Rory - my first hamster

I really liked this hamster. He was relatively friendly, although he would nip sometimes if he was sick of being handled. Unfortunately, he passed away during a bad snowstorm when we lost power and had no heat for a few days. This type of hamster is not good in cold conditions.

Pros and Cons:

+ Friendliness - rarely bit, allowed me and others to hold him
+ Cute - chubby and adorable, very fun to watch
+ Cheap - paid only $18 for him and his bedding/food was cheap

- Did sometimes bite
- Very fast and sometimes difficult to hold
- Did not hold up well under normal New England conditions of losing power during a snowstorm.
