I had a Black Bear Hamster for many years as a child. We got that particular breed, because they have the longest life span of all hamsters. He was absolutely adorable- A very cuddly and friendly animal to keep. Hamsters over all are incredibly easy to maintain. In my opinion, every child should have one at some point. The biggest problem was that these hamsters are so smart... They're escape artists! You have to make sure that your cage is escape-proof in every way. Spring for the more expensive cage or you just might wake up to Mission Impossible: Find Tiny Hamster!
