Where do Hamster live? <ul><li>Wild golden hamsters: parts of Europe and Asia. </li></ul><ul><li>Syrians. These hamsters live in the Middle East desert and rocky areas. They have hot days and cold nights. There isn’t much food and water and the animal is nocturnal so they can escape the daytime heat. Their burrows are in deep sand and they live alone. The female will hoard food so that when she has pups, there will be food in the burrow. </li></ul><ul><li>Campbells. These hamsters live in Mongolia on deserts and sand dunes. There are hot days and cold nights there with very cold winters. They are totally covered with fur. They look for food at night and come home by dawn. They use other animal's burrows and redecorate by adding more tunnels for air and escape. They make an extra nest when the female is pregnant so that the new litter gets its own. Nests are made with grass or wool. </li></ul><ul><li>Winter Whites [Siberian]. These hamsters live in Siberia. They live on flat land with short grass. There are not many people and these hamsters are not afraid of humans. In snow, they can change their fur color to white so that they blend in better. The female will live with two males in a burrow and the males will help with the babies. </li></ul><ul><li>Roborovskis. These hamsters live on flat, sandy soil. They are nocturnal. Their burrows are not deep and enemies have an easier time preying on them. They can run faster than most hamsters because they have longer legs. </li></ul>
How has the Hamster adapted? <ul><li>There are many kinds of hamster but mine is black and white so if it goes behind a tree that is black and white it won’t get eaten </li></ul>
What is the behavior of a hamster? <ul><li>In the wild, hamsters make underground homes and have strong nest building instincts. They are nocturnal and should be left alone and quiet during the day. If the temperature becomes too cold, they may go into a deep sleep called hibernation. When two or more hamsters are put together they usually fight, so it is best to keep just one hamster. </li></ul>
