The most common rodent pet, the Golden Hamster, is native to Syria. At one time, hamsters went crazy in that nation; in the long run, agriculturists became burnt out on the critters uncovering their root vegetables, and prepared mutts to chase them. Others found a productive exchange hamster fur.

At the point when the Syrian Hamster was found in 1839 by English zoologist George Robert Waterhouse, he gave it the latin name Cricetus Auratus meaning Golden Hair thus the Syrian Hamster is likewise commonly referred to as the Golden Hamster or as it's been said in Finland, Kultahamsteri.

There are more than 20 species of hamsters, which are identified with voles, lemmings, and mice. Just five species are common as pets. Wild hamsters are found all through quite a bit of Europe and Asia. All hamsters are nighttime, or dynamic at night.
