Hammysworld is a Syrian hamster breeder’s site with information mainly on Syrian hamsters but a lot of is relevant to dwarf hamsters as well. If you enjoy watching videos and looking at photos of hamsters, there are plenty of them on Hammysworld too. They also have hamsters for sale and adoption from time to time.
My favorite part of Hammysworld is their section on baby hamsters. It has photos, videos, and helpful information such as what to feed baby hamsters, how to hand feed orphaned baby hamsters, caring for a runt and much more.
Hammysworld also has information on breeding Syrian hamsters and highlights the importance of being a responsible breeder. To quote:
Before commencing on any project of breeding hamsters “PLEASE THINK CAREFULLY” What is your reason for breeding? Is it because you love the particular species you intend to breed. Or is it just to see the wonders of the birth (which incidentally is very rare) as the birth usually takes place in the dead of night. Or is it to make that bit of extra cash? Theses are not sound and valid reasons for breeding.
Responsible breeders always seek to improve the species.
I fully agree with Hammysworld and their message about responsible breeding and I think it applies to dwarf hamsters as well. Too often, people breed hamsters for the wrong reasons or just because they can.
Besides baby hamsters and hamster breeding, Hammysworld also talks about hamster’s health (with a huge list of common hamster ailments), diet, housing, and more. There is so much useful information on the site. And a lot of it is first-hand experience that you normally would not even find in hamster guidebooks!
If you are looking to learn more about Syrian hamsters or to improve your hamster knowledge in general, I highly recommend checking out Hammysworld.
