Hamster care at home
Hamster care – Many of us do not know the hamster, but many of us wish to raise it as it is very easy to raise, such as raising birds. I assure you that you will enjoy playing with hamsters even if you are 12 or 60 years old.
What is hamster ??
An animal is a rodent and it is not a mouse … between a rabbit and a mouse
Its shape is quite different from the mouse … and most of it is distinguished by the absence of the tail and the shortness of the ears … There are many types of long hair that resemble the game.
What is its origin or history?
The hamster was first raised in America … and since then it has been considered a domestic pet or animal.
It is from Syria … It is called the Gold Hamster (the Golden Hamster) which is the most common … I prefer it because its shape is acceptable and does not resemble the mouse.
Is it true that hamsters transmit disease or plague ?? The answer is not … because his immunity is very weak and if he is afflicted with any disease dies immediately … Unlike jerobot or mice whose immunity is strong and transmit many diseases.
I think he has one needle that protects him from scabies every 6 months.
Go to the animal shop after the age … because the hamster is a night animal … and you may not notice his activity in the morning.
Take a small crate like a cage where fish are placed … Do not leave it long in this cage … because it is narrow and poorly ventilated.
The hamsters live for a maximum of two or three years … so you have to bring a young man between 4 and 8 weeks old … as the hamster is brought up on the owner faster and more easily … Do not buy a hamster less than two weeks old for the possibility of death.
Choose the most active hamster … Your nose must be dry, clean and free of impurities … and eyes are shiny … Ask the shop owner to allow you to hold the hamster … and check his body well … his body must be dry … It should not have wounds or hair-free areas.
If you want to buy a pair of hamsters … or want to buy a male and a female … ask the owner of the shop about the way they mate … because they can start fights when they grow up.
