Syrian hamsters are one of the most popular pets, and for good reason! These wonderfully cute animals are normally tame, clean and easy to handle. As their name suggests, this variety of hamster originates from Syria and surrounding countries of the Middle East.

These beautiful bundles of joy usually make great first pets, with children able to learn about responsibility by looking after their own hamster.

Are Syrian hamsters different to other hamsters?

These aren’t the only breed of hamster that you can own as pets, their cousins include smaller Chinese and dwarf Roborovski hamsters. Each type of hammie has it’s own specific requirements and Syrian hamsters have a few notable differences to other breeds, these include:

  • Size – Syrian hamsters are normally around 13cm in length, which is notably larger than other hamster breeds.
  • Sociability – Unlike other types of hammie or small rodents, Syrian hamsters’ are solitary creatures who don’t do well when housed together.
  • Habitat requirements – Syrian hamsters are quite active and require a large enclosure that gives them space to move around.

What should you look for in a Syrian hamster cage

The cage that you buy your Syrian hamster will be their main environment, so should provide enough space and enrichment to keep them happy and healthy. It is very important that the cage you buy isn’t too small as this will lead to stress and pain for your hammie. It is possible to buy a number of different types of cages, with some comprising a more standard looking one-piece cage, others are a network of smaller cages that link up into a larger overall environment, and there are also enclosures which have a cage on top of a glass tank. All provide different benefits, but overall the golden rule is that you should look to get a cage that is as big as possible for the space you have.
