Species: Syrian hamster
Age: Approx 9 months
Rohat (sunrise in Kurdish) is a friendly, happy Syrian hamster who came into our care after his previous human couldn’t cope with his bar chewing behaviour. Unsurprisingly, this was caused by a too-small set-up!
Since being with us in a 100x50cm set-up, Rohat has been a happy young man, displaying normal hamster behaviours including burrowing, foraging, and stashing his food in his multi-chamber house. He also really enjoys running on his wheel, and is sometimes still powering away on it in the mornings.
Rohat is good to handle, but as with all hamsters, calm and considerate handling is required.
Minimum housing requirements: 100x50cm floor space on one level, plenty of suitable substrate for burrowing & a 28cm wheel.
