The Russian dwarf hamster of Campbell (Phodopus campbelli); the Siberian Russian dwarf hamster or Winter White (Phodopus sungorus); the Roborovsky dwarf hamster (Phodopus roborovskii). More recently, other hamsters are spreading in the Italian market, such as the Chinese hamster (Cricetulus griseus).
Hamsters have a small to medium size of various sizes. The body is covered entirely by a thick fur with very elastic and very abundant skin. The legs are rather short, and the forelegs have only four toes, the hind ones five.
They have long mustaches which represent organs of tactile sense for when they move in the dark. The eyes are very protruding, and their peculiar characteristic is the cheek pockets, which can contain many seeds, up to half of the thorax.
The teeth are composed of the incisors, two upper and two lower, very long and sharp, which are used both to open the seeds and as a defensive weapon.
Beware, hamsters do not have sweat glands; for this reason, they are susceptible to high temperatures and can quickly go against heatstroke.
They are shy and reserved and only come out into the open when they feel safe, explore their territory, and, if alerted, immediately take refuge in the lair.
Today, people have handled them since they were very young. Many of their behaviors have been blunted, and many people show full confidence in their owners by letting themselves be treated quietly without showing any sign of annoyance.
