubby like most people think hamsters should be and have stubby mouse-like tails.
- Temperament - see above. Mine was vicious.
- Intelligence - they do not learn their name or respond to their owner's voice.
