Syrian hamsters are the most common species of hamster there is to find (and the largest). At pet stores, they are often referred to as Panda Bear hamsters, Golden hamsters, Black Bear hamsters, and Teddy Bear hamsters. These are just nicknames to draw attention, but they are really just Syrians. They make great pets, as they are calmer and friendlier than other smaller hamster varieties. Syrian hamsters are well-suited for young children or first time hamster owners and it is fairly easy to learn how to take care of them properly, although they do require gentle handling.

If you ask the pet store owner to show you a hamster close up this will do two things. It will show you how the hamster reacts to being handled, and it will enable you to see if your future pet looks healthy. You should never buy a hamster that has a wet tail, bald spots or lumps (except for the scent glands on their legs). You should also make sure that the hamster you buy has clean ears and a clean, dry bottom. Obviously there is always the chance that your pet will become ill at some point after you take them home but you at least want to make sure they are healthy when they leave the store. There is absoloutely nothing wrong with getting hamsters from a pet store.

Most pet store owners will be happy to provide as much information as they can about a hamster, so don’t be afraid to ask anything you want to know. If you just stand there and accept the first hamster you are offered then you are unlikely to get the pet you really want. Sadly, scenes like this are the rule, not the exception for animals sold in pet stores. Whether it's a dog or a hamster, animals bred for retail are often kept in filthy conditions, exposed to abuse and illness, and deprived of water, veterinary care and other necessities. Exotic animals aren’t the only ones who experience extreme pain and even death on their journey to pet stores. Other animals, including guinea pigs, and hamsters, often arrive dying from starvation, very ill, pregnant, or injured. Many animals are forced into tiny boxes and containers and suffer for days before being unpacked from the containers they were shipped in.Choosing a Healthy Hamster
Not every hamster in the pet store is of optimal health. Moving from supplier to store to a new home can be a stressful period for baby hamsters and they will often get sick from it. Learn how to choose a healthy hamster and what to watch for after you take it home. Hamsters that are younger are best as they will most likely be friendlier. Choose an active hamster and one that doesn't look like he has a wet bottom or weapy eyes. And even if a cage seems to have a few sick hamsters it is probably best to avoid buying any hamster from that group since hamster diseases are very contagious.this video is about pets well hamsters mostly n n it was film in october 2013
n i didnt think of uploading it till now
n i was with my friends at the pet store tht time n my friend n i were narrating wat they were thinkinThere are many hamster cage options available online and atpet stores. But some cages are better than others. Severalcages (like the ones with all the tubes and colors) may look cool but aren't very functional and difficult to clean while others aren't good for hamsters to live in at all (fish tanks). Smaller hamster breeds also have different cage considerations than the larger Syrian varieties. It's a good idea to get your hamster cage all set up with bedding, water bottle, chew toys, and other necessities before bringing your newhamster home. Check out what you need before you get your hamster, or just make sure you have what you should for the hamster you have now.
