Species: Syrian hamster
Age: Approx 6 months
Sebastian came into our care through no fault of his own and has really taken his relocation in his stride. He was previously housed in a cage that was far too small with zero enrichment, and when moved into a larger set-up here he immediately explored every inch and got the hang of running in his wheel straight away. He enjoys nibbling on flax seed sprays and foraging around in his substrate for his natural-style food mix.
Sebastian is a little nervous but hasn’t been bitey at all and is ok with calm handling. He will just need a patient adopter who will give him time to settle in and enjoy being able to hamster.
Housing requirements: A minimum of 100x50cm on one level, with plenty of safe substrate for burrowing and a 28cm (or bigger) wheel.
